Earlier today, a bunch of new information about the sexual assault case involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston leaked out. According to search warrants that were first obtained by the website Tomahawk Nation, the woman who accused Winston of raping her last December reportedly told investigators that she was sexually assaulted by a man at an apartment after a night out at a local bar in Tallahassee, Fla. She could not tell police where the apartment was located, but she did provide them with some details about the alleged sexual assault. Here are a few of the details that appeared in the search warrants:
- The woman remembers riding in a cab from the bar that she was at to an apartment with a African-American man.
- The woman remembers taking about five shots of vodka before leaving the bar.
- The woman remembers a man having sex with her despite her telling him that she did not want to have sex.
- The woman remembers the man dressing her after the alleged incident, putting her onto a scooter, and dropping her off at a nearby intersection.
Despite this information, the prosecutors in the Jameis Winston case will reportedly not charge Winston with a crime. Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs is preparing to hold a press conference on the matter at 2 p.m. But ESPN Tallahassee's Jeff Cameron spoke with a source close to the investigation a short time ago who told him that Meggs is going to announce that Winston will not be charged with sexual assault today.
There will obviously be a ton of reaction and backlash to this news. Winston's lawyers are expected to hold a press conference of their own at about 3:30 p.m. to provide a reaction to Meggs' decision. So stay tuned, and we'll be sure to provide you with all of the latest information about Winston's situation.
Meggs has confirmed that Winston will not be charged with sexual assault.
Was it just us, or was there a lot of uncomfortable laughter that took place during Meggs' press conference today? Nope, it wasn't just us:
