Report Finds Flawed Investigation Of Top Football Player04:19

This article is more than 5 years old.

In 2012, a Florida State freshman reported that she had been raped by a stranger. Eventually, Jameis Winston, star quarterback of the FSU football team was identified as the suspect, but the local prosecutor decided there wasn't enough evidence to bring charges.

Winston would go on to win the Heisman Trophy and lead the Seminoles to the national championship.

However, a New York Times report published yesterday found flaws in the investigation. Slate's Mike Pesca joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss the case and the implications of the new findings.
