Prosecutor: Winston investigation is 'thorough'

Posted: Updated:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The prosecutor investigating sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston wants the process to be "thorough" and won't let football dictate when he will wrap up his inquiry.

State Attorney Willie Meggs on Monday reiterated he won't let FSU's football schedule or Winston's Heisman Trophy possibilities determine when his investigation will be finished.

Winston has led the Seminoles to the No. 1 ranking and they will play for a conference title Saturday, with a shot at the national crown. The quarterback is also the leading candidate for the Heisman and many voters are waiting to see if Winston will be charged with a crime before casting their ballots.

Timothy Jansen, Winston's attorney, said Monday he is communicating daily with his client, who "wants it to be over."
