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.

  3. Rays journal: Jumbo Diaz falters after getting within a strike of ending rally

    ST. PETERSBURG — Saturday's game got away starting with a leadoff walk in the seventh inning by Rays LHP Jose Alvarado, who was brought in exclusively to face Baltimore's lefty-swinging Seth Smith.

    Rays reliever Jumbo Diaz wipes his face as he walks off the mound after the Orioles score four during the seventh inning to give them a 7-3 lead. Diaz was one strike away from working out of the jam before he allowed a two-run double and a two-run homer on back-to-back pitches.
  4. Rookie Jake Faria dissatisfied with performance in Rays' loss to Orioles

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The rookie pitcher walked to his locker Saturday after tossing the fourth quality start in as many tries to begin his career. He held the potent Orioles bats to three runs and for six innings gave his team a chance to win.

    It was refreshing to see RHP Jacob Faria take the blame after the loss even though he gave the Rays a chance to win. Too often young pitchers are encouraged by what they did and not necessarily the outcome, but Faria, making just his fourth big-league start, came to the Trop to win, didn't, and pointed the finger …
