FSU’s Win­ston vol­un­teered DNA sam­ple last week, lawyer says

The Washington Times Daily - - Sports -

TAL­LA­HAS­SEE, FLA. | Florida State quar­ter­back Jameis Win­ston vol­un­teered a DNA sam­ple last week to the Tal­la­has­see Po­lice Depart­ment as part of the sex­ual as­sault in­ves­ti­ga­tion, his at­tor­ney said Thurs­day, adding that he be­lieves Win­ston will be ex­on­er­ated and any DNA does not prove guilt.

Win­ston’s lawyer Tim Jansen said at a press con­fer­ence Thurs­day morn­ing that the sex be­tween his client and the ac­cuser “ab­so­lutely” was con­sen­sual, but then re­treated when pressed by re­porters who asked him to con­firm what he just said.

ESPN first re­ported Wed­nes­day night that Win­ston’s DNA matched a sam­ple taken from the un­der­wear of the ac­cuser. Jansen said he has not seen the re­sults of the DNA tests and found out watch­ing tele­vi­sion.
