Prosecutors received Winston case on Tuesday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- An assistant state attorney says prosecutors in Tallahassee did not receive information about sexual assault allegations involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston until Tuesday.
Tallahassee police investigated Winston in connection with a sexual assault that was reported nearly a year ago in an off-campus apartment. FSU records show the first report was made to campus police on Dec. 7 by a student at a dormitory. The investigation was handed over to Tallahassee police.
The case was not given to prosecutors until this week.
Assistant State Attorney Georgia Cappleman says procedure for criminal cases in Leon County is for police to give information to prosecutors if there is evidence for an arrest, or if it is a "close call." She says police do not tell prosecutors when they have decided against pursuing an arrest.
