@  Bearcat Bob : (25 June 2016 - 02:46 PM) UVA just hired Tim Taylor as an assistant coach on the Women's Basketball team. This will be his 3rd stint there. Not really a big deal until you factor in that he almost guarantees that Samantha Brunelle will be at UVA in a few years. She is a rising sophomore in HS; on the U18 National Team; #1 ranked in her class; has worked with Taylor since she started dribbling a ball.
@  UVAObserver : (24 June 2016 - 11:55 PM) I just read the most epic court transcript in the history of jurisprudence. It is extremely vulgar, and thereby extremely hilarious. I will not post the link, but a Google search of "Denver Fenton Allen" will lead you there.
@  sixcat : (23 June 2016 - 04:44 PM) I have to agree with UVAO. I have been to games in both places in recent years. Oxford is beautiful, unique and one hell of an experience.
@  UVAObserver : (23 June 2016 - 01:14 PM) It's not awful, but it's sure as Hell not Oxford.
@  GMan : (22 June 2016 - 10:39 PM) Not late, just wanted to remind everyone...
@  Ryan4VT : (22 June 2016 - 09:59 PM) We didn't write the article. We just voted. Don't be sour that Blacksburg is a beautiful city. :)
@  UVAObserver : (22 June 2016 - 07:42 PM) What Hokie shill drafted that article? Blacksburg over Oxford?!
@  Ryan4VT : (22 June 2016 - 06:15 PM) You're only two months late ;)
@  GMan : (22 June 2016 - 06:09 PM) BOOM... http://gardenandgun....e-towns-bracket
@  sixcat : (22 June 2016 - 05:07 PM) I agree, Ryan, the US Team aren't as bad as they appeared last night but, in order to get to where they need to be, we can't coddle them. We don't coddle Manning, Brady or Labron.
@  sixcat : (22 June 2016 - 05:05 PM) I agree with GMan, they were scared. Dempsey all but disappeared, Bradley looked pathetic, and Birnbaum had no business on the field.
@  sixcat : (22 June 2016 - 05:03 PM) A friendly is a far cry from the grand stage of a major tournament. Nowhere near as many eyeballs on a friendly.
@  Ryan4VT : (22 June 2016 - 01:54 PM) We were absolutely scared last night though.
@  Ryan4VT : (22 June 2016 - 01:54 PM) Not true. When Germany was number 1 last year we beat them in a friendly when both sides weren't at full strength, but we didn't look scared.
@  GMan : (22 June 2016 - 01:52 PM) The US played scared like they always do when they play a top team.
@  Ryan4VT : (22 June 2016 - 01:52 PM) Yep. They are the number one team in the world for a reason. And while I think our ranking of 31 is a little low, the gap is still clear.
@  sixcat : (22 June 2016 - 12:12 PM) Difference in technical skill was evident immediately! The US has come a long way in soccer, but have a long way still to go.
@  Ryan4VT : (22 June 2016 - 12:37 AM) I'm so pumped for this Copa semi. We have the worlds eyes with a chance to pull probably the biggest upset in American Soccer history.
@  sixcat : (21 June 2016 - 11:08 AM) The USGA, the gift that keeps on punishing!
@  Beamerball : (16 June 2016 - 12:59 AM) G, I seen a dew point reading of 80 over in KY today, that's pretty impressive, we've been around 70 all day here

What do you guys think about this mess? I think it will go to court since they now have proof of DNA in the accuser's underwear.

Question for UVAObserver- How tough will it be to prove consensual vs. nonconsensual sex in this case?

It's going to be awfully tough for the alleged victim in this matter. 

 

(1) The alleged victim's roommate has submitted an Affidavit that is very much supportive of Winston. 

(2) Facebook/Twitter shows a relationship that was established before the incident and continued on good terms well after.

(3) The alleged victim's statements do not stack up favorably when contrasted with that timeline.

(4) There's a significant lack of medical evidence within 72 hours following the incident.

(5) The alleged victim has tried to downplay the event in the few months preceding the public leak.

 

Frankly, with the evidence we know now, it looks like a case where both were likely drunk, and a case where remorse =/ rape.


I'm either right, or there's a perfectly logical explanation why I was wrong.

IMHO, this one is all about the civil suit to come.

I think your last statement is probably true on both of them being drunk and then the remorse showed up the next morning.
Trial or no trial, this will cost the kid a lot. Jamies reputation and his decision making will be questioned. A possible Heisman, endorsements and maybe even slipping in the draft. I watched a little of First Take today and they had Robert Smith on as a guest, he said as a Heisman voter, that he would not vote for Jamies.

I believe that the damage to Winston's reputation has already been done, very true. I think Winston would counter-sue for defamation if there's any civil suit coming against him.

UVAObserver, what do you make of this lengthy period of time the DA is exercising in their decision to charge Winston?  Is this good or bad for Winston in your experience?

I don't make particularly much of the timing. I know the media's in "of course it comes out now" mode. Residing in this world, I can tell you that I represent clients with offenses dating back a considerable length of time (had one going back to 1994, I kid you not). The statutes of limitations on criminal offenses are almost excessively lengthy, but they are so to give the Commonwealth/State adequate time to build cases in often delicate matters.

I'm inclined to believe the prosecution. The timing is just unfortunate.

The DA knows of Winston's notoriety. He's going to make sure every protocol is followed to the T. There's millions of dollars riding on it if there isn't.
