Fitzgerald Cecilio – 4E Sports Reporter

Tallahassee, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Any criminal charge in connection with an alleged sexual battery against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston may come after the ACC football championship and Heisman Trophy voting deadline.

This, after the Florida State Attorney’s office told several media outlets that it needs two more weeks to complete investigation on the accusation.

Winston is expected to lead Florida State in the ACC Championship on Dec. 7 in Charlotte. Aside from this, he is a frontrunner for the Heisman trophy, which is awarded Dec. 14 in New York. Heisman votes are due Dec. 9.

Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman told CBSSports.com, the office is still awaiting some evidence regarding the allegation.

State Attorney William Meggs launched an investigation into the allegation Nov. 13 after media outlets requested to view the case file from the Tallahassee police.

The alleged incident involving Winston, a redshirt freshman football player, occurred on Dec. 7, 2012.

Despite the allegation, Florida State has said there is no change in Winston’s status with the team.

Florida State’s student-athlete code of conduct prohibits participation in competition when he or she is charged with a felony “absent extraordinary circumstances as determined by the administration”.
