TALLAHASSEE -- An assistant state attorney says prosecutors did not receive information about an 11-month-old sexual assault allegation involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston until Tuesday.
Tallahassee police investigated the Heisman Trophy contender in connection with a sexual assault that was reported nearly a year ago in an off-campus apartment. FSU records show the first report was made to campus police on Dec. 7 by a student at a dormitory. The investigation was handed over to Tallahassee police, who aren’t saying much about the ongoing investigation.
Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said Thursday he was pleased with the way his team had banded together, and Winston has kept his focus on football.
“[Winston has] been great,” Fisher said. “He went out and practiced well, played well and eliminated clutter from what I can understand as far as distractions and practiced well.”
