(AP) The lawyer for Florida State's Jameis Winston is critical of the public comments made by State Attorney Willie Meggs about the ongoing sexual assault investigation of the Seminoles' quarterback and how the prosecutor has handled the probe.


Tim Jansen released a statement Sunday expressing concerns that Meggs has made "extrajudicial statements" about the investigation during media interviews. Jansen accused Meggs of addressing a confidential law enforcement investigation and inferring that witnesses have been affected by "attorneys and collusion."


Meggs told the Associated Press on Saturday that his focus included the alleged victim, who has moved from Florida and Meggs would like to interview. The incident was reported Dec. 7, 2012.


Jansen's statement requested Meggs remain objective, come to a quick resolution and "refrain from further extrajudicial public comment."
