ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) - The lawyer for the woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault is planning a press conference.
   
The conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday in a park in Zephyrhills. Patricia Carroll, the attorney representing the woman, said in a news release that her client wanted her to make a statement.
   
The young woman's mother told WTSP Channel 10 in Tampa on Thursday that the press conference is "gonna be good," but wouldn't elaborate.
   
On Dec. 5, Leon County State Attorney Willie Meggs announced there was not enough evidence to win a conviction against FSU quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Jameis Winston, mostly because there were too many gaps in his accuser's story.
   
The accuser didn't identify Winston until about a month after the alleged assault.
