Report: Decision on Jameis Winston likely to come following ACC Title Game


With the 2013 college football season coming to a close, so is the race for the Heisman Trophy. However, this year, there has been a bit of a wrench thrown into the voting process, as the voters anxiously await to see if the front runner among many, Florida State redshirt freshman QB Jameis Winston, will be charged in his alleged sexual assault case.

Well, they shouldn’t hold their breaths, because that decision might not come in time for them to make their final decision, according to a report from CBS Sports.

As early as last week, State Attorney Willie Meggs made note that a decision likely would not come before Thanksgiving, but many assumed that a final ruling wouldn’t be too far behind. But, assistant state attorney Georgia Cappelman told CBS that a decision could be two weeks away, or longer, which would be after Winston plays in the ACC Championship Game and the voting would be in:

“It’s mostly likely (after next week),” Cappleman said.

This will definitely be interesting to see play out, as Winston really hasn’t done anything on the field to negate his front runner stance, nor have a lot of others stepped up to take him over.

The “innocent until proven guilty” theory may be put to a serious test in this case.
