Jameis Winston's lawyer says testimony shows sex was consensual

In response to Wednesday night's ESPN report that Jameis Winston's DNA matches a sample taken in December from the person of his accuser, the Florida State quarterback's lawyer said Thursday the results weren't a surprise and that two witnesses back Winston's story. He also expressed further frustration with the public nature of the case, as he likewise did last week.

The Heisman Trophy front-runner was accused in December 2012 of sexual battery in Tallahassee. The investigation went curiously dark for much of 11 months, with lawyers for both sides and the State Attorney hurling accusations tied to the case's complexities.
