TALLAHASSEE -- With distractions swirling around his program and a scheduled game against a one-win, nonconference opponent Saturday, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is pleased with his team’s focus.
“The next opponent is the most important and that’s kind of what we’ve been preaching all year,” he said, “so it does feel good to come out here and have the effort and the execution.”
Emails between Tallahassee city commissioners, obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat, indicate that the alleged sexual-assault case involving Jameis Winston went cold as a result of the victim no longer wishing to pursue the case. The case was designated as open-inactive in February 2013.
Last Tuesday, the case was handed over to the state attorney’s office and the status was reinstated to open-active. Willie Meggs, the state attorney, said his office plans to interview the victim sometime this week.
