INNOCENT of all charges...
Must have sucked going through all that mess
Not technically, they just didn't have enough information (or so they say, a shady situation to say the least) to carry on with a case. Doesn't mean it can't be opened back up.
I don't believe anyone actually expected him to be charged.
well the evidence they had from the girl didn't match up...she acted like she was so drunk but the toxicology reports said differently. There was other things too. And people actually did believe he'd get charged...maybe you didn't.
There was a DNA sample that matched Winston taken from that night, too.
Thanks to gaps in the investigation, there is just enough doubt that his innocence or guilt will never truly be established in public imho.
The CCTV at Potbellys was recycled by the time the police got to it - hardly surprising given how late an investigation happened months later
The Phone that Casher taped some of the encounter on has been thrown away after he got a new one
The SA hasnt been able to track down the cab driver that took them from Potbellys to where w/ever happened happened.
The police didnt take many notes over the initial report. Not unusual in and of itself, but not a great help.
They actually found TWO different DNAs on her underwear. One was Winston's, the other belonged to another male not present and as yet unnamed.
The TPD checked her blood for tox levels, but not specifically for date rape drugs - which is odd as she says she had blackouts that night but hadnt drunk much.
On the one hand, the TPD look like the worst stereotypical hick cops you could imagine on the other you cant blame the SAO too much when what little evidence there was is thin and and dated vs the gulf of what mightve been presented. The Accuser's attorney has some incredibly valid grounds for criticism of the TPD imo.
As much as i like Jameis' potential, this has certainly cast a bit of a shadow over him for me. Hopefully the truth will come out - whichever way it goes - in time, but i doubt it now.
