Jameis Winston sexual assault alleged victim’s side of story told to police

Jameis Winston Jameis Winston will not be charged for an alleged sexual assault, the Florida state attorney announced on Thursday.

The Florida State redshirt freshman quarterback’s lawyer said his client had sex with the alleged victim on the night in question. The attorney said the sex was consensual, whereas the alleged victim claims that was not the case.

Since there is a huge difference between what the two have told police, we’d like you to have the ability to read the accuser’s side of the story.

The accuser told police she could not recall how she got to the place where the incident took place. There seems to be some hints that she was drugged or her memory was impaired by alcohol, because she claimed she could not recall how she met the suspect.

The alleged victim claimed she tried kicking the person off of her and had her arms pinned down. The alleged victim claims she was taken to the bathroom, where the assault continued. She said she did not remember dressing herself afterwards but she did remember riding on a scooter being driven by the suspect and later being dropped off.

Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault

Jameis-Winston-Florida-StateFlorida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault or any other crime, as first reported on Thursday by 97.9 ESPN Tallahassee’s Jeff Cameron on Thursday. The state attorney held a press conference shortly after the news surfaced.

“We have carefully examined all the evidence in this case and have concluded that no charges will be filed against anyone in this case,” state attorney Willie Meggs confirmed.

Winston was accused of rape by a female student nearly a year ago, and the case has been under investigation for weeks. Last month, the alleged victim claimed (through a statement from her attorney) that Winston raped her and that police discouraged her from pursuing charges against the freshman superstar. Winston’s DNA was also reportedly found on the accuser’s underwear, but Winston’s attorney claimed his client had consensual sex with the 19-year-old woman.

On Thursday, search warrants were released that detailed accusations against Winston from the night of the incident. The accuser allegedly told police that she had five or six shots of alcohol that night and that her “memory is very broken from that point forward.” She claimed that she remembered being in a cab with a black man and taken back to an apartment, where the man began to rape her. The 19-year-old said another man entered the room and told man who was having sex with her — who she later identified as Winston — to stop. She said the two went to the bathroom “where he completed the act.”

The accuser’s blood alcohol level was .040 the night of the encounter. There was no evidence of any drugs having been in her system. Meggs also said that the state attorney’s office did not consider charging the accuser with filing a false report.

After reviewing all of the information, investigators have either determined that there is not enough information to get a conviction or that the accuser lied.

Jameis Winston’s Twitter account hacked with whiskey tweet

Jameis Winston has been completely inactive on Twitter since August 5, but that changed on Tuesday when a bizarre retweet was shared by his account.

Winston’s @Jaboowins Twitter account retweeted a message about wanting to get “whiskey wasted” which you can see below:

That tweet made no sense, so it’s no surprise that Florida State later said the Seminoles quarterback was hacked:

Jimbo Fisher doesn’t allow his players to tweet during the season, so it wouldn’t have made sense for Winston to break the policy with a retweet like that. Well, not unless he really wants to get whiskey wasted.

Jameis Winston’s girlfriend silent on sexual assault issue since news broke

Jameis Winston girlfriend Breion Allen

Jameis Winston’s girlfriend has been silent on Twitter regarding the sexual assault investigation her boyfriend faces ever since the news broke last week.

As we shared last month at LBS, Jameis Winston’s girlfriend is Breion Allen, a basketball player at Rice.

Like Jameis, Breion is in her second year of college. They both come from the same area in Alabama, though they went to different high schools. We can trace their relationship back to at least the summer of 2011, so we know they have been together for a while. They seemed to be especially close over the summer; most of Jameis’ Twitter activity revolved around his relationship with Allen, who even helped him on the football fields and caught passes from him.

But since the news of the sexual assault investigation broke last week, Allen has only sent one tweet and one retweet. LBS sent her a tweet to ask if she and Jameis are still together and did not receive a response. A look at Allen’s Twitter history shows she will sometimes go a week without activity.

Allen did tweet recently that the end of the semester was approaching and that she had to focus on her grades. Her team also just opened their season and has gone 3-2. Breion has averaged 3 points in 13.3 minutes this season.

The alleged sexual assault involving Winston and his accuser occurred on Dec. 7 2012. Winston’s attorney said on Thursday that the Florida State quarterback had sex with the woman, but that it was consensual. Unless he and Breion were taking a break at the time or allow each other some freedom in their relationship, Jameis might have some repairing to do.

Jameis Winston accuser reportedly has left school

Jameis-Winston-Florida-StateThe woman accusing Jameis Winston of sexual assault has left school at Florida State University, per a report.

TMZ says the accuser had been attending school at FSU until last week, when word of the investigation emerged. She left school after deciding it wasn’t in her best interest to be around campus.

Winston’s attorney said Thursday that the Seminoles quarterback had sex with the woman, but he said it was consensual.

“We are not surprised with the results of the DNA,” Winston’s attorney said at a press conference Thursday, per USA Today. “We voluntarily submitted to a DNA. The only thing we are surprised by is it was leaked out by law enforcement. The question the people should ask is, why is it being leaked? For what purpose?”

The attorney for the accuser released a statement on Wednesday in which she said local police warned her against accusing Winston of rape because Tallahassee is a big football town.

DNA from accuser’s underwear reportedly matches Jameis Winston’s

Jameis WinstonThe DNA taken from the underwear of the woman accusing Jameis Winston of sexual battery matches with the DNA of the Florida State quarterback, according to a report.

ESPN reported on Wednesday that a DNA analysis conducted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Tuesday showed that the DNA taken from the woman’s underwear matched the DNA sample provided to them by Winston. ESPN adds that the “Florida state crime lab determined that the chances of the DNA in the woman’s underwear are a match for someone other than Winston was one in 2.2 trillion.”

The DNA sample from the woman’s underwear was obtained using a sexual assault kit on Dec. 7 2012, the day the accuser says she was sexually assaulted. Winston recently was swabbed for his sample.

It’s important to note that Winston’s DNA sample matching the accuser’s does not mean he sexually assaulted her.

There are actually two stories going on here.

The first concerns the sexual assault. Was the woman sexually assaulted, and was she sexually assaulted by Winston?

The second concerns the investigation. Was the accuser was discouraged by law enforcement from pursuing the case, as she alleged in a statement from her attorney? Both scenarios are extremely troubling.

The alleged assault occurred last December, but the case was said to have transitioned from open-active to open-inactive in February. Tallahassee interim police chief Tom Coe said the accuser stopped cooperating with police in February, but through her attorney, the accuser says she was discouraged from continuing with the case. The case was essentially re-opened last week because they received new evidence.

Florida’s state attorney, William Meggs, says he did not hear about the case until last week. Meggs told ESPN that his office would ultimately decide whether it believes it has sufficient evidence to charge Winston with a crime.

Alleged Jameis Winston victim says she was raped; police warned her against pursuing charges

Jameis-Winston-Florida-StateThe alleged victim who claims she was sexually assaulted by Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston released an alarming statement through her family’s attorney on Wednesday. According to the release, the victim identified Winston as her attacker in January after she was “raped by an unknown person” on Dec. 7, 2012. From that point, she claims authorities discouraged her from pursuing charges against the freshman phenom.

“We requested assistance from an attorney friend to interact with law enforcement on the victim’s behalf,” the victim’s family said in a statement, via the Tampa Bay Times. “When the attorney contacted Detective (Scott) Angulo immediately after Winston was identified, Detective Angulo told the attorney that Tallahassee was a big football town and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable.”

The family also alleged that Angulo refused to collect Winston’s DNA or interview his roommate, who is said to have witnessed the attack. Angulo allegedly stated that “such activity would alert Winston and the matter would go public.” The family claims it repeatedly attempted to obtain blood work results from Angulo and the Tallahassee Police Departments victim advocate and was led to believe that only law enforcement was aware of the alleged crime.

Instead, the victim’s family says the victim was “devastated” last week when she learned that investigators had informed Winston of the accusations last February. The family is shocked that Winston’s defense will have been given this much time to prepare its case, time they say was not given to the state attorney’s office. The statement ended with questions that the family wants answered now that the case has gone public against their will.

The questions dealt with why DNA evidence wasn’t collected and why Winston was not interviewed as part of a proper investigation. They also want to know why Winston was not listed as a suspect in the police report once the victim identified him in early January. In addition, the victim’s family is asking why a copy of the police report was given to the Florida State Police Department when Winston’s attorney represents the school’s football team.

There are two sides to every story, but the victim’s side clearly makes things look very ugly for all of those involved. If it is determined that the victim was discouraged from pursuing the case because Winston is a prominent athlete, there could be a massive investigation.
