A lawyer for the woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault asked Friday for Florida's attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems. Attorney Patricia Carroll called on the attorney general to investigate the Tallahassee Police Department's handling of the case, saying that detectives failed to interview key witnesses and that DNA tests were unreliable and incomplete. The lead detective got a search warrant for her client's cell phone and social media accounts but failed to do the same for Winston and his two companions immediately after the accusations were made, Carroll said. ''I'm looking at an investigation of a rape victim, not a rape suspect.'' Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case.
