Tweet Jameis Winston, Florida State’s star quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate, won’t face charges for sexual battery per an announcement from the state attorney’s office. Winston was under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that occurred in December of 2012, but the initial case against Winston was halted in February 2013. He again became a suspect after hype surrounding his Heisman campaign raised new interest in the case. Florida State currently ranks number one in the BCS standings and the undefeated Seminoles are set to face Duke in the ACC Championship game Saturday December 7th. On the season, Winston has completed 218 of 317 passes for 3,495 yards, with 35 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
