before, and I had not drank nearly enough to become drunk and incompetent that night. I remember being in a cab and there was three guys in the cab also. Anyone you ask would tell you, like I never would go with a guy, period, and especially not three people that I didn’t know. I remember specific things after that. I was in, like, an apartment, and this guy was… sexually assaulting me. He was raping me. He was on top of me, and I could not really breathe that much, but I was saying, “Please Stop. Stop.” Like, I remember his roommate or whoever this other guy was, came in and he was saying, “Dude, stop. Like, what are you doing?” “She’s telling you to stop.” Since his door to the bedroom wouldn’t lock, he picked me up and he carried me into the bathroom. He said, “The door will lock in here.” He put me on the tile bathroom floor. I was trying to, like, push him off and kick him off, but he was just too big. And I said, “Please Stop” multiple times, and I said “no”. Eventually he pushed his hand over my face and, like, pushed my face into the floor. And he continued to rape me. He finished and then he put my clothes back on and he said,

“You can leave now.” And then he’s like, “I’ll take you home on my scooter.” I mean, Okay. I had no idea where I was. I didn’t know how else I was supposed to get home. I wanted to get out of there. This was the worst feeling because I didn’t wanna hold onto him, you know? But I was afraid that I was gonna fall off of the scooter. He dropped me off at the intersection where I told him because I didn’t want him to know where I lived. I didn’t know really what I was supposed to do (Hunting Ground, 2015). Kinsman decided to report the case to the Tallahassee police (Bogdanich, 2014). While reporting the incident and getting a rape kit done, evidence indicated that Jameis Winston’s semen was on her underwear and that bruises started forming (Bogdanich, 2014). The rapist would be later identified by Kinsman as Jameis Winston (Bogdanich, 2014). Scott Angulo, the officer for this investigation and who is a diehard Florida Seminoles football fan, did not look at the videos of Potbelly’s or went into further detail to find out who the cab driver was (Bogdanich, 2014). William Meggs, the prosecutor for the case, states, “The case was not properly investigated from the start and I mean there were so many things that needed to be done that did not get done. I am convinced that we could have identified the cab driver that night. I am also convinced that if done properly, we would have had a video from Potbelly’s. You go back and ask for it 11 months later, it has been taped over. You don’t have that (Bogdanich, 2014). When the allegations were under way, Winston remained playing football, won the Heisman Trophy (the biggest award for quarterbacks), and would help the Florida State to a national championship (Bogdanich, 2014). The case was not convicted correctly, and Jameis Winston walked away with no charges and was able to get a #1 draft pick spot in the National Football League (NFL) to play for Washington Redskins (Bogdanich, 2014).
