Attorney for Jameis Winston's accuser responds to Hunting Ground controversy



An attorney for Jameis Winston's accuser has responded to the latest development in the ongoing legal feud.

On Friday, one of Winston's attorneys threatened legal action against CNN if it airs The Hunting Ground, a film on campus rape that includes the Winston case. 

A day later, John Clune - an attorney for Winston's accuser, Zephyrhills' Erica Kinsman, issued the following statement: 

"Mr. Winston is apparently in the midst of another PR battle this week due to the release of The Hunting Ground on Sunday. When your lawyers' letters written on Friday are somehow getting printed in the media on Saturday, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what's going on. His latest attack is an attempt to revive his lawyers' media themes and, as expected, shows no understanding of rape trauma and misrepresents the actual evidence. More importantly, Mr. Winston should get used to the rape allegations against him because film or no film, they aren't going away."
