ESPN is reporting that Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault. ESPN Radio's Jeff Cameron reported it first. [Update, 1:56 p.m.: Confirmed.]

Earlier today, the warrant from the Jameis Winston sexual assault investigation began circulating. The alleged rape happened last Dec. 7, according to the warrant. From the AP:

In the warrant, the alleged victim told police she and friends had five to six shots at Potbellys and her "memory is very broken from that point forward." She said she remembered being in a cab with a "non-descript" black man and going into an apartment where she was raped.

The alleged assault took place about a year ago. The woman didn't identify Winston, who is black, until about a month later.

The warrant said she tried to fight the man off, and at some point, another man came into the room and told him to stop. But the two went into a bathroom "where he completed the act."


According to the warrant, the accuser did not know exactly where they had sex, and she recalled that the suspect had dressed her afterward. According to the Tallahassee Democrat:

"Her next memory is the suspect dressing her then putting her on a black scooter," the affidavit for the search warrant said. "She told him where she lived and he dropped her off at the intersection of Call and Stadium. The victim has no idea where the incident occurred."


According to ESPN's Shelley Smith, toxicology reports show the accuser had "minuscule amounts of alcohol in her system." There was no evidence of any date-rape drugs, Smith reports.

The warrant is dated from mid-January, a little less than a week after the accuser had identified Winston as the suspect.

Update: Here's the entire collection of TPD documents, including lab work, accuser's and suspect's statements, and witness affidavits.
