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.
