A DNA analysis completed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Tuesday matched the DNA of Florida State quartberack Jameis Winston to that of a sample from the underwear of a woman who has accused him of sexual battery.

The changes of the DNA belonging to someone else is one in 2.2 trillion according to the Florida State crime lab.

An incident between Winston and the accuser is said to have taken place on Dec. 7 2012.

On Wednesday night, Tallahassee interim police chief Tom Coe said the accuser stopped cooperating with police in February. A statement released earlier Wednesday by the accuser’s family through her attorney, Patricia Carroll of Tampa, said Tallahassee police warned the accuser not to pursue the case, saying Det. Scott Angulo told Carroll, “Tallahassee was a big football town and the victim needs to think long and hard before proceeding against him because she will be raked over the coals and her life will be made miserable.”

The case became inactive after the accuser stopped communicating with police.

Winston is scheduled to start in Saturday’s game against Idaho.
