The allegations came in 2012 and Winston has refused to address them for the past two years. He did make the following statement:

“I did not rape or sexually assault [the accuser],” Winston said, according to the statement obtained by ESPN. “I did not create a hostile, intimidating or offensive environment in the short period of time that we were together. [The accuser] had the capacity to consent to having sex with me and she repeatedly did so by her conduct and her verbal expressions. I never used physical violence, threats, or other coercive means towards [the accuser]. Finally, I never endangered [the accuser’s] health, safety, or well-being.”
