Florida State says it’s settling a lawsuit with a woman who said she was raped by former star quarterback Jameis Winston.
FSU President John Thrasher announced terms Monday. Thrasher says FSU will pay Erica Kinsman $250,000 and her attorneys $700,000.
Thrasher says the university is settling to avoid spending millions on the lawsuit.READ MORE: Broward School Board Votes 5-3 To Remove Mask Requirement At High Schools
Kinsman says the university failed to respond to allegations that Winston sexually assaulted Kinsman. She has a separate lawsuit pending against Winston.
Winston, now starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, denied Kinsman’s allegation. FSU cleared him of wrongdoing.
A prosecutor didn’t press criminal charges, saying there were gaps in Kinsman’s story and insufficient evidence for a conviction.
The Associated Press doesn’t routinely identify people who say they’re sexual assault victims. However, Kinsman told her story publicly in a documentary and filed lawsuits.MORE NEWS: Large Crime Scene In Brownsville After Man Found Shot
