TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The prosecutor overseeing the investigation of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston says it is completed.

State Attorney Willie Meggs has scheduled a news conference for this afternoon to announce his findings in the December 2012 incident.

A lawyer for Winston has suggested that the star quarterback and the accuser had consensual sex, but the victim’s family has accused the 19-year-old of rape.

Winston is a favorite for this year’s Heisman Trophy. Voting for that trophy ends on Monday.

FSU is the No. 1 team in the country and a favorite to go to the BCS National Championship.
