Jameis Winston decision unlikely until after next week

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Jameis Winston will probably have to wait two more weeks for a decision, the State Attorney told CBS Tuesday.

The State Attorney's Office probably needs the next two weeks or longer before deciding whether to bring charges against the Florida State quarterback, assistant state attorney of the Second Judicial Circuit Georgia Cappleman told CBSSports.com on Tuesday.

"It's mostly likely (after next week)," Cappleman said.

The state attorney is waiting on evidence that hasn't yet arrived, said Cappleman, who declined comment on specifics of the investigation.

What sort of evidence is this? Could they be waiting on electronic records? As we recently discussed, records from social media or cellular companies can indeed take quite a while to obtain.

I do find it fairly annoying that Meggs has now pushed back his timeline to file charges several times. Is Meggs now saying this so that he has to stop giving updates, and so that it can look like that he moved as quickly as possible if he indeed wraps this up before Christmas?
