Winston apologizes, says ‘conduct needs to be above reproach’

Jameis Winston Crab Legs

Suspended from Florida State’s baseball team after he was cited for shoplifting $32 worth of food from a grocery store, Jameis Winston has released a statement apologizing for the incident; “taking full responsibility” for yet another run-in with the law; and acknowledging, even as he yet again displayed the “youthful ignorance” of a player just coming off his redshirt freshman football season, “that my mistakes are magnified and can bring great embarrassment to all those who support me” and that “my conduct needs to be above reproach.”

Winston will be suspended from the FSU baseball team until he performs 20 hours worth of community service and pays a $30 fine as stipulated in the citation.  Additionally, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner needs to make restitution to Publix in the amount of $32.72 for the crab legs and crawfish he admitted to forgetting to pay for prior to leaving the store.

Here’s the Seminole quarterback’s statement, in its entirety:

“As reported in the news, last night I received an adult civil citation for petit theft from a local supermarket. I went to the supermarket with the intent to purchase dinner but made a terrible mistake for which I’m taking full responsibility. In a moment of youthful ignorance, I walked out of the store without paying for one of my items.

“I realize that I am in the public spotlight and my conduct needs to be above reproach. Over the last year I’ve learned that my accomplishments on the fields can be a wonderful thing for my school, teammates, friends, and family. At the same time, I must realize that my mistakes are magnified and can bring great embarrassment to all those who support me every day. I make no excuses for my actions and will learn and grow from this unfortunate situation. I hope and pray my friends and family will view me as the 20-year-old young man that I am, and support me through this unfortunate situation.

“I am grateful to be able to participate in the adult citation program where I will complete community service.”

    What a BS excuse. He is bad news. JF will kiss his a$$ and tell him everything will be fine. Don’t the people at FSU see a pattern forming here. Non are as blind as those that can not see.

    He writes very well!

    Don’t you think?

    That’s a great statement that FSU’s public affairs and/or athletic department wrote for Jameis. He’s 20, not 2. My 6-year old knows it’s wrong to steal and has never in his life walked out of a store without paying for something.

    He should major in creative writing. Deans list.

    That boy has “fired on his day off” in his near future. I hope the football thing works out.

    How can anyone stick up for this moron. He is clearly demented, no respect for society. He should be the next US president, would fit right in the way that country is going.

  11. wadaea says: Apr 30, 2014 4:41 PM

    “In a moment of youthful ignorance” means i thought i was above the law and because i am jamis winston i can steal and lie and everyone is suppose to turn their heads.

    I know what you meant, but you almost made it sound like you make your 6-year old buy something every time he goes to a store. That was funny.

    What Winston did is not funny. Athletes should not be above the law.

    SHUT DOWN THE PROGRAM! Theft, raped and who else knows what cover-up is going on! DEATH PENALTY!

  14. divingdancer says: Apr 30, 2014 5:11 PM

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the next Marcus Vick! And

    “I didn’t rape her”

    “It wasn’t a gun. It was a cell phone. The clerk that handed me all the money in the register was mistaken.”

    “I didn’t steal the crab legs. I forgot that I had them. You have to understand, it’s not the first time that I’ve had crabs in the front of my pants”

  15. Deb says: Apr 30, 2014 5:11 PM

    Well, FSU fans, congratulations. This is what it means to be the National Champs. The jealousy is palpable. If you guys were, say, New Mexico, no one would be commenting on multiple players being arrested on rape charges. But you’re the National Champs and your QB has won the Heisman Trophy. So let him walk out of a store with $32 worth of crab legs and BY GOD, STRING HIM UP.

    Yep, it’s tough to be king. ;)

  16. Deb says: Apr 30, 2014 5:13 PM

    @divingdancer …

    Who the heck is Marcus Vick?

  17. sdelmonte says: Apr 30, 2014 5:22 PM

    Hard not to believe that his draft stock is going to sink. Though maybe it’s a good thing he can’t come out for another season, as that extra year could let him figure things out.

    Or not, given that the media seems to think Clowney and Johnny Football are both 11 years old.

  18. cfballfan1 says: Apr 30, 2014 5:22 PM

    Why steal? He should’ve just applied for food stamps. Everyone else who asks this administration gets them. Oh – and a free cell phone too.

  19. canetic says: Apr 30, 2014 5:45 PM

    The only person that buys a $32 sandwich at Publix is a person that intends to steal a $32 sandwich from Publix. This was not an accident.

    Have you ever heard this guy talk? He can hardly complete a sentence.

    Where did he hide the butter ?

  23. normtide says: Apr 30, 2014 6:50 PM

    I have two thoughts on this, and they contradict each other. First, years ago I pumped some gas into my car, went in to pay and saw a friend. After about ten minutes of talking with him, I paid for a cold drink and totally forgot to pay for my gas. I had to go by the next day and pay them, after I realized what happened. So, I see how it can happen.

    My second thought is, trouble might be starting too be a trend with this young man. This, rallies allegations, shooting windows out with a bb gun. I hope it isn’t that.

  24. Deb says: Apr 30, 2014 6:52 PM

    Oh my … apparently I’m the only one who didn’t know Michael Vick has a younger brother named Marcus, an undrafted player for the Dolphin in 2006 who played in one game before leaving football due to legal problems.

    So, divingdancer, you think Heisman Winner Jameis Winston is on his way to being an undrafted free agent who’ll wind up playing only one game in the NFL?

    Or are you really trying to compare shoplifting $32 worth of crab with Michael Vick’s dogfighting ring? Something worthy of sarcasm … whether or not anyone else thinks so.

  25. blueknightblog says: Apr 30, 2014 7:12 PM

    For those of you who believe that he “forgot” to pay for one item, shame on you.

    He got the Heisman trophy and part of the criteria is an emphasis on integrity. NO integrity here.

    Deb, don’t get hung up on the dollar value, that is not the issue. Stealing is stealing. If you steal a dollar or a thousand dollars, it is still stealing.

    I doubt that he wrote that statement that is attributed to him. It is well crafted and well written. He didn’t write it.

    He doesn’t deserve the Heisman Trophy, he certainly lacks integrity. Excuses are like a–holes, everybody has one.

    I am sure that nothing will come of this and he will go on to make millions of dollars in the NFL.

    I love to make completely off-topic political posts mocking poor people on a college football website. I lead a rich and full life, and am not sad in the slightest.

  27. noaxetogrind says: Apr 30, 2014 7:18 PM

    I am somewhat disappointed but not surprised by the cavalier attitude of some as to this incident. We have folks who say they also forgot to pay at some point in their life, the problem here is that he didn’t forget, he willfully committed theft by his own admission and attributed it to “youthful ignorance” as if he didn’t know it was wrong to steal. We have others saying that it really isn’t that big of a deal, it’s only getting magnified because he plays for the National Champions. Thanks for your wonderful master of the obvious insight. Of course it is magnified in terms of media scrutiny. However the increased media scrutiny has nothing to do with the clear and disturbing pattern this young man is demonstrating. If you feel this is not a big deal, great you are entitled to your opinion. However don’t try and minimize his actions with non relevant comparisons. This kid is definitely trending the wrong way. I would hope that is also a master of the obvious comment.

  28. eugenesaxe1 says: Apr 30, 2014 8:30 PM

    He was later seen leaving a local Wendy’s with one of those big freakin’ rolls of toilet paper retail establishments use.

  29. suprdok says: Apr 30, 2014 9:12 PM

    I agree with Blueknightblog. It goes to character whether a dime dollar or $1000! Sick and tired of the entitlement above the law mentality so many athletes get! Most people go through college without a scholarship much less a full one and seem not to starve to death. This whining about no money or food and to be paid is bogus also!! These players are enabled by so many making them think they don’t have to play by the rules!! He knew exactly what he was doing!

  30. Deb says: Apr 30, 2014 9:16 PM

    I am overwhelmingly disappointed and absolutely stunned by the hang-em-high attitude of most as to this silly incident. We have folks comparing the shoplifting of $32 worth of crab to Michael Vick’s dog-fighting ring. No, it’s really not that big of a deal. I’m not condoning shoplifting. But it doesn’t warrant flogging, imprisonment, removal from the team, or execution. He needs to pay for the crab, pay a fine, do a little community service (which is more than some folks get for violent felonies), and straighten up.

    Those of you trying to maximize a piddling misdemeanor with ridiculously irrelevant comparisons desperately need therapy. Maybe Obamacare can help. Best of luck. All the masterful insight is free.

  31. burgandy2260 says: Apr 30, 2014 9:17 PM

    You would think that being cleared of a rape charge would make this guy a couch sitting bible reader. But no! He’s gonna ride this popularity, without any guidance, until a year from now when an NFL franchise will draft the next Aldon Smith. If he’s this entitled now how do you think he’s not destined to implode? And I’m really sick and tired of the coaches and parents sticking up for a punk like this. Up front he has the cheesy BS smile but deep down he’s nothing but trouble!

  32. Deb says: Apr 30, 2014 9:20 PM

    @blueknightblog …

    It’s not about the dollar amount. It’s about the prankishness of the act. He’s a kid acting like a kid. Should he be disciplined? Certainly. But I’m looking for a proportional response from a mature public. Instead, readers are behaving as though he shot up a supermarket. The irrationality of it is … mind-boggling.

  33. burgandy2260 says: Apr 30, 2014 9:28 PM

    It’s not prankishness. He’s not some kid who doesn’t have a clue who made a simple mistake. He’s some kid who was cleared of rape. He’s some kid who is well aware of the $ that is waiting for him a year from now. He’s some kid who knows exactly what he’s doing at all times and thought he could pull a fast one. I commend the store owner for trying to press charges. He’s not a baby. He’s been through a rape case and he’s well aware of everything that he does.

  34. burgandy2260 says: Apr 30, 2014 9:31 PM

    The really sad thing is that I LOVE FOOTBALL and he’s a football player and if he’s on my team in a year and does well I’ll have forgotten all about this. And if he isn’t I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy the show. BOOM!

  35. Deb says: Apr 30, 2014 10:00 PM

    @burgandy …

    Sigh … when I say “prankishness,” I’m not suggesting it was a prank. It was asinine. He’s being an idiot and needs to be reined in. Yeah, I’d be a lot tougher on him if he played for Bama. But it’s not comparable to what Mike Vick did. And three New Mexico players have been hauled in for rape but the only comment on that thread so far is a snarky reference to FSU.

    I’m not condoning or excusing Winston. But people are blowing this way way out of proportion because of who he is and where he plays.

  36. bobsnygiants says: Apr 30, 2014 10:42 PM

    Maybe he caught crabs

    Come on people, we all know he’s never stolen anything from a store before.

  39. germanflats13a38 says: Apr 30, 2014 11:59 PM

    Make buddy’s scenario: Publix employee in the back steams and seasons the crabs & crawfish and tells Jameis that it’s on the house. Manager/security guard independently observes Jameis with items in his hands without going through the line and detain him.

    Plausible. I don’t think that scenario is any less criminal, nor does it expose a less significant character flaw.

  40. iwishwvuwouldbeatbama says: May 1, 2014 2:20 AM

    Women, crabs, looks like no one is safe in Tallahassee! It is so funny that people write these press releases up for these students and forget what they sound like and how they talk in their interviews. It just shows that no one takes any of this seriously. Oh, he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. No problem, have someone put together a press release have him read it and its over. I just hope they do not place him in a retirement home for his service. Those older ladies wont be able to run fast enough to get away from him. You know just in case his “youthful ignorance” acted up again.

  41. longborer69 says: May 1, 2014 2:27 AM

    Hardly anyone is comparing this to Michael Vick.

    But really. “I make no excuses for my actions” — calling it youthful ignorance is making excuses.

    Once again, the Heisman is left with dirt on it because the voters decided that “integrity” thing doesn’t matter.

    Even if he isn’t a rapist, he cheats on his girl and he steals from businesses, who pass the cost of his theft on to everyone else.

  42. Deb says: May 1, 2014 8:15 AM

    Riiiight. As bajagopher says, “we all know he’s never stolen anything from a store before” and clearly it bugs a lot of people, as it does iwishwvuwouldbeatbama that “people write these press releases up for these students and forget what they sound like and how they talk in their interviews.”

    longborer69, this lynch-mob mentality doesn’t have anything to do with $32 worth of crab that Publix is passing on to all of us or that even if he isn’t a rapist, he cheats on his girl (because those two things are comparable).

    The world is not black and white … except on CFT.

    Deb, I have to respectfully disagree with you on this one and it has nothing to do with Jameis Winston playing for FSU, or the reigning BCS championship team.

    In response to your statement “He’s a kid”…No he’s 20 years old and old enough to know what theft means. Prank or not, he already has been associated with a serious charge for which he managed to walk away without legal penalty because of the way the young lady compromised herself in the public view. At 20 years old, youngsters are old enough to obtain and operate a vehicle, vote, and enter into contractual agreements on loans, residential leases and other forms of personal business. The point is not the dollar amount, its the moral issue of he dishonestly took something without paying for it.

    I’m not saying he needs to be “strung up” but in light of what legal issues he’s been through since arriving in Tallahassee that mind you is still ongoing, this was absolutely stupid of him to attempt, prank or not, and I’m going to side with not. He may be immature, but a Kid, No, legally in most states he would have been arrested for theft. With the hint of coverup still being tied to TPD and FSU over the other incident, a mere citation which mind you the average individual would NOT have gotten, this just continues to add to the thought that he’s being given special treatment. It also is not beneficial to him as an “immature 20 year old” with the history of legal woes to let that continue to be his excuse.

    If the item only cost a dollar and was tiny I might possibly see someone getting distracted and not paying for or missing the item when reviewing receipt. Not saying that is an exceptable excuse just making reference to his statement to the sheriff’s department that he “didn’t realize he hadn’t paid for the seafood”. However, as a frequent grocery shopper with 30 years experience while raising 3 children, can contest that there is no way you leave out with something that cost $38 and you not know that you didn’t pay for it…

    Excuses can be made but this is indicative of something he has probably done before but just got caught this time…

  48. Deb says: May 1, 2014 11:23 AM

    @dhardy8207 …

    Thank you for an intelligent comment. Of course, I understand what you’re saying–and agree with everyone that it’s unacceptable for Winston to shoplift anything, whether it’s $32 of crab or a pack of gum. However, you’ll have to excuse the sister/sister-in-law of criminal defense attorneys for saying we don’t know whether he’s stolen anything else, nor is that relevant. And yes, this is exactly the punishment that would be given to John Q. Public in these same circumstances. I often hear people complaining that football players are being given special treatment in situations like these when, in fact, they are usually being treated exactly as any other offender would be treated. The public isn’t necessarily aware of how our criminal justice system operates.

    Although the forensic evidence proved beyond doubt that Ben Roethlisberger was not guilty of sexual assault in Georgia, I was furious that he’d put himself in that situation. He was 28, a professional quarterback, and had already faced another assault accusation. His behavior was inexcusable. So I understand what you’re saying about Winston. But I see a difference between a redshirt freshman college kid and a seasoned pro, between someone who’s 20 and someone who’s 28, between someone wandering through college and someone with an entourage of PR people. Yes, I think Winston’s a kid. An idiot kid. Should he know better? Absolutely. Should his coaches rein him in? Yes. Quickly. Could this screw up his career if he doesn’t get his act together? Oh, yes.

    But as sleazy as his behavior with that girl was, there’s ample evidence it was consensual. So he shouldn’t be penalized for an unfounded accusation or the incompetence of the local police. And if you factor out that situation–as we should–then what you’ve got is a kid pumping Coke into some ketchup containers, playing with a BB gun, and leaving a store with some crab legs. Yeah, you’d think he’d know better than to get his name in the papers again after that assault business. But being stupid isn’t a felony–and neither was this. What he does next will say a lot about him. So far, though, it’s been piddling stuff.

  49. noaxetogrind says: May 1, 2014 12:06 PM

    @ Deb, I have always found you in the past to be objective and balanced but you seem to be oddly in the extreme minority on this issue and by the number of your rebuttals strongly entrenched in an indefensible position.
    “Being stupid is not a felony”, that sentiment is where you seem to be lost. Ignorance or “stupidity” to use your word was not in play. Willful theft. He wasn’t confused or ambiguous as to the legality of his actions. If you are trying to say that the action was stupid, so be it, but the individual made a conscious and informed decision. What criminal act isn’t stupid? It is not new news to him, contrary to anything he may try to say, that his actions, good or bad, will be magnified. As I said, if you want to minimize it, fine that is your right. However I would hope that you would understand that your view is no less pejorative than those who choose to say that it is a big deal. What is not opinion is that this individual has had more run ins with the law than the average student and certainly more than every other Heisman winner in memory. Perhaps your family association with defense attorney’s which you feel perhaps gives you a unique perspective has clouded your objectivity.

  50. Deb says: May 1, 2014 12:34 PM

    @noaxetogrind …

    Actually, my brother and sis-in-law would probably leave me on this limb alone. Oh, they’d agree his punishment for this offense is typical, not special treatment for a football player, but they don’t like Winston. And I don’t like him either. While I don’t think he raped that woman, I do think his behavior was sleazy. I agree that these antics aren’t Heisman-worthy–but then I think the Heisman lost its moral authority a long time ago.

    My only real argument is that he’s an idiot, not a psychopath, and some of the comments against him have been a little extreme. But you’re right … I have gotten somewhat carried away given that I don’t really like the guy. Probably my “me against the world” mentality :)

    ———————————————————-

    Deb, again I respectfully disagree with your cavalier attitude that “yeah he should no better”…
    Deb, my angle on this is there are MANY MANY MANY people in jail right now for stealing “little stuff” because it is against the law and eventually leads to big stuff. I also disagree that this is exactly how it would have been handled with the average JOE. Example, in Pensacola Florida back in 2010 a woman who worked with my son at a resort in Orange Beach was arrested for stealing a small pack of diapers (less than $20) from a dollar store. She worked in the custodial department making around minimum wage and was struggling between paychecks. She wasn’t issued a citation and allowed to go on about her business as usual, she was detained at the store. Was it right that she stole the diapers instead of asking to borrow a few bucks from someone? NO. However she was not given a “citation” she was arrested and had to post bail! I’m sure the fact that her being a “nobody” had nothing to do with how she was handled for petty theft. Since when did we as a society just dismiss petty theft because (in your own words) “its not a felony”, it is still theft my sister no matter how you try to dress it up. If we look at this as “just a “KID” being a kid” (laughably at 20 years old) then that should be indicative of why PRO athletes think they are above the law. Its the perception some in society have given them because in situations like this they are given preferential accommodations when they get into the “little, stupid stuff”.

    The fact that everytime this young MAN gets into trouble, shockingly he seems to be able to avoid the normal process. Again the way the officials have handled all the little “mishaps, misfortunes, misunderstandings” or however you and others choose to explain them away is exactly why this young man is under scrutiny every time his name is brought up in the press…

    My last response to noaxetogrind should have ended this. Since it wasn’t sufficient for you … or you didn’t bother to read it … or you really really don’t know that people–even when they don’t play football–do not go to jail on a first offense for stealing $32 of crab, I’m not going to keep reading ridiculous dissertations that I’ve already addressed.

    You can, however, keep writing them if you want.

  53. dhardy8207 says: May 1, 2014 1:52 PM

    Deb,

    My apologies if you have become a bit discontented with my responses to your post but with all due respect noaxetogrind’s comment was not posted when I started my response back to you. You may chose to stop reading my post and I won’t be offended. It is ironic however that you continue to repeatedly post your opinion of the situation scolding anyone on this thread who seems to differ from yours.

    Duly noted….. You have a wonderful day….

  54. Deb says: May 1, 2014 2:16 PM

    @dhardy8207 …

    I’m sorry. That was very rude, and I do enjoy your posts. Just felt I’d put a cap on the whole thing, and then you’d started in on me again while someone elsewhere was also giving me a hard time. Yes, I’ve also experienced that ships-passing thing of writing a long response while someone else posted in the meantime, so of course, I understand.

    I do think my response to noaxetogrind pretty much covers this situation, so I’ll just leave it there. But I look forward to interacting with you again on other topics. I never mind being challenged–especially when the comments are as thoughtful as yours.

  55. normtide says: May 1, 2014 3:16 PM

    Everyone is allowed idiotic moments, thank God for that. But Winston is leaving a trail of foolish actions. The truth is, it will have no effect on his NFL career, don’t kid yourself.

    I don’t think this kid is the devil, but the court of popular opinion is harsh and cruel. He has had at last four run ins with the law since he came to campus. I’m usually the first to call for a kid to get a second chance. I do draw a line some where though. Actually, friendly treatment due to his ability is working to his detriment. I’m actually rooting for this young man, I hope the baseball suspension becomes a lesson learned.

    you people are naive, our government goes all out on protecting American citizens money and property, they’ll fight for that. Their just not very interested in protecting American Citizens. My football coach molested six kids, finally got sentenced to ten years, got beat up a couple times in prison, so members of our business community petitioned his release. he did less than two years. One of his victims stole a car a year before he got caught, 11 years later we are still waiting for his release. system doesn’t work. start buying guns ,ammo, canned foods and bottled water.

    I completely believe this story. And you’re right–a lot about the criminal “justice” system doesn’t work, especially as it involves child molestors.
