A former state judge has ruled Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston did not violate the school's code of conduct saying there wasn't enough evidence to find him guilty of wrongdoing in a 2012 sexual assault case.
In a statement obtained by USA Today, former Florida Supreme Court Judge Major Harding said, "This was a complex case, and I worked hard to make sure both parties had a full and fair opportunity to present information. In sum, the preponderance of the evidence has not shown that you are responsible for any of the charge violations of the Code. Namely, I find that the evidence before me is insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof."
