Florida State's Fisher relieved after Winston ruling

The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher says there's a sense of relief after quarterback Jameis Winston was cleared of any student code of conduct violations.

A two-day hearing was held this month to determine whether the 2013 Heisman winner violated sections of the conduct code two for sexual misconduct, two for endangerment.

Former Florida Supreme Court Justice Major Harding ruled the evidence was "insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof." Prosecutor Willie Meggs made a similar decision a year ago when he decided not to criminally charge Winston, citing lack of evidence.

Fisher said Monday: "I felt very happy for him and his family and the people involved with him. We've dealt with it in our own ways, but it is a relief. Especially for him."
