In his first publicly available comments about the police investigation of a rape accusation against former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, Tallahassee police officer Scott Angulo says there were missteps in the case.
Angulo was deposed Oct. 22 in connection with a federal Title IX lawsuit Erica Kinsman filed against Florida State University. She has alleged that the school’s response to her alleged assault was deliberately indifferent and denied her of educational opportunities protected under the law.
In the 199-page deposition, released to USA TODAY Sports on Friday, Angulo noted there were investigative shortcomings but says at the time of the investigation in early 2013 that he did not know who Winston was or his status as a prized recruit for the Seminoles.
