The path to the Heisman Trophy and a National Championship just had the last speed bump removed.
Florida State Quarterback Jameis Winston will not be arrested, charged or face further scrutiny in the accusation made against him by a young lady he had a consensual sexual relation with late last year.
“We’ve carefully examined all the evidence in this case and determined that NO charges will be filed in this case.” says Willie Meggs, State Attorney for Florida.
In the probable-cause statement and search-warrant request, Tallahassee PD Investigator Laura Gereg said the woman told police she and her friends were drinking at Potbelly’s bar earlier that night and had about five or six shots.
She said after her friends left the bar, she began to feel intoxicated and her memory at that point became “broken”.
She got into a taxi with a black male and entered a ground-floor apartment, at which point the man stripped her down and raped her as she tried to escape.
The search-warrant request said that the woman told police “a black man with dreadlocks came into the room” and told the man to stop, but the suspect took her into the restroom and “completed the act.”
92-9 The Game’s Jamie Dukes points out that “there are numerous contradictions in this case including multiple DNA results, toxicology reports and the alleged victim’s recalling of that night’s activities.”
