It is Jameis Winston’s legal right to not cooperate and he has an attorney probably telling him not to say anything. I wouldn’t speculate about what that means, but if you listen to the State Attorney, there is obviously something about the case that warrants a fresh investigation. William Meggs, state attorney for Florida’s 2nd judicial circuit, told USA TODAY Sports he does not expect Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston to cooperate with his office’s investigation into an alleged sexual assault on Dec. 7, 2012 that has resurfaced this week. Meggs, however, said he has assigned two investigators to the case and vowed they will “get to the bottom of it and do the right thing.” “Since it’s now been dumped in our laps, we’re going to make sure it is properly investigated,” Meggs said Friday morning at his office in downtown Tallahassee. “Whether it has been so far, I don’t know.” The degree of Winston’s alleged involvement, however, is difficult to ascertain since the police report released publicly on Wednesday was heavily redacted and included the physical description of a person six inches shorter than the 6-foot-4 quarterback. Meggs cautioned against speculating about the reason for that discrepancy. “I would say what y’all have doesn’t tell you anything,” he said. “You can’t compel him to talk,” Meggs said. “He has a right against self-incrimination, so I doubt very seriously we’re going to get a statement from Jameis Winston.” Two big questions are still just hanging out there. 1- Why was the original investigation never sent to State Attorney? 2- What is the extent of Jameis involvement in the sexual assault? Until we know that, we shouldn’t assume anything.
