Winston's Attorney Says Sex Was Consensual

Now that ESPN reported late yesterday evening that Jameis Winston's DNA was found on the alleged victim's clothing, his lawyer has found the need to speak up for his client's innocence. 

Tim Jansen, Winston's mouthpiece, had more harsh words for those investigating this case. He feels like information is being pieced out the back door to the media.

That's because it is.

When asked by a reporter today if the sex between Winston and the accuser was consensual, Jensen's reply was succinct and predictable.


Jansen criticized the Tallahassee Police Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for what he contended was an illegal leak of the DNA analysis results to the media.

“I don’t think it’s a secret what the defense is when I tell you that we are not surprised his DNA was found,” Jansen said. “We anticipated it would be found. We never, ever said he wasn’t there.”

I believe Jansen when he said he believe someone is leaking this information to the media. What I don't believe is that he knew Winston's DNA would be found on the victim.

According to Jansen, Winston gave DNA samples to the police, and he has two witnesses to verify his innocence.

Here's my question: How can you have witnesses unless a) they watched or b) they participated. That's a slippery slope, not to mention a bit kinky.

In the latter instance, if those alleged witnesses participated with Winston and this woman, then where is their DNA?

Not to say that Winston did or didn't assault the alleged victim, but as Stephen A Smith said on ESPN this morning, "It doesn't look good."

It's easy to jump to conclusions with all the evidence that is coming out against Winston. Perhaps this is State Attorney Willie Meggs' way of backing up his irresponsible assertion that "interesting progress" was being made in the case, a phrase more fitting for a carney than an officer of the court.

What with die-hard football fans for cops and shills for attorneys, there's more than enough sleaze to go around here, and that's before we even consider the case at the heart of it all.
