The Guy Who’s About to Win the Heisman Trophy is a Rapist

Jameis winston instagramSad truth: the 19-year-old frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy, college football’s greatest honor, is thought to have raped a woman last year. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston allegedly assaulted a classmate he met at a bar and later took to his apartment back in December of 2012.

The case was made “inactive” due to a lack of evidence and the victim’s unwillingness to file charges, but there has been a lot of talk about Tallahassee police purposefully not pursuing the case due to Winston’s celebrity status.

The woman’s attorney released a statement revealing that local law enforcement officials refused to even interview potential witnesses, made his client out to be a drunk to the media, and threatened her by saying “her life will be made miserable” because Tallahassee is a “big football town.”
