Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, 19, who was accused by a fellow student of rape, will learn on Dec. 4, 2013 whether he will be charged with sexual battery in the case, according to USA Today.

On Dec. 7, 2012, a woman, 19, called the Florida State University Police Dept. around 3:30 a.m. saying she had been raped.

According to USA Today, DNA gathered at the time of the incident matched Winston’s, however, his attorney argues the sex between the woman and his client was consensual.

The woman’s attorney, Patricia Carroll, said in a statement her client was raped.

Chuck Hobbs, a former prosecutor who now works as a criminal defense lawyer, told Fox Sports it’s unlikely Winston will face charges, saying, “All my intuition tells me there won’t be charges filed.”

According to Fox Sports, the woman first told police that an “unknown assailant” had attacked her and did not identify Winston as the culprit until about five weeks later.

In the months that followed, Tallahassee police “shelved the case” because the woman was not cooperative, something her attorney disputed, Fox Sports notes.

Fox News reports that State Attorney Willie Meggs announced a news conference will be held on Thursday at 2 p.m. to reveal the results of the investigation in the case.
