The decision on whether or not to charge Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston with a crime won't be made until early next week, likely Monday or Tuesday, according to ESPN's Mark Schlabach. There had been some speculation that a decision would be made as early as Friday.
A Tallahassee woman accused Winston of sexual assault in December 2012, but the case went inactive a few months later. It was recently activated after a media inquiry prompted a review by the Tallahassee Police Department, and a DNA test proved Winston had an encounter with his accuser. However, that doesn't mean a crime was committed. Winston reportedly has not spoken with authorities, and his attorney, Tim Jansen, maintains his client's innocence.
Winston has led Florida State to a 10-0 start and a position at No. 2 in the BCS standings. With 2,938 passing yards and 28 touchdowns, he is a leading candidate for the Heisman Trophy.
