Kellen Winslow released from jail despite multiple rape charges
Kellen Winslow II is facing charges stemming from the alleged sexual assault of multiple women, but the former NFL tight end was released from jail this week.
According to a report from TMZ, Winslow posted $2 million bail and has been granted his release while his charges are pending. He has been ordered to remain on house arrest and must wear a GPS device at all times.
Winslow was initially arrested on suspicion of raping two women in the San Diego area earlier this year, but prosecutors said Thursday they believe he is guilty of raping a third woman, described as a 17-year-old female who was unconscious at the time Winslow allegedly sexually assaulted her. Winslow is also accused of breaking into a mobile home park on two separate occasions with the intent to rape an elderly woman.
Winslow’s alleged victims were in court to testify this week, and the allegations against the 34-year-old are very disturbing. However, the case took an interesting turn on Wednesday when three women were unable to identify Winslow as the man who committed crimes against them.
Due to the long list of charges he is facing, Winslow was initially being held without bail. It’s unclear why the judge had a change of heart.
