Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not face criminal charges for the alleged sexual assault of an unnamed college classmate.

At a Thursday afternoon press conference in Tallahassee, State Attorney Williams Meggs announced that prosecutors would not pursue a case against Winston, citing a lack of evidence. According to Meggs, prosecutors did not believe that they could have gotten a conviction based on the evidence that they were able to obtain.

“No charges will be filed against anyone in this case,” he told reporters. Meggs noted that there were “several people in the room” at the time that the sexual assault was alleged to have taken place. In addition, authorities discovered a second man’s DNA during the course of their investigation, which suggests that Winston’s accuser had sex with another man shortly before or after her encounter with the college athlete, TMZ noted.

The accuser admitted that she had a boyfriend at the time of her sexual encounter with Winston, but refused to reveal his identity. Meggs noted that the second man's DNA was found on the accuser's shorts, while Winston's DNA was found on her underwear.

Meggs also lamented the fact that his office was not called upon to investigate the Dec. 7, 2012, incident until November 2013. “It sure would have been nice to know all the things we know now back in December,” he said during the press conference.

The state attorney also rejected the notion that his office rushed to release its findings prior to the upcoming vote for the Heisman Trophy, for which Winston is a top candidate. “When are they doing that?” Meggs said, drawing laughs from reporters.

Meggs stated his belief that local police hadn’t treated the case differently because of Winston’s fame. “I do not believe so. Sometimes people hear what they want to hear,” he said.

Winston would have faced a felony sexual assault charge if Meggs’ office had decided to pursue a criminal case.
