 width=Florida State University is following through on a required investigation into Heisman-winning quarterback Jameis [[ JAME-iss ]] Winston. The "Tampa Bay Times" reports FSU has restarted its Title Nine investigation into the rape allegations of Winston from nearly 21 months ago. The law states schools must investigate alleged sex crimes, whether law enforcement investigates them or not. The school interviewed Winston's female accuser in August, and asked for a detailed account of the allegations. The accuser's attorney, John Clune, expects code of conduct charges to be brought against Winston. If found to be in violation of FSU's code of conduct, Winston could face anywhere from expulsion from school to probation or a verbal reprimand. The university has not made any indication that will happen.

Last December, a Tallahassee prosecutor said they lacked evidence from the 2012 incident to charge Winston, who went on to win the Heisman Trophy and lead his team to the national championship in January.
