Oct 5, 2013; Tallahassee, FL, USA; Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston (5) warms up before the start of the game against the Maryland Terrapins at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Tallahassee, FL - Last year the Tallahassee Police Department received a complaint of sexual battery against Florida State University star quarterback Jameis Winston.
No charges have been filed against Winston, and the investigation remains active.
The complaint was filed Dec. 7, 2012, according to TPD reports. The complainant is cooperating with the State Attorney's Office, said Officer David Northway, spokesman for TPD.
The family of the woman who identified Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston as the man who sexually battered her criticized the Tallahassee Police Department Wednesday, saying a detective warned against proceeding with the case because Tallahassee is "a big football town" and she would be "raked over the coals."
A statement from the family says that on Dec. 7, 2012, the woman was raped by an unknown person. The woman immediately reported it to law enforcement and cooperated with all requests from officers, the letter says.
Now, according to ESPN, a new DNA analysis has confirmed that the DNA provided by Jameis Winston matched the sample taken from the underwear of a woman who has accused him of sexual battery.
