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