Kellen Winslow II was recently charged with the rape of two transient women and a homeless community in San Diego is now shaken because of it.
VISTA, Calif. — Jurors in the Kellen Winslow II trial found the former NFL star guilty Monday on three of the 12 counts — including a rape charge — and will continue to deliberate.
Winslow shook his head as the first verdict was read, the felony charge related to the forcible rape of a 59-year-old homeless woman in May 2018. Winslow was also convicted of a lewd act in public conduct and indecent exposure — both misdemeanors — and was acquitted on another lewd act in public charge.
San Diego County the Superior Court Judge Blaine K. Bowman sent the jury back to deliberate on the other eight charges.
“They will come back with verdicts in five minutes or two weeks,” Bowman said. “We will see that happens..”
Jurors passed a note to the judge about 5 p.m. ET Monday notifying Bowman they had come to a decision on the four counts.
The jury had deliberated for more than 20 hours over parts of five days before notifying the court of the partial verdict.
Winslow, 35, was charged with 12 combined criminal counts involving five different women — three accusing him of rape and two other cases of misdemeanor indecent exposure and lewd conduct. All but one of the women is 55 or older.
Winslow, who pleaded not guilty, did not testify at the two-week trial.
Winslow was selected sixth overall in the 2004 NFL draft and made about $40 million as an NFL tight end from 2004 to 2013.
