Kellen Winslow II faces a new charge in San Diego, accused of raping an unconscious 17-year-old girl in 2003, USA Today reports.

The former NFL tight end, now 34, was arraigned on the additional charge Thursday.

“When there is a rape that occurs and the victim is under the age of 18 years old, there is no statutory time [limit] to when that can be charged,” Dan Owens, deputy district attorney in San Diego County, said, via the newspaper.

Earlier Thursday, Winslow was ordered to stand trial on two counts of rape, two counts of kidnapping with intent to commit rape and one count of forcible sodomy. Winslow, who pleaded not guilty to all charges at a preliminary hearing, could face life in prison if convicted on all charges.

His next court hearing is scheduled August 17.

  1. No blurring of the consent lines with this guy. Let’s call him what he is – A serial rapist.

  2. Odd how CTE from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s made guys homeless and lost. New millenium CTE causes rape and domestic abuse. What is serious going on lately.

  3. He is real piece of work. Let’s see if they can some how get a conviction. I have doubts but hopeful.

  4. How sick was he if he really did do all this stuff?

    I’ll never understand how millionaire athletes have to do these things. Women seemingly throw themselves at these guys but there are always a handful of guys that just don’t get it. Smh.

  5. Sounds like they’re fishing. With multiple witnesses unable to identify him they’re trying to make anything stick. If there was enough evidence to prosecute him he would’ve be charged already prior

  6. He’s done. Thankfully he won’t be able to ruin any more people’s lives. What a dirtbag he turned into. A promising NFL career to a sexual predator.

  7. So we have Kellen Winslow II, LeSean McCoy and Steve Keimnall in the news for various criminal offenses

    Who says it’s not football season??!!
    Good Lord

  8. So in yesterday’s picture he looked like Steve Urkel. In today’s picture he looks like Aaron Hernandez. Which picture can we put with the next article?

  9. It’s sad that this predator has been on the loose for the past 15 years when he could’ve been stopped had he not been a really good athlete.

  10. I am not sure what is going on here but it looks like Winslow must have gotten on someone’s bad side for these charges. First, the women he is accused of raping couldn’t identify him, which begs the question, how was he brought up on charges, unless there is DNA, but since the prosecutors have been speaking to the media, nothing about physical evidence has been presented. Now, he is been charged on a 15 year old rape charge, back when he was 19, and the girl was 17, which means it is not under age, since 17 is the age of consent for young adults to engage in sexual activities. Not to say the girl wasn’t unconscious but just curious on all these charges.

  11. Oh, the Gov is out to get this “soldier”. They simply do not want this arrogant jerk on the street any longer, and one way or another, they WILL lock him away.
    Trump and his posse is still making America Great Again.
    One by one, cleaning up the swamp and locking away the undesirables

  12. it’s obvious there is something wrong with winslow…

    … but theres something wrong with a system that allows someone 15 years to decide if something was consensual.

    Sounds like he’s done alot of terrible things… but the piling on is ridiculous. I wonder how many of her friends she bragged to about this back in 2003? Now that it’s so well known he’s a dirt bag is she trying to save face?

    Consensual convenience.

  13. this guy is truly a low life! as a parent I couldn’t imagine going through this with my son…I’d be forced to turn my back on him im thinking

    a sad state of affairs really

  14. Wow this guy’s career never really took off then he turned to a life of crime. I’ll never understand the thought process of some of these guys.

  15. I have no idea whether or not Winslow raped anyone.

    But what I don’t understand is why any studly, rich, quasi-celebrity athlete (Exhibit A: Darren Sharper) would want to drug-and-rape, rape or sexually assault anyone. They must literally have beautiful, sexy and willing women throwing themselves at them all the time. SMH

  16. Strong case for reinstatement of public executions!!!
    Seriously, I bet the crime rate in AMERICA would plummet!!

    Because rape is about exerting power, not sex.

  18. hopefully there is dna evidence in some of these cases. that way, just modifying your appearance as drastically as winslow has won’t give him the reasonable doubt to dodge a charge that he actually did commit. and if he didn’t do all these crazy things, that would be proven as well.

  19. Not defending his actions, but doing the math of he’s 34 now this occurred when he was 19. Interactions between college athletes and high school women are not uncommon.

  20. And there you go, misogynists unite to defend him and call an unconscious girl a gold-digger. He’s not the only scumbag around here.

  21. Roger Goodell must be happy that Winslow no longer plays in the NFL. At least he doesn’t have to deal with this now. Since he’s going to have his hands full with the LeSean McCoy case for the next several months his limits would really be pushed if he had to deal with Winslow at the same time.

    She was 17 and he was 19. Think about it.

    ———-

    If you’re trying to say that he couldn’t have raped her because she was 17 and he was 19, then do us all a few favors… never reproduce, and go walk into traffic.

    I’d replace Keim with Browner since his is attempted murder.

    ============================================

    For the last accusation, Winslow ought to get used to that in prison. Guys in the slammer don’t like child molesters and rapists.

    Wow…. the ME TOO MOVEMENT is in full swing!!!
    ____________
    Wow… ISIS is invading NFL message boards!!! Let’s just hope this is a troll, but his 16 thumbs-up kind of terrify me

  26. He can share a cell with Darin Sharper. Surprised he didn’t play for the Saints. Seems like their type of character guy.

  27. Also to answer to everyone’s question, there is such a thing as a “mercy” plea. If accepted, the case never goes to trial, but if the defendant is indicted on a similar charge in the future, the “mercy” case is reopened, and the defendant stands on trial for both charges.

    Not saying this is definitely what happened, and is hard to imagine a judge granting a mercy plea in a stat. rape case, but it would explain the 15 year delay.

    Thanks for the info. I could see a mercy plea being due to her possibly being close to her 18th birthday.

  29. Dude trying to look like Steve Urkel now with fro and black glasses… maybe jury will cut him a break w the new look. Smh

    this POS needs to rot in prison….FOREVER!!!!!!

    He’d be better suited feeding worms.

    hell yeah, i was just thinking zthe same damn thing. buh-bye grandma raper.

  31. This guy is not good enough to waste being housed and fed for the rest of his life. If found guilty, give him an immediate appeal and end it.

    But if he goes to prison, he will be separated from his parents. This is so unfair!

    Um, no. Almost none of that has anything to do with how criminal cases are handled in the USA, not to mention the various violations of state and federal constitutions involved, and the practical problems of lost of misplaced evidence, death of witnesses, changed perceptions, etc.

    An accused can plead guilty or nolo contendere, or the accused can plead not guilty and then be found to be guilty after a trial. In all 3 situations, there is a judgment of guilt entered. Then comes the sentencing phase, where mitigating circumstances can be taken into account to reduce the punishment imposed for the finding of guilt. THAT is where the “mercy” comes in – yes, the criminal did the crime, but the punishment is less because of some good reason(s). There is no delaying of a trial.

    Sometimes, as part of a sentence for being guilty, the criminal gets probation: the law imposes a lighter punishment for this crime and reserves the right to impose a heavier one if the criminal doesn’t stay clean for some period of time. But again, no delay of trial.

    The simple fact is that in this case a 15 year old rape was not charged until now because there just wasn’t enough evidence to do so until now. As for why it took 15 years – we’ll see that as the case progresses.

  35. This happened 15 years ago, so it seems like there must be a DNA match from the crime scene evidence.

  36. He’s not a soldier, he’s never fought a battle, he’s not a man, he’s not a human being. He is a piece of *hit who, as said by a previous commentator, should be castrated and put in prison with the worst criminals.

  37. ibillwit..you said you don’t buy it that crime rates for NFL players are similar to those of other professions. Keep in mind that in this case, his charges came long after he was out of the league.

    Other professions don’t have sites that post articles about former employees getting arrested.
