Patricia Carroll, the attorney for the woman who accused Jameis Winston of rape,
talks to the media at Zephyr Park in Zephyrhills on Friday morning.
Once again I do not know what happened that night a little over a year ago. So I cannot tell you which is the guilty party. I am not a judge, this is the whole point to this case between a quarterback of a university and a young girl. Only the judge of a case, the jury of an accused and their god have a right to judge? This did not happen in this state of a free country, but just who is the free? The attorney for a woman who accused Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston of raping her last year said Friday that her client was victimized by a shoddy investigation from the Tallahassee Police Department and a hasty conclusion to the case from the State Attorney’s office. Dade City-based lawyer Patricia Carroll called for Attorney General Pam Bondi to conduct an independent probe into the case and Tallahassee police operations. Thirteen days after the case was forwarded to his office, on Dec. 5, State Attorney Willie Meggs announced that Winston would not be charged and that the case was closed. Meggs said he didn’t think there was enough evidence to win a conviction, partially because so much time had passed since the incident occurred.
