Ex-NFL player guilty of rape, indecent exposure, lewd conduct

San Diego Informer via Twitter

A California jury on Monday convicted former National Football League player Kellen Winslow II of rape and misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure and lewd conduct.

According to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo.com, Winslow was found guilty of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman (Jane Doe No. 2), guilty of indecent exposure in a case involving a 58-year-old woman who was gardening in her yard (Jane Doe No. 4), guilty of lewd conduct involving an elderly woman he shared a hot tub with at a health club in 2019 (Jane Doe No. 5).

Winslow, 35, had pleaded not guilty to three counts of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, forcible sodomy, kidnap for specific felony, and forcible oral copulation, all felonies.

Winslow was arrested past year when authorities say he sexually assaulted two women in two separate instances occurring in March 2018 and May 2018, respectively.

Taken by the Browns with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, Winslow suffered a broken right leg his rookie season then sustained a serious knee injury to the same leg in a motorcycle accident that offseason. He finished his career with 469 catches for 5,236 yards and 25 touchdowns.

The verdicts follow a roughly three-week trial that saw all five accusers testify and the prosecutor refer to Winslow as a sexual predator.

While Winslow was out on $2 million bail, he was arrested for lewd conduct in front of a 77-year-old woman at a gym on two separate occasions in February of this year.

Winslow II played 12 games for the Jets in 2013.

A 54-year-old hitchhiker said he drove her to an Encinitas shopping centre parking lot and raped her in his Hummer in March 2018.

Winslow is the son of Hall of Fame tight end, Kellen Winslow Sr.

"Lightning doesn't strike twice, let alone five times", Owens said during his closing argument to the jury.

The North County jury, which has been deliberating since last week, reached verdicts on four of 12 counts filed against the one-time Pro Bowl player.

The defense argued that Winslow was wrongly accused, and that the case was plagued by lack of evidence and questionable credibility of alleged victims.

The rape charge stemmed from a May 13, 2018, assault on a 58-year-old homeless woman in Encinitas. Bail was revoked following his arrest in that case.

Winslow's attorneys, Marc Carlos and Brian Watkins, told the jury that the charged incidents were either consensual sex or never occurred at all.
