Lawyer: Two back FSU QB's account
By David M. Hale
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The lawyer for Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston said Thursday two witnesses who were with Winston last year when an alleged sexual assault occurred will corroborate Winston's account of the event.
Tim Jansen told ESPN.com that Winston was being investigated for "his potential involvement" in an incident in December 2012. Jansen provided police with affidavits from two witnesses earlier this week, and he said at least one of those witnesses has already been interviewed by police and another is in the process of being interviewed.
David Northway, a spokesman for the Tallahassee Police Department, would not confirm nor deny that any interviews have taken place.
A source told ESPN's Joe Schad that as of Thursday morning, Winston had exercised his right not to speak to Tallahassee police or provide a statement to them in the investigation. Asked if Winston was prepared to cooperate with Tallahassee police, Jansen said Thursday afternoon, "We'll cooperate as much as we can."
