Winston Lawyer Wants Decision Sooner Rather Than Later

Jameis Winston head shotThe lawyer for Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston met with the state attorney Wednesday, hoping to expedite the two-week timetable for a decision on whether charges would come from an investigation into accusations that the Heisman Trophy candidate sexually assaulted a woman.

Attorney Timothy Jansen said he was alarmed by the expected delay by Willie Meggs’ office and the impact the ongoing probe could have on Winston’s Heisman candidacy and the unbeaten Seminoles’ quest for a berth in the BCS title game.

“We expressed our concerns that the delay would affect Mr. Winston’s reputation, voters in the Heisman and Florida State’s ability to go to the national championship game,” Jansen said Wednesday. “We’re hoping this cloud can be lifted sooner rather than later.”
