The woman's family said in a statement this week that the woman did not initially know her assailant's identity and did not identify the alleged attacker as Winston until January.
Winston, 19, was a top freshman recruit and backup quarterback at the time of the alleged assault. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound redshirt freshman is now a Heisman Trophy candidate. No. 2 Florida State has maintained during the investigation that Winston's status has not changed and he is expected to start Saturday when the Seminoles host Idaho.
The Seminoles play the Florida Gators on Nov. 30 and will be in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on Dec. 7.
Tallahassee police handed over information to prosecutors last week about the 11-month-old case after two media organizations began requesting records associated with the incident.
The case has drawn national interest because of Winston's celebrity, but it has also raised questions about its handling by Tallahassee police.
The family and attorney of the alleged victim said Wednesday in a statement that their attorney, Patricia Carroll, was warned by police that Tallahassee was a "big football town and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable."
