Jameis Winston the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, is a red-shirt sophomore for the Seminoles that was accused of sexual assault, which was later dropped is in the news again for shoplifting… This is the most countriest (if that is even a word) ish I’ve read all year…
According to ESPN.com:
Florida State quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was issued a citation Tuesday for shoplifting crab legs from a Publix supermarket, SB Nation reported, citing multiple sources.
Jameis Winston will be suspended from Florida State’s baseball team as part of his punishment for shoplifting, according to a report.
“He got an adult civil citation,” a source told the website. “If he completes the sanctions it will never show up on his record.
“They commonly give them to juveniles on first criminal offenses. They are now doing it for minor misdemeanors for adults to lower crime rate.”
A source told SB Nation that Winston will be fined $30, required to do community service and suspended from FSU’s baseball team, with whom he’s 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in 16 appearances this spring. Winston was named to the preseason All-America third team as a utility player by Baseball America.
A 2 p.m. ET news conference in Leon County has been scheduled regarding the case.
