Erica Kinsman, Jameis Winston accuser, goes public with story (Video)
Erica Kinsman, the woman who accused Jameis Winston of raping her nearly three years ago, told her story this week in a documentary that aired on CNN. The claims she made are very disturbing.
A lot of the information wasn’t new, but hearing it straight from Kinsman is chilling. She said Winston began raping her in his bedroom but picked her up and brought her to the the tile bathroom floor after telling her “the door will lock in here.”
“I was trying to push him off and kick him off, but he was too big,” Kinsman explained. “I said ‘please stop’ multiple times and I said ‘no.’ Eventually he pushed his hand over my face and pushed my face to the floor and just continued to rape me.”
Kinsman also described taking a scooter ride home from Winston because she had no idea where she was. She said she didn’t want to hold onto Winston after what had happened but was afraid of falling off.
Much of the documentary dealt with how the Tallahassee police failed to do their jobs. Kinsman said marks were appearing on her body when she went to the hospital to have a rape kit performed.
“They were watching bruises appear as I was laying in the hospital bed,” she said
Detective Scott Angulo, a Florida State graduate, is the officer who allegedly discouraged Kinsman from pursuing charges against Winston.
“This is a huge football town,” Kinsman claims Angulo told her. “You really should think long and hard about whether you want to press charges or not. It didn’t make sense to me. I just thought that’s his job, why is he not gonna do it?”
Lawyers for Winston have threatened to sue over the CNN documentary, but it aired anyway. You can understand why they didn’t want it going public, as Kinsman shared a great amount of detail (some of which we heard before) and was very convincing. The documentary is a bad look for Winston and Tallahassee law enforcement.
