TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The attorney for a woman who accused star Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault said Thursday that she intends to sue the school, the Tallahassee Police Department and the player himself.
Jameis Winston will learn whether he faces prosecution Thursday when a state attorney announces the results of an investigation into a sexual assault allegation against the quarterback for top-ranked Florida State.
A woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault told police she was raped at an apartment after a night of drinking at a bar, according to a search warrant released hours before a prosecutor was to announce whether the Heisman Trophy contender should face charges.
Its handling of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is just the latest controversy to hit the Tallahassee Police Department.
The family and attorney of the alleged victim in a sexual assault investigation involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston on Wednesday sharply criticized Tallahassee police in their first public comments about the case.
A black camerawoman who works for CNN said Thursday that she was not surprised to have two people at the Republican National Convention throw peanuts at her and say "this is what we feed animals."
Patricia Carroll said she plans to file a notice to sue the police department early next week.
Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case and Carroll said she received a letter from the department that said an internal affairs investigation found that the case was handled with proper procedures.
