TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Documents obtained by The Associated Press show that Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has been cleared of the allegations he faced at a student code of conduct hearing this month.
    
The hearing focused on sexual assault allegations a former student brought against Winston two years ago. A prosecutor decided not to criminally charge him, citing a lack of evidence.
    
Former Florida Supreme Court judge Major Harding wrote in a letter to Winston that the evidence was "insufficient to satisfy the burden of proof."
    
The hearing was to determine whether Winston violated four sections of the code of conduct - two for sexual misconduct and two for endangerment.
    
The ramifications for Winston ranged from a reprimand to expulsion from school.
    
The woman can request an appeal within five days.
