Report: FSU clears Ronald Darby in alleged rape case
Florida State cleared Ronald Darby of any code of conduct violations for his part in an alleged rape by quarterback Jameis Winston.
Florida State defensive back Ronald Darby was found not responsible by the school for two code of conduct violations stemming from a sexual encounter between Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and a former Florida State student who alleged Winston raped her.
According to the USA Today, Darby's lawyer, Tico Gimbel, the panel found Darby not responsible for "conduct of a sexual nature that creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment for another person" and "acts that invade privacy of another person." Fellow Seminole Chris Casher was investigated for the same violations, but his attorney, Adam Ellis, would not share what the decision involving Casher's case was. Instead Ellis would only say that "we're pleased with it" and that "Chris had a fair hearing."
Casher also faced a charge of "recording images without consent," as Casher told police he had recorded video of the encounter but that he later deleted the video.
Jameis Winston was not present at the hearing, which took place on May 20.
