Re: Things Getting Ugly in Tallahassee
They have the DNA, so it doesn't matter that she said he was 5-11 and he's really 6-4(ish?), they have proof that he was "there", the only question is if she agreed to be with him, or he forced himself upon her.
Listening to Mike & Mike this morning and they had their legal guy on (forget his name, but if you watch or listen to ESPN you've heard him by now for various legal issues that come up in sports). He said at this point, it basically comes down to the physical damage, if any that was done to this girl. He compared it to several cases in the past where there was a he said/she said case. In Ben Toothlessraper's case, there was no phyical damage done to the accuser, so there was nothing to convict him upon. In Mike Tyson's case, there was physical damage, therefor he spent 10 years in prison.
Since this girl went to the emergency room and had the rape test done, there is going to be doctor/nurse accounts of any physical damage done to her. If she was beat up, or there are signs that the sex was forced upon her, Winston could be in trouble. If there are no signs that anything happened consentual sex then there would be nothing to convict him upon other than her "word"
