Prosecutors confirm they've interviewed the alleged victim in the sexual assault case involving FSU quarterback Jameis Winston but they say more questions remain before a decision is made on whether to prosecute.

"We are waiting on a couple of things that we have no control over and I don't know if we'll get those things before Thanksgiving or not," said State Attorney Willie Meggs.
On Thursday, Winston’s attorney called for an investigation into the original leaking of an unredacted police report and DNA results linking his client to the alleged victim.
"This is highly improper," said Tim Jansen.
The department of law enforcement says that they sent the DNA report over secured lines to two places, here to the Tallahassee Police Department and to the State Attorney's office.
State Attorney Willie Meggs says there will be plenty of time to investigate the leaks, which he says poses no threat to the outcome of the investigation.
"Certainly think that somebody has pretty much the initial report that probably should not have it. [Should this be investigated at a later date?] Well that would be something that internally the police department needs to address," said Meggs.
Fans arriving for what will be FSU’s last home game of the year came with questions that may not have answers.
"The big question that I got is why now, if it happened so long ago?" said Jackie Redfield.
FSU’s plays its last regular game of the season against arch rival Florida in Gainesville on November 30th.
