Jameis Winston accuser told police she had five cups of vodka, shot at bar

Jameis WinstonThe woman who accused Jameis Winston of sexual assault had a difficult time recalling the events of the night she says she was raped.

In her initial statement to police, the woman could not recall how she met the suspect. She did not remember if the person wore a condom. She said she did not remember dressing herself.

Why did the woman have difficulty remembering so much? She was seemingly drunk.

A Tallahassee Police Department report states that the alleged victim told police she had about five cups of vodka and a shot at the bar — Potbelly’s.

When Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs announced that Winston would not be charged with sexual assault, he said he didn’t know if they would reach the burden of conviction if they went forward with charges.

“We have a duty as prosecutors to determine if each case has a reasonable likelihood of conviction,” Meggs said. “After reviewing the facts in this case, we do not feel that we can reach those burdens.”

They say her ability to recall details from the night in question was a problem.

At another point in the documents, it states that the woman hit her head and had trouble remembering things.

In his affidavit, one of the witnesses, Ronald Darby, states that “the female did not appear intoxicated.” In his statement, witness Chris Casher, a DE on the Seminoles football team, stated the accuser “was not intoxicated.” He also says that the accuser gave him her phone number and virtually invited herself to their apartment.

“She was not slurring or stumbling,” Casher said in his statement.

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.

Jamal Roberts DNA also reportedly found on Jameis Winston accuser’s clothing

Jameis WinstonFlorida state attorney Willie Meggs announced on Thursday that no charges will be filed against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston after an investigation into a sexual assault accusation. Among the findings included in the investigation was information about the accuser having DNA from more than one man on her clothing the night of the sexual encounter.

As we know, Winston’s DNA was found on the accuser’s underwear. Winston’s attorney said his client had consensual sex with the 19-year-old woman. In addition to Winston’s DNA, Meggs revealed that a second man’s DNA was also found on the accuser’s shorts. Meggs said there were “several” people in the room at the time the sexual encounter occurred. Two of those people were FSU players Chris Casher and Ronald Darby, who claim they watched the accuser willingly perform oral sex on Winston.

According to the official documents from the case, a swab revealed that the second DNA donor was a man named Jamal Roberts. Some media outlets are reporting that Roberts is a collegiate football player at another school. LBS has been unable to confirm these reports.

Meggs said in his press conference that the DNA from the third party belonged to the accuser’s boyfriend, though he noted that the boyfriend refused to speak with investigators. Meggs also said that the accuser acknowledged having sex with her boyfriend.

Based on the findings from the investigation, it seems certain that there was a third party involved at some point. The timeline of events is a bit more unclear.

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.

victim side Jameis

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.
