    ^^^

    What they've said above. If they are going to charge him and put him under arrest, his lawyers will be made aware of it, and likely it will be taken care of this morning, prior to the news conference. That nothing has been leaked as of 9:30 est that Winston is going to be charged, my guess is that the prosecuter will decide he doesn't have enough evidence to move forward and considers the case closed pending any future developments.

    They won't announce at 2:00 that they are going to press charges, then hire Dog the Bounty Hunter to track Winston down. If we don't hear rumors soon, I'd be shocked if he was charged with anything @ 2:00.

    Apparently they met at a bar , had some shots, and he dropped her off on a scooter.

    Heard on the radio on my lunch break that the FSU team, including Winston, was in flight to Charlotte for the ACC championship game. I think that pretty much guarantees nothing is going to happen. I just hope the media is going to be allowed to ask questions at the presser. That police department has a lot to answer to.

    If the prosecutor's office wasn't trying to be as transparent as possible, they could have simply penned a press release.

    I have a feeling this will be like the Ben Roethlisberger presser. Winston will be condemned but the state's attorney's office will not have enough evidence to prosecute.

    Where there will always be some that blame him no matter what, I expect this to be the opposite, that most reasonable people will come to the conclusion that he is innocent.

    Re: Things Getting Ugly in Tallahassee

    If there was not evidence of an assault, I will be happy if that is indeed the truth. I hope the truth, whatever that was, was found. I hope it was just unfounded charges by the other party for whatever reason, if that is what the truth is. If she was assaulted and the truth was not found in the evidence, for whatever reason, it's too bad that he did not admit he was guilty.

    Guess we'll see where its going here in 15 minutes.

    That was a very uncomfortable press conference with all the jokes and laughing. I know where my daughter will not be going even though her mom spent three years there.

    Re: Things Getting Ugly in Tallahassee

    famous jamis is no longer infamous???

    No matter the truth, either Jamis' name has been dragged thru the mud for no legall wrong doing on his end (morally is perhaps another question) or the accuser's life has likely been made a living hell while the other guy got off.

    In the end, there are no winners here, I just hope the decision to not press charges is the correct decision, I doubt we'll ever know for sure. I'm glad a decesion was made prior to this weekend though. Would certainly be a shame for him to be charged and declared inelgible after the ACC championship game and prior to their bowl game.

    Assuming Jamis goes on to win the Heisman now and get a spot in the national title game, gonna be interesting how it affects his "banquet table" month before the bowl game. Typically Heisman winners struggle in their bowl games partially due to all of the travel and banquets they have to attend.

    I think most reasonable people won't conclude guilt or innocence, just as the State Attorney's office didn't. Willie Meggs clearly stated that they didn't charge Winston because they didn't feel they had enough evidence for a conviction. So, now that we know that, it would be silly for any reasonable person to conclude innocence or guilt.

    What I don't get is, how the police chief can stand in the background smiling and laughing throughout this press conference. Regardless of the outcome, you'd think there'd be a little more professionalism. But then again, considering how the PD handled this from the beginning, I shouldn't be surprised at the joviality being displayed now.

    Yea, it sure does show disrespect to the accuser, who has maintained that it was an assault. Not a good time for snicker, snicker, wink, wink.

    One thing we know from the presser that I didn't know before hand was that there was more than 1 male's DNA in the garments tested.

    Re: Things Getting Ugly in Tallahassee

    I have no dog in this fight, I just think the whole thing is a shame. Only Jameis Winston knows what really happened, and I suppose it comes down to whether you want to believe he acted appropriately or not. I really don't know but either way, it is something that will stay with him and the girl for the rest of their lives, all because of one night.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    We know a couple other things...One is that she was intoxicated and it did hurt her case

    This is how:


    In the warrants released Thursday, the woman said she had five to six shots at a Tallahassee bar and that her memory was ďbroken from that point forward"...Meggs said that the accuser's lack of memory was problematic in the case. "She can't remember some of the things," he said.
