Florida State defensive end Chris Casher is on disciplinary probation until the summer of 2015 for violating the school's conduct code, according to a disciplinary letter from the school's division of student affairs obtained by the Tampa Bay Times.

The punishment stems from a sexual encounter between Jameis Winston and a then-FSU student that became the center of a sexual-assault investigation in November. Winston was not arrested and was never charged in the incident.

Casher was found responsible for violating privacy and using an electronic device to do so by filming part of the encounter with his phone. He was found not responsible for sexual-related conduct that creates a hostile or intimidating environment because he did not ask to engage in any sexual acts and, according to his testimony, left the room when the woman told him to do so, according to the letter.

As part of his punishment, Casher cannot have contact with the complainant. He must also write a 3-4 page paper on Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers student who committed suicide in 2012 after a roommate secretly recorded him kissing another man, and create another written or PowerPoint presentation on the importance of privacy.
