08:47 AM ET 11.17 | It could be a few weeks before the State Attorney's office decides whether to file charges against FSU quarterback Jameis Winston, the focus of an alleged sexual assault in December 2012. But privately, FSU officials with knowledge of the case would be surprised if Winston is charged. Winston hasn't spoken to police. FSU never considered suspending him because he hasn't been charged.

Not Untouchable, Bro.

Okay and why is that?

Unless new information has come to light, this should have been taken care of one way or another a long time ago.

Law enforcement may be the one that should be called on the carpet if they dropped the ball last year.

What no one has publicly stated (at least that I have read) is why did the investigation turn towards him one month after the police report? Was this woman at a party? Was she drunk and woke up later assaulted? There has been absolutely no sharing of factual information that clarifies why the investigation turned towards JW.

This is all just a typo and misunderstanding by the police report, One investigator read it as a SEMENOLE not SEMINOLE player.

Yep.

If she was actually assaulted then my heartfelt feeling go out to her and I want punishment for the crime. I don't want BS leniency becase he's a popular jock.

If these charges are groundless then my faith in Winston will be restored.

If, however, the Tallahassee police tried to sweep this under the rug to protect the team there are some very important things going on here besides the alleged perp and victim. Why would any community put up with police coruption?

Yes she had a few...

Yes she did go to hospital and did the kit thing...


Did JW do it.. dont know

The alleged victim was supposedly drunk, the description of the assailant was between 5'9" and 5'11", while Jameis is reportedly 6'4" and the report is suspiciously redacted and delayed from nearly a year ago. The only part I don't totally understand is why, if he is innocent (which it would appear) he does not talk to the investagators. Wait.....investiGATORS! ;)

I'm sure when you're drunk ...

... 5'-11" looks like 6'-4"
... 5 inches looks like 10, feels like 4

Because his Attorney advised him better

Ditto, standard (and wise) advice LUS. What no one is reporting (and I am totally speculating here) why did the investigation turn towards him one month (January 2013) after the incident?

First off, he was a nobody (in terms of popularity or notoriety) at that time. Second, how did the woman or other persons come to identify him? Was he at a party where this event occurred? Did someone implicate him? There are just a chiitload of questions here with little to no public information.

Hang on there. He'd already received enough attention as a baseball player to be drafted by the Texas Rangers in 2012. Serious baseball tools. HS All American.

Yea you know that but the sorority sisters don't have a clue. My point is that he was not by any means a household name, not even in T-hasse.

You've mentioned you're a lawyer, BB. Do you think DNA evidence was obtained from the victim? Would the investigation have moved forward more quickly had this evidence been in possession of the authorities?

He wasnt a nobody in T-Hassee...

And trust me... those girls know who he was.... 6-4 heir apparent to the QB spot and a big time baseball player to boot...

So we will have to wait on that

Because he lives in reality, and has common sense. NEVER talk to law enforcement!

Bingo. And to Harley, if she went to hospital then the rape kit swabs were probably administered. I have no idea what is tying him to this police report.

Apparently I am incorrect in my assumption about his notoriety in early 2013 as LUS has said he was known. I was merely going by Ohio State standards. Unless a kid has taken the field most students just know they play football and that's it. Ohio State has B Miller, Guiton and Cardale Jones. Cardale Jones (who has appeared in 3 games) can go wherever on campus and no one knows who he is.

Now he wasnt famous nationally yet...

And maybe if he was playing another position, I could see people not knowing who he was... But the kid stands out... And I am sure he was with other players if this was a party
