Wow! How do you go from being an NFL baller to being found guilty of raping and assaulting women? Former Cleveland Browns player, Kellen Winslow, is living that reality right now. Winslow, 35, was found guilty of the rape of a 58-year-old homeless woman in a San Diego, California court Monday.
According to TheJasmineBrand.com, One of Winslow’s victim, who was identified in court as Jane Doe 2, testified that on Mother’s Day in 2018, he told her that he would be taking her to get coffee, but instead drove her to an unsupervised area and raped her, saying, “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. 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.”
According to ABC10News.com, Winslow was also found guilty of indecent exposure against the victim identified as Jane Doe No. 3.
