Jameis Winston decision could arrive mid-December

Winston could know if he'll be facing legal charges after the ACC title game.

The State Attorney's Office will likely need just two more weeks to determine whether or not charges will be filed against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston following allegations that he sexually assaulted a girl last December.

If the final decision is reached in two weeks, it would be announced between the ACC title game and the Heisman trophy presentation. Some have begun to wonder if the ongoing situation could cost Winston a shot at the Heisman, especially as voters continue to weigh off-field actions even more than ever.

The attorneys handling the case are reportedly waiting on evidence to arrive from the night in question, according to the CBS report and assistant state attorney Georgia Cappleman.

The investigation has been a messy one from the start. One state attorney overseeing the investigation recently described it a "cluster," saying the police department "clammed up" with its investigating. The attorney of the alleged victim also claimed the police declined to question Winston as a suspect and urged the victim to not pursue charges.
