Winston hearing ends with no decision

No resolution after 2-day hearing to determine future of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.

A 2-DAY HEARING at Florida State that could determine quarterback Jameis Winston's future at the university ended yesterday with no decision and no definitive timetable on when the case will be resolved.

The hearing, which was held approximately 2 years after a female student said Winston sexually assaulted her in December 2012, was held to determine whether Winston violated any or all of four sections of the code of conduct - two for sexual misconduct and two for endangerment.

Justice Major Harding has given both sides up to 5 days to submit a proposed order on what they think the outcome should be, according to John Clune, an attorney representing the woman. Harding will use those briefs as the basis for his decision, which is supposed to come within 10 class days after the hearing ends., citing a source close to the case, reported that Winston did not testify at the hearing.

The website reported that Winston, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, made a statement, but didn't answer questions from Harding.
