TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A former Florida State University student has filed a lawsuit against Jameis Winston, accusing the possible No. 1 NFL Draft pick of sexually assaulting her in 2012.

Erica Kinsman filed the lawsuit Thursday in Orange County.

Winston, a former Seminoles quarterback, is projected to be a top pick in the NFL draft April 30.

John Clune, a lawyer for Kinsman, said in a statement there are consequences for Winston’s behavior “and since others have refused to hold him accountable, our client will.”

Kinsman eventually left school after the investigation against Winston was reported. Winston was not charged in 2013 and was cleared by the university following a two-day student-conduct hearing.

The AP generally does not routinely identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault. However, Kinsman has told her story publicly in a documentary.

    Sue the crap out of him lady, and take everything he has and everything he might have. Put him on the street or in prison for life.
