Report: Evidence in Treon Harris sexual battery investigation "shaky at best"

David Jones appears to be leading the pack on this one.

David Jones of the FLORIDA TODAY has updated his story on Treon Harris being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, and the important paragraphs are the first two:

Huntley Johnson, the attorney representing University of Florida quarterback Treon Harris, said he would be surprised if charges are ever filed against the freshman who is being investigated for sexual assault.

Johnson, who has represented hundreds of Gators athletes over the years, said Monday that he was "hopeful" when the investigation was completed there would not be an arrest. A source familiar with the situation said the evidence was "shaky at best" and labeled it as a "he said, she said" situation.

It sounds to me as if Jones, who earlier reported a source telling him of the "he said, she said" nature of the case, has a law enforcement source. Few others would have access to evidence collected in this case to date, which likely consists of witness statements and any preliminary findings from a rape kit administered to the alleged victim.
