KAREEM COPELAND, Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — An attorney says Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has requested a delay in the student code of conduct hearing scheduled for the week of Nov. 17.

John Clune, a lawyer for the woman who says Winston sexually assaulted her, confirmed the request was made to the university but did not know how long of a delay Winston is seeking.

The Tampa Bay Times first reported Winston’s request

Winston is facing a hearing to determine whether he violated four sections of the code of conduct — two for sexual misconduct and two for endangerment. The former female student said he assaulted her in December 2012.

Both sides can request postponements for reasons that would have to be individually reviewed.

Winston family adviser David Cornwell did not immediately return phone messages.
