Prosecutor to announce investigation results on Jameis Winston case on Thursday

By Kyle Johnson,

State Attorney Willie Meggs announced that investigation into Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston had been concluded and that the results would be revealed on Thursday.

Instead of revealing the findings into the sexual assault case against the quarterback, people will have to wait until Thursday to find out during a press conference. According to Fox Sports Florida, Tim Jansen, Winston's attorney, said he would have a press conference of his very own after.

Asst. State Attorney Georgia Cappelman said in an email, "There will be an announcement at 2 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday) regarding Jameis Winston. The announcement will be made at the Office of the State Attorney in Tallahassee."

The Tallahassee Democrat reports that Meggs' announcement will mark the end of a three-week investigation into claims that Winston raped a 19-year-old woman.

The case had been slow moving one after the woman initially reported the case back in December 2012. She didn't name Winston as her attacker until in January. Initially she declined to press chargers, though her family denies that. A detective also told the woman that her life would be "miserable" as Tallahassee is "a big football town."

Investigators linked Winston's DNA provided voluntarily to the case and the quarterback's attorney claimed that was merely because the sex was consensual.
