    A civil suit is the best recourse now.
    It's why we have the civil justice system.

    Do you think the civil suit proceedings can be held outside Tallahassee?

    I don't think that there is anyway in the world that she will get a fair trial there. If Hitler was the starting QB for FSU and they were undefeated, he would never be found guilty in Tally of any crime.

    They would claim Hitler was the victim, and that the massacre of 6 million Jews was in self defense.
    They would also say that he should file a charge against the entire Jewish population for defamation of character.

    If a claim is brought in Federal Court under a civil rights or VAWA theory, the jury pool will extend far beyond Leon County.

    TPD needs to be investigated and the state authorities appear to have no interest in doing that. Does DOJ or any other Fed agency have jurisdiction to investigate a local police dept in a case like this?

    Yes, but the individual has civil actions available under 1983.

    Care to venture a guess as to the % chance that they would even get to a trial with the TPD or SAO on violations of her Federal civil rights (1983)?

    That really sucks. Because they'll say she only did it for money, which they already say. BBut it's the only recourse they've given her. By now, were I her I'd be seething and crushed that he has given a free pass. I'd do it for some kind of justice.

    Can someone on the legal side tell me why Meggs did not turn this over to a grand jury? He would have avoided all the criticism over his F$U connections. The SA guides the grand jury, and 99% of the time they do what the SA wants anyway.

    My guess is a grand jury might not make the decision in time for the Heisman vote. And that is a crime. Not a legal one, but a moral one.

    It is absolutely amazing to me to listen to their fans reveling in the fact that their rapist QB is the Heisman Trophy winner.

    They have rationalized and reasoned away every sense of common sense and morality in this matter, convincing themselves that this rape victim was "a 'ho who had it comin'" so they could enjoy their undefeated season, ACC Title, and Heisman QB without any guilt.

    And many of you here wonder why we Gators up here in enemy terrirtory utterly despise the average fsu fan in general... THIS is why. With fsu fans, it's all about "winning at any cost".

    They will say that and many of them will feel vindicated in their half-assed theories about what happened that night.

    She could also go public to get her story out for justice, revenge, public service.... And they will say "money".

    Most reasonable people would understand just like I believe most people understand that the successful civil suits against OJ were about justice, not money.

    I understand FSU fans being blind about this. I just hope she doesn't quit and wish her the best.

    Meggs, the FSU fan-boy, was afraid that despite his best efforts a grand jury might vote to prosecute.
