Florida State Seminoles’ quarterback Jameis Winston has had a season to remember. His team, if it wins out, will play for a national championship and he has a huge lead in the Heisman Trophy race.

TMZ is trying to connect Winston to a sexual assault case from December of 2012.

Although the school had acknowledged the investigation, they will not answer questions about any ongoing investigation per school policy.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, no charges have been filed against Winston and his attorney has denied the allegation.

The complaint was filed Dec. 7, 2012, according to TPD reports. The complainant is cooperating with the State Attorney’s Office, said Officer David Northway, spokesman for TPD.

“The case is open and active and the victim is working with the State Attorney’s Office,” Northway said.

Tallahassee attorney Tim Jansen confirmed he is representing Winston.

“This case has been going on for over a year. The case was basically closed and we’re not sure why it’s opened up,” Jansen said. “We’ve been cooperating with the law enforcement agencies and we’re hoping to get a quick resolution in favor of Mr. Winston.

Jansen said Winston has not been interviewed by police or prosecutors.

Winston and the Seminoles will host the Syracuse Orange Saturday.
