Family of Jameis Winston accuser issues statement; Police warned accuser of pursuing case

As the alleged sexual assault case against Florida State Seminoles redshirt freshman QB Jameis Winston continues to develop, we’re treated to new information every single day.

Wednesday was no different, and this time the Tallahassee Police Department is the main target of this particular development.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, a Tallahassee detective told the accuser that Tallahassee is a “big football town” and that her life “could be made miserable” if she decided to pursue anything.

The statement was released through the family’s attorney and it’s the first time we’ve heard from anyone involved from that side since the allegations were first brought to public light by TMZ.

Here is an excerpt from the statement that was obtained by the Times:

“The family was shocked to hear that Winston’s attorney was not only aware of the case but had been told by Tallahassee Police Department that the case had been closed in February,” the family said. “All the while, the family was awaiting blood work results until early April.”

As more and more does come out, there’s a lot of question surrounding who was actually all involved in this unfortunate situation.
