Ex-NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr convicted of raping homeless woman

Kellen Winslow Jr

The rape charge stemmed from a May 13, 2018 assault on a 58-year-old homeless woman in Encinitas. The lewd conduct incident involved a 78-year-old woman at a health club.

Winslow faces a maximum sentence of 8 years in prison for the rape charge and an additional 6 months for the indecent exposure and and lewd conduct convictions.

Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. - the son of a Hall of Famer who himself earned more than $40 million during his career - has been convicted of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman last year in his picturesque beach community of Encinitas, north of San Diego. A short time later, the jury foreman sent a note to the judge saying that the panel remained deadlocked on all remaining charges.

He still faces charges in connection to the rape and kidnapping of a 54-year-old hiker last March and of raping an unconscious 17-year-old girl in 2003 when he was 19. In addition to the aforementioned charges, Winslow was cited for exposing himself to two different women over the past year. Jurors also found him guilty of one count of lewd contact with the victim identified as Jane Doe No. 5, but they found him not guilty of a second count of lewd contact the same woman.

Winslow, who opted not to testify in his own defense, frequently sat emotionless in the trial that began May 20 in Vista, California, and went to the jury of eight men and four women Tuesday, on what USA Today described as "perhaps the most important day of the Winslow trial".

Justice Dept to Hand Over Underlying Evidence for Mueller Report
The two sides gave contradicting interpretations on whether the report proved that the Trump administration obstructed justice. Dean pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for his role in the scandal and was sent to prison for four months.

Prosecutors said Winslow, who played for Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New England and the New York Jets, felt empowered by his fame to abuse the most vulnerable and that he appeared to target middle-aged and elderly women.

While Winslow was out on bail and awaiting trial, a 77-year-old woman reported that he had committed lewd acts in front of her at a gym in February.

A 57-year-old woman said he exposed himself to her while she tended to her garden in May of 2018. Bail was revoked following his arrest in that case.

Owens said none of the five women knew each other, yet their accounts yielded common details and similar physical descriptions of the suspect.
