TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Its handling of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is just the latest controversy to hit the Tallahassee Police Department.

A handful of grand juries recently have issued scathing reports about how some officers have conducted themselves in the line of duty. In the most egregious case, a fumbled drug investigation resulted in the death of an informant.

Now, the department is under scrutiny for its handling so far of a sexual assault case in which a Heisman Trophy candidate is accused. The family of the student who says she was raped claims the department tried to squelch the case: It took 11 months for police to hand over information to prosecutors.

But interim police Chief Tom Coe says the full story has yet to come out.
