The investigation into the sexual battery complaint against Jameis Winston in December 2012 stopped after the woman filing it ceased cooperating with police and decided not to press charges, according to an email from city manager Anita Favors Thompson.
From the Tallahassee Democrat:
In the email, Favors Thompson said the Tallahassee Police Department followed up on the case referred to it by Florida State University police “against FSU football player Jameis Winston” by a woman who indicated she was intoxicated at a local bar and was taken advantage of while impaired. TPD initiated an investigation and began to interview witnesses and compile details on the case, but stopped getting responses from the woman and could no longer contact her.
“Shortly thereafter a representative of the young woman’s family who is an attorney contacted TPD and said the young woman had changed her mind and did not wish to prosecute,” the email said.
The case was reactivated by “a new piece of information” from “someone integrally involved” according to the Tallahassee Police Dept..
