Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is satisfied with the results of the State Attorney's investigation into an alleged sexual battery incident that did not lead to charges, Winston's attorney Tim Jansen said Thursday.
"He was very happy," Jansen said. "I can say he gave me a hug. It was not relief, because he knew he didn't do anything."

Jansen reiterated his stance that what occurred between Winston and a woman on Dec. 7, 2012 was consensual, and that two witnesses who were present submitted affidavits to State Attorney William Meggs that no assault occurred. "Unfortunately sometimes one night stands happen," Jansen said. "All I will say is he did nothing that was improper, he did nothing that was non-consensual."
Winston was not present at the Leon County Courthouse as Jansen met with reporters Thursday, but Jansen provided a written statement from Winston.
"I want to thank my family, friends, coaches and teammates for standing by me during a difficult time. I also want to thank the State Attorney's Office for examining all of the facts and reaching a decision in a conclusive manner. It's been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am. I'm very relieved I will be able to continue my education at Florida State and I'm excited I can now get back to helping our team achieve its goals."
Jansen said Winston took an exam at 1 p.m. Thursday and was at football practice at the time of Jansen's meeting with the media.

Jansen said he has discussed with Winston's family the possibility of legal action, in the form of a civil suit, in the wake of the investigation.
"We believed from day one in December that this was a consensual act," Jansen said. "We believed it in December, we believed it in February, and we believe it today. We have never wavered from that."
