Jameis Winston's Attorney Trying to Get Disciplinary Hearing Delayed


It appears the tug-o-war over Florida State Quarterback Jameis Winston's student disciplinary hearing looks like it may get delayed yet again.

Winston's high-class attorney David Cornwell, fresh off publishing the name of Winston's accuser has officially filed to have the hearing delayed from it's November 17th date. Cornwell says he has not had enough time to effectively prepare both his and his clients case.

The agreed upon person to hear the case--former Florida Supreme Court Judge Major Harding will have final say in the matter, it's believed he will agree.

For those unaware--the hearing is based on accusations Winston sexually assaulted a now former FSU student in December of 2012. No, Winston has yet to be charged in the case, the district attorney declined to pursue charges and the hubbub began over who knew what and when.

We--and most others, believe Cornwell will never let the agreed upon hearing ever happen. He will be unable to speak for or with Winston during the hearing. And anything said can and quite possibly could be used to pursue charges or in a civil procedure.

Combine that with FSU hitting the homestretch of their schedule undefeated and a likely playoff participant....and you have a recipe for nothing happening here other than some posturing for the next couple of months.
