Florida State’s Fisher relieved after Jameis Winston ruling

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher says there’s a sense of relief after quarterback Jameis Winston was cleared of any student code of conduct violations.

A two-day hearing was held this month to determine whether the 2013 Heisman winner violated sections of the conduct code- two for sexual misconduct, two for endangerment.

Former Florida Supreme Court Justice Major Harding ruled the evidence was “insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof.” Prosecutor Willie Meggs made a similar decision a year ago when he decided not to criminally charge Winston, citing lack of evidence.

Fisher said Monday: “I felt very happy for him and his family and the people involved with him. We’ve dealt with it in our own ways, but it is a relief. Especially for him.”
