Orlando Would Host Jameis Winston Trial

July 10th, 2015

JameisHow fitting that the Florida home of Mickey Mouse and fantasy, where legions of soccer-crazed lunatics run around in purple shirts screaming, “Kaka,” will play host to what might be the most important legal proceedings in Buccaneers history.

Yes, America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston, has that nasty civil suit hanging over his head from a former Florida State classmate who claims Jameis raped her in December 2012. No criminal charges were ever filed, and Jameis also was cleared by an independent former state supreme court justice as part of a school disciplinary hearing.

Jameis was trying to have the trial venue moved to Tallahassee, but a judge ruled yesterday that was unnecessary and the case would proceed in Orlando.

WESH-TV in Orlando has a good video of the attorneys for both sides talking outside the courthouse. Per the report, the lawyer for the accuser says 63 percent of potential jurors in Tallahassee claim to be Florida State fans and there were concerns for his client’s safety in that region.

Joe can’t wait for justice to prevail. Joe’s also wondering whether Lovie Smith, if subpoenaed, could be asked a few Josh McCown questions under oath.

    My goodness!!!…..using a Winston Orlando Trial article to raise Josh McCown from the dead file again…….there seems to be more than enough opportunities to trash McCown for his poor play without manufacturing them.

  3. Lol haha Says:

    Now this pos can be in prison where he belongs

  4. Mike10 Says:

    I doubt this will even got to trial…

    Coming from a big Winston skeptic, I really have been impressed with what the offseason has shown so far from Winston. Other than him looking a bit over weight, is it safe to say that this guy has done everything (so far) to prove he can be the leader and franchise QB of this team

  5. Mike10 Says:

    Ha! …. smh, that last sentence Joe

  6. Harry Says:

    My question for Lovie, under oath, would be “…did you issue a “code red” on the Bucs, so they would continue to loose, so you could draft Winston?” That would be the only explanation for the wacky decisions Lovie made last year, including, but not limited to, the Oline.

    I think we could handle the truth Harry

    LMAO! Nice one, Joe! Now to clean up the coffee spray…

  9. Tom Edrington Says:

    The Joe(s) should know that Lovie does not tell the truth….heck, he kept telling everyone that McClown gave the team the best chance to win…..

    Formality is no friend of mine and reality often blows my mind.

  11. Bill Says:

    Just some more cage rattling by the Colorado boys starting to run short on funds wanting the BUCS to do their research for them. If I am the Bucs I just ignore them. Nothing positive ever comes from acknowledging ambulance chasers with no case.

  12. WS99 Says:

    You’re a funny guy Joe.

  13. Fsuking Says:

    Lol haha- U clearly lack an
    understanding of how civil trials work lol haha

  14. DavidbigBucsFan Says:

    Wow lolhaha (must be because you’re a joke) you don’t even know the man and you call him a pos. Your anger has dulled your senses because this is a civil suit so he won’t go to jail. Unfortunately for Famous Jameis there will to many people on that jury who like you still live in the 40s & 50s. Anyone whi thinks he will win this case just remember OJ. Even though he was found innocent in a court of law the Browns still were able to bleed him dry. Look at Jsmeis and then his accuser. You don’t need a unanimous decision to win this

  15. BlogTalkFootball Says:

    Lovie didn’t specify what year he gave us the best chance to win. I think he meant this year.

  16. OAR Says:

    Unfortunately, 95% of head coaches lie, fib, delude, falsify, stretch the truth, etc. Nature of the beast.

  17. Garett Says:

    Joe, that last sentence about Lovie was wrong and rude and tasteless and…and you totally nailed it!

  18. Dreambig Says:

    For the first time I wonder if he should settle out of court. If he settles, the whole thing almost goes away, at least enough that his career continues uninterupted. If he goes to trial and looses, there would be much more disruption. Although the evidence against him is nothing more than she said he said, in a civil trial where burden of proof is much less, it just depends on who the jury believes. Its a bit scary. If he remotely did anything wrong, he should settle.

  19. Curtis Gatorboy Says:

    What a waste of a pick!!! This clown and his legal trouble. We just inherited all of that crap! Should have played it safe with mariotta! Lock jameis up!

  20. The Other Side of the Coin Says:

    Probably the best pick in Bucs history. We’ll have to wait a few years to know for sure. So far so good though. The civil suit is just a media event in any case. Winston is so sharp and experienced in answering the inevitable questions it won’t even be a wrinkle in his focus. He’ll be fine Gatorboy. Not so sure you will be. You’re bringing a lot of unnecessary pain on yourself just because you dislike the Noles. Time to get over it don’t you think?

  21. Lol haha Says:

    He’ll lose and pay dearly. Hopefully then she can move on knowing justice prevailed. 10 million?

  22. DavidbigBucsFan Says:

    Didn’t know prostitutes cost that much lolhaha. Well guess that puts her waaaay out of your price range. I guess after seeing her picture in some cut off shorts her price looks more like a pint of hooch and a brick of chewing tobaccie. Even that would be too pricey for you. I’m sure you ain’t her kind anymore no hows! HA HA LOL!!!!

  23. Buccfan37 Says:

    People lie under oath all the time, bring out the truth serum, that does exist, does’nt it?

  24. Pickgrin Says:

    Erica Kinsman has never had to face cross examination under oath. She’s not going to either for good reason. This will not make it into the courtroom.
