(AUDIO) Prosecutor Dave Zulfa Says If Detectives Didn’t Follow Up with Jameis Winston, They Made a Mistake

Zulfa said that the evidence is significant because it proves that Winston and the victim did have some kind of contact at some time. The disturbing part to Zulfa is that ESPN got their hands on the reports. Zulfa says in cases he prosecutes, he wants all of the information to stay in house because you can’t gain anything as a prosecutor by letting it out to the public.

Zulfa also said it seems like the police department did seem to take the proper steps at first to collect evidence from the victim, but it’s inappropriate of them to take into account the alleged assailants high profile in Tallahassee. They could’ve spoken to Jameis Winston because Winston has the right not to speak to them. If they didn’t follow up with Winston, that’s a poor judgment call.

Zulfa says as a prosecutor, he never files charges or pursues a case based on allegations alone. However, having Winston’s DNA is powerful evidence. Zulfa said he would also interview those who aren’t friends of the victim or the suspect to get impartial statements. Zulfa also said he would thoroughly examine all of the evidence gathered by detectives. Then you can make a decision whether or not to charge the suspect.
