Jameis Winston, QB for the #1 ranked Florida State University football team and current front-runner for the Heisman trophy found out today that prosecutors will NOT charge him with sexual assault in connection with an incident which occurred December of 2012 where a woman claimed he raped her in an apartment after she and her friends had five to six shots at a bar..
The lawyer of the alleged victim’s family released a statement after Meggs made the announcement that no charges would be made.
“The victim and her family appreciate the State Attorney’s efforts in attempting to conduct a proper investigation after an inordinate delay by the Tallahassee Police Department,” the statement read. “The victim in this case had the courage to immediately report her rape to the police and she relied upon them to seek justice. The victim has grave concerns that her experience, as it unfolded in the public eye and through social media, will discourage other victims of rape from coming forward and reporting.”
