State Attorney Willie Meggs says there are still "four or five" things that still need to be done in the sexual assault case before a final decision is made on whether charges should be made against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.

Meggs said Friday that while prosecutors have interviewed the alleged victim that they have not wrapped up their investigation. Meggs did not provide any details of the interview with the woman.

ESPN reported earlier this week that Winston's DNA matched a sample taken from the underwear of the accuser.

Timothy Jansen, Winston's attorney, says his client voluntarily gave the sample last week but that a match does not mean his client raped the woman. He told reporters any sex was consensual before somewhat backtracking when pressed about his comment.
