(CBS Sports) The woman who accused Florida State's Jameis Winston of raping her plans to file civil suits against Winston, the Tallahassee Police Department and possibly Florida State.

"I want heads to roll," the woman's attorney, Pat Carroll, told ABC News. "Absolutely you're going to see a civil suit. You can not have law enforcement that is not held accountable."

Carroll claims that the Tallahassee Police Department was negligent in the way it handled the case, which ultimately led prosecutors to drop the case.

The charges against Winston were originally filed on Dec. 7, 2012 but an investigation was ended a few months afterward. The case then became active again in November after news of the charges against Winston became public. Florida's state attorney Willie Meggs conducted another investigation before deciding not to file any charges against Winston in December.

According to Carroll, Winston's accuser left school last semester and has been warned by Florida State not to return to protect her safety.
