ESPN: Winston DNA Linked to Victim


This is still developing, but per an ESPN report Jameis Winston's DNA has been matched to samples taken from the victim on the night of the report, 12/7/2012. 


"According to the DNA analysis report, a copy of which was viewed by ESPN.com on Wednesday, the Florida state crime lab determined the chance of the DNA in the woman's underwear being a match for someone other than Winston was one in 2.2 trillion."

While this is not evidence of a sexual assault in and of itself, it does indeed link Winston to the victim in a very real, physical way.

Earlier in the day the victim's family released a statement accusing the Tallahassee Police Department of impropriety in their investigation.

Winston's attorney, Tim Jansen, is yet to respond to the ESPN report, though he did decline comment in regard to the statement from the victim's family.

Earlier in the week Jansen issued a statement asking for silence from state attorney Willie Meggs and his office after Meggs implied Winston and his attorney were instigating a cover-up to the Associated Press over the weekend.

Winston has not been charged with a crime, but under Florida State University guidelines he would be suspended indefinitely if he were to be charged with a felony.
