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 at 2 p.m. Thursday in his office to announce his findings.


Meggs says investigators have learned as much as they can about the December 2012 incident.


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


Meggs has said he wanted to make sure prosecutors completed a thorough investigation before making a final decision. He has also said several times that it's up to prosecutors to determine whether there is a "reasonable" chance of conviction.
