TMZ Sports is reporting that Florida State has a reached huge settlement with Erica Kinsman, the former student who accused the Heisman Trophy and Bucs star quarterback of rape.
Florida State has reached a settlement with the woman who claimed she was raped by Jameis Winston in 2012 … shelling out nearly $1 million to make her lawsuit go away.
The accuser’s lawyers announced the terms of the settlement Monday — saying the cash figure includes attorney’s fees. FSU also agreed to make a 5-year commitment to training programs.
Kinsman sued the university, claiming the investigation into her rape was bumbled in an attempt to keep Winston on the football team.
Kinsman issued a statement about the settlement saying, “I will always be disappointed that I had to leave the school I dreamed of attending since I was little. I am happy that FSU has committed to continue making changes in order to ensure a safer environment for all students.”
Kinsman will receive $250,000 while her attorney’s will pocket the other $750,000.
