(AUDIO) Ira Schoffel of the Tallahassee Democrat: Jameis Winston’s Support in the Capital Has Never Been Higher
With the news that FSU star QB Jameis Winston is being investigated for sexual assault, Ira Schoffel of the Tallahassee Democrat joined Booger and Rich for the latest.
Schoffel said from what they gather, the police put the investigation to bed earlier this year because they didn’t have enough evidence. Last week a reporter began inquiring about the charges and TMZ eventually picked it up and now it’s a major story. Now the Tallahassee Police Department turned it out to the state’s attorney’s office to see if they needed to investigate further.
Right now we don’t know who the victim is according to Schoffel. Schoffel did say that it is an ongoing investigation but the report doesn’t name anybody in particular. Apparently he’s named in the report Schoffel said but his information is redacted from the report.
Winston’s defense attorney has said that Winston is a suspect Schoffel said.
The support for Winston in Tallahassee has never been higher but if he is charged, that could change.
