Breaking News

0125-florida-state-01Florida State has reached a settlement with the woman who claimed she was raped by Jameis Winston in 2012 ... shelling out nearly $1 million to make her lawsuit go away. 

The accuser's lawyers announced the terms of the settlement Monday -- saying the cash figure includes attorney's fees. FSU also agreed to make a 5 year commitment to training programs. 

The accuser -- Erica Kinsman -- will reportedly receive $250k, her attorneys will get $700k. 

As we previously reported, Kinsman sued FSU claiming the university ran a shoddy investigation in an effort to keep Winston on the football team.  She had said the response to her accusations was "clearly unreasonable."

Kinsman issued a statement about the settlement saying, "I will always be disappointed that I had to leave the school I dreamed of attending since I was little. I am happy that FSU has committed to continue making changes in order to ensure a safer environment for all students."

For his part, Winston has always denied any wrongdoing -- insisting the sex was consensual.
