Ex-NFL Player Kellen Winslow, Jr. Found Guilty Of Raping Homeless Woman & Indecent Exposure

Former NFL player, Kellen Winslow, 35, was found guilty of the rape of a 58-year-old homeless woman in a San Diego, California court on Monday. One of Winslow’s victim, who was identified in court as Jane Doe 2, testified against the former player that she was familiar with Winslow Jr. According to reports, on Mother’s Day in 2018, he told her that he would be taking her to get coffee, but instead drove her to a unsupervised area and raped her.

During her testimony, Winslow’s Jane Doe 2 describes how afraid she was while being raped.

“I thought we were going to stop at Denny’s, and he just kept going and going and going and going. He held me, grabbed my arm … and said, ‘We’re going to have sex.’ It was painful. I just kept my eyes closed. I was afraid of him. … He was a super big guy. … I just knew there was no way out.”

She continued her painful testimony saying Winslow threaten to kill her if she made any sudden noise.

“He told me if I scream, he’ll choke me to death or murder me — I don’t know what it was. I thought I was on my last night.”

In addition, not only did the jury found Winslow guilty of the rape by force against the victim identified as Jane Doe No. 2, the former NFL player was also found guilty of indecent exposure against the victim identified as Jane Doe No. 3.
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.

After more reports of his attack hit the media, another victim came forward making accusations against Winslow for allegedly raping her while she was a 17-year-old high school student in 2003. At the time, Winslow was 19-years-old and during a summer break from college, she said she passed out at a party in the San Diego area and woke up to find Winslow assaulting her.
