Florida State to settle lawsuit with woman who accused quarterback Jameis Winston of rape

Florida State to settle lawsuit with woman who accused quarterback Jameis Winston of rape

Florida State University said Monday it's settling a lawsuit with a former student who said she was raped by former star quarterback Jameis Winston.

FSU will pay Erica Kinsman $250,000 and her attorneys $700,000, university President John Thrasher said in a news release. He said FSU is settling to avoid spending millions on the lawsuit.

Kinsman has said the university failed to respond to allegations that Winston sexually assaulted her; she has a separate lawsuit pending against Winston. The former student has said she was drunk at a Tallahassee bar in December 2012 when Winston and others took her to an apartment, where she says the quarterback raped her.
