FSU under investigation for handling of Winston case


TALLAHASSE, Fla. - Florida State University is being investigated for its handling of the Jameis Winston case.

The U.S Department of Education Office for Civil Rights is looking into whether the school violated Title-9 laws after an FSU student claimed Winston raped her in December 2012.

Prosecutors didn't charge Winston.

The DOE will investigate whether a significant delay in conducting the investigation, and a meeting with only Winston, violated the rules given to public schools.

If found guilty, FSU could lose public funding.
