Jameis Winston Sued Over Sexual Assault Allegation

Erica Kinsman, who accuses Jameis Winston of raping her in 2012, has followed up her Title IX lawsuit against FSU with a lawsuit against Winston himself—reportedly accusing the Heisman-winning quarterback of sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment and “intentional infliction of emotional distress arising out of forcible rape.”

Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports Kinsman filed the lawsuit today in Florida’s Orange County, seeking damages in excess of $15,000. The Buccaneers are expected to take Winston as the first overall pick in next week's draft; the team told the Times that this lawsuit won't affect their draft strategy.
