Lawyer: FSU QB Winston volunteered DNA to police
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The attorney for Florida State's Jameis Winston says the quarterback volunteered a DNA sample last week to the Tallahassee Police Department as part of the sexual assault investigation involving his client.
Tim Jansen said at a Thursday press conference that he is upset that the information was leaked and made public through the media. ESPN first reported Wednesday night that Winston's DNA matched a sample taken from the underwear of the accuser.
Jansen told reporters that he has not seen the results of the DNA tests and found out watching television.
Jansen says he's surprised the DNA results were leaked out by law enforcement but, "This DNA has no impact whatsoever on this case. The two eyewitnesses that were present will exonerate" Winston.
