Twitter@holidayhqteam Another day, another new twist in the Jameis Winston sexual assault case. Winston, a Heisman Trophy candidate at quarterback for the No. 2 ranked Florida State Seminoles, is currently being investigated for an alleged sexual assault said to have occurred in Tallahassee back in December of 2012. Until now, we hadn’t heard from the complainant or her family. The Tampa Bay Times was able to obtain an exclusive statement, however, that alleges that police may have warned her against pressing charges. A Tallahassee detective told an accuser’s attorney that Tallahassee is a “big football town” and her client’s life could “be made miserable” if she pursued a sexual assault case against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, according to an exclusive statement released by the family to the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday. The full statement, which you can read here, also alleges that Detective Scott Angulo “refused” to collect Winston’s DNA sample. The family also said that Angulo refused to collect Winston’s DNA or interview his roommate, a possible witness in the case, because doing so would alert Winston and allow the case to go public. Needless to say, this is getting ugly. The victim’s family is basically alleging that the police were helping cover up a potential crime. At this point, there are still too many unanswered questions to figure out the truth in the situation, but you can be sure it’s all going to come out eventually.
