Lawsuit against Winston refers to second victim
PFT has obtained, through NBC, a copy of the complaint filed Thursday against former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. The lawsuit contains a potentially ominous allegation that could, in theory, derail Winston’s bid to become the first overall pick in the draft.
“On October 25, 2013, Plaintiff’s victim advocate at FSU informed her that a second woman had come forward and reported being sexually assaulted by Winston,” the complaint alleges at paragraph 13.
If the Buccaneers are indeed going to select Winston, they likely will investigate the allegation of a second victim before putting him name on the card. It’s possibly they already have; it’s not publicly known whether the Bucs or any other NFL team are aware of the second allegation.
But the public now is, and until more is known about the second allegation, it could complicate Winston’s draft stock.
