Jameis Winston Will Not be Charged in Sexual Assault Investigation (Video)

On Thursday afternoon, Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs took to the podium to announce whether or not his office will bring sexual assault charges against Florida State Seminoles redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, stemming from an alleged incident that took place back in December of 2012.

Before Meggs even stated his final verdict, Tallahassee’s own Jeff Cameron from 97.9 went on ESPN about ten minutes before the press conference aired on ESPN and announced that, through information that he received from sources, Winston would not be charged.

Not long after Cameron made his appearance, Meggs went in front of the media and reiterated that exact sentiment and now it’s official–Jameis will indeed not be facing any charges.

Meggs held the press conference for about 20 minutes while he took some questions from the assembled media in attendance.

Afterward, Winston’s attorney, Tim Jansen, also had his time with the microphones and cameras:

So now, with all of that being said and done, Jameis and the rest of the team can now focus on the task at hand, beating the Duke Blue Devils in Charlotte this weekend, and then heading off to Pasadena to bring home the crystal ball, against whomever the opponent may be.
