Florida State University (FSU) officials have postponed a student conduct code hearing for reigning Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston until Dec. 1, according to reports.
The request for the later date was made by Winston’s attorney David Cornwell, who claimed he did not receive an acceptable timetable in which to review the evidence, ESPN reported.
On Dec. 7, 2012, a woman told police she was out drinking with friends before ending up at an apartment where she claimed Winston raped her. A police investigation concluded in December 2013 without charges being filed against Winston.
Winston faces as many as four potential student conduct code violations for his activities over the past few years, including two related to sexual misconduct.
Former Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Major Harding (ret.) will hear the case and determine whether Winston violated FSU’s student conduct code. Winston faces a wide range of potential punishments, from a written or verbal reprimand to expulsion from the school, according to ESPN.
