TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A DNA analysis completed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Tuesday confirmed that DNA provided by Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston matched the sample taken from the underwear of the woman who has accused him of sexual battery.
According to the DNA analysis report, a copy of which was viewed by ESPN.com on Wednesday, the Florida state crime lab determined the chance of the DNA in the woman’s underwear being a match for someone other than Winston was one in 2.2 trillion.
Police obtained a sexual assault kit on Dec. 7, 2012, when the accuser reported the alleged incident had occurred at an off-campus apartment. Winston’s DNA was recently obtained through a buccal swab he provided to authorities investigating the case.
So what? I mean to my knowledge Jameis isn’t denying hooking up with this girl? He’s not saying he didn’t go home with her? Just seems like everyone is jumping up and down like DNA on the panties is some sort of big revelation when the question isn’t whether they had sex or not, it’s whether it was consensual. And right now that’s something only Jameis and his accuser know. Just feel like there’s all these reports every day and everyone jumping to conclusions without a single hard fact being out there. Commenter summed it up best. If he did it he should go to jail. If he didn’t do it the accuser should go to jail. Simple as that. Just got to let the facts play out.
PS – Probably Barstool Nick’s best contribution to the Stool yet.
