Kellen Winslow II was recently sentenced to 14 years in prison for multiple charges related to sexual assault and rape. The former NFL tight end is now also being sued by one of his victims.
An elderly woman who accused Winslow of lewd conduct at a gym in 2019 has filed a civil lawsuit against Winslow, according to TMZ. The suit lays out some of the graphic allegations against Winslow, which contributed to his 14-year jail sentence.
The victim, who was 77 at the time, said she was working out at the Crunch Carlsbad fitness center in Southern California on Feb. 13, 2019, when Winslow exposed himself to her and asked, “Do you see this, do you like it?” The woman says she immediately ran to find her husband and left the gym.
Less than two weeks later, the victim says she had another encounter with Winslow in the hot tub of the fitness center. Winslow allegedly got into the hot tub with the woman and rubbed her leg and arm without consent.
The woman is suing Winslow for unspecified damages, claiming she has “suffered and continues to suffer great pain of mind and body, shock, [and] emotional distress.”
Winslow, the son of Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, was drafted No. 6 overall by the Cleveland Browns in 2004. He played nine seasons in the NFL. He was also found guilty of raping a homeless woman in 2019, among other disturbing incidents.
Kellen Winslow II was found guilty of several charges relating to rape and sexual assault back in 2019, and the former NFL player will be going to for a very long time.
Winslow was sentenced in a California courtroom on Wednesday to 14 years in prison. The sentence was the maximum allowed under a plea deal he agreed to with prosecutors.
Winslow had been charged with multiple rapes and other sexual offenses against five women in Southern California. He was found guilty in 2019 of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman the year before. He was also found guilty of indecent exposure for exposing himself to a 58-year-old woman who was gardening in her front hard and lewd conduct related to an incident where he made sexual advances toward a 78-year-old woman in a health club.
During Winslow’s sentencing on Wednesday, San Diego County Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman said the 37-year-old can only be described with “two words, and that is sexual predator,” according to The Associated Press.
Kellen Winslow II is facing multiple felony charges, some of which relate to the alleged rape of multiple women. On Monday, he was found guilty of raping one woman.

The San Diego County jury remains deadlocked on six other felonies and two misdemeanors.
Winslow had rape and kidnapping charges filed against him last year. He was released on $2 million bail and placed on house arrest last June after being arrested on suspicion of raping two women in their 50s in the San Diego area. Prosecutors later said they believe Winslow 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.
Kellen Winslow II was surprisingly granted his release from jail last year despite facing kidnapping and rape charges, but the former NFL tight end is back behind bars following more disturbing allegations from an elderly woman.
According to Teri Figueroa of The San Diego Union-Tribune, prosecutors brought new charges against Winslow on Monday after a 77-year-old woman accused him of lewd conduct at a gym in Carlsbad, Calif., last month. The woman said Winslow was exercising near her on Feb. 13 when he began touching himself and asked if she liked it. More than a week later, he allegedly got into the same hot tub the woman was in while wearing only a towel and touched her arm and foot.
Winslow pleaded not guilty to new misdemeanor charges of battery of an elder and willful cruelty to an elder. On Monday, a judge ordered that he be held without bail.
Winslow is scheduled to go to trial next month for rape and kidnapping charges that were filed against him last year. He was released on $2 million bail and placed on house arrest last June after being arrested on suspicion of raping two women in their 50s in the San Diego area. Prosecutors later said they believe Winslow 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.
When Winslow’s alleged victims were in court to testify against him, the case took a strange turn when they were unable to identify him as the man who committed the crimes against him.
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.
Kellen Winslow appeared in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing, and his case took an interesting twist when three women could not identify the former NFL tight end as the man who committed crimes against them.
Winslow is facing charges of kidnapping and raping two women in addition to allegations of indecent exposure. According to FOX 5 in San Diego, a woman described as Jane Doe 1 said an African-American man picked her up when she was hitchhiking and gave her an ultimatum before sexually assaulting her.
“He said, ‘I’m gonna f— you or I’m gonna kill you,” the woman recalled. “He goes, ‘I don’t care who’s gonna watch. I’m gonna kill you.’ … I just thought he was going to shoot me or something. I don’t know. I can’t tell you why I didn’t run or I didn’t scream. I was that scared.”
The woman was asked if she recognized Winslow, who was sitting in court, as the man who attacked her, but she could not identify him.
Another woman, a 71-year-old identified as Jane Doe 4, said she encountered a trespasser on June 8 in the back of her mobile home but never felt the man was going to harm her. When she learned of Winslow’s arrest on a newscast later that evening and realized he was the same man who had been trespassing, she called the police at the urging of a friend. Like Jane Doe 1, she could not identify Winslow as the suspect in court on Wednesday.
A third woman was also unable to identify Winslow as the man who dropped his shorts and exposed himself to her on her property back in May.
Winslow is facing a long list of charges and is being held without bail. In the past he has typically had facial hair and not worn eyeglasses, so the look he was sporting in court Wednesday was certainly a new one.
Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. allegedly threatened to kill two of his rape victims if they told anyone about the assault.
In court on Friday, via TMZ Sports, prosecutors alleged that Winslow picked up two hitchhikers earlier this year in separate incidents, drove them to remote locations, and raped them. Winslow allegedly told both victims that he would kill them if they told anyone.
Winslow also allegedly broke into two mobile homes with the intent of raping two elderly women, but left without committing assault. He also allegedly tried to sell his Hummer to try and destroy evidence.
Winslow pled not guilty to all charges. He is being held without bail.
The full list of charges against Winslow is quite lengthy. If convicted on all of them, Winslow faces life in prison.
An arrest warrant was issued for Winslow on Thursday by the San Diego district attorney and he was taken into custody. The 34-year-old is set to be arraigned on Friday.
The arrest is Winslow’s second in a week. He was arrested last week on suspicion of burglary at a mobile home park in Encinitas, San Diego. His attorney dismissed the allegation and said an overly concerned neighbor had called the police. Winslow’s defense was that he was house-hunting for his mother-in-law.
Winslow is the son of Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow. The tight end played in the NFL from 2004-2013 and made the Pro Bowl in 2007 with the Browns.
Kellen Winslow II was arrested in connection with an alleged home burglary earlier this week, but the former NFL tight end says the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding.
Denise White, a spokesperson for the agency that represents Winslow, told Dennis Romero of NBC News that Winslow was house hunting for his mother-in-law when a resident from the community he was visiting called the police.
“An over reactive neighbor called police after she saw Kellen walking around a mobile home,” White said.
The neighbor told KGTV in Encinitas, Calif., that Winslow said he was looking for his dog when confronted. She said he was inside the home for about 10 minutes before leaving.
“I confronted him and said ‘Hi, can I help you with anything’,” she said. “He said, ‘Nope, just looking for my dog.’ I go, ‘What dog?’ and he said, ‘Well, it’s a red dog, Clifford.’ and I went, ‘There’s no dog here.’ I said, I’m not comfortable with this, you need to leave. And he just stood there and he went, ‘Alright then.'”
White said Winslow does have a red dog named Clifford, but he was being sarcastic when speaking with the neighbor.
“The owner said he never went inside the home or took anything, or nor was anything taken, touched or moved,” White added.
Winslow’s attorney, Harvey A. Steinberg, said in a statement that the 34-year-old “emphatically denies committing any burglary.”
“He would have no need to burglarize or steal anything from anyone at a trailer park,” Steinberg said. “He looks forward to being vindicated once this matter is fully investigated and adjudicated through the court system.”
Some, including Los Angeles social activist Jasmyne Cannick, have raised the possibility that Winslow was a victim of racial profiling.
“You could be doing the most harmless thing and people will call the police on you,” Cannick said. “Black people — we’ve moved up in the world. When people move up they move out to nicer neighborhoods. In those neighborhoods they get looked at as if they don’t belong.”
Winslow was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. His best season was in 2007 when he made the Pro Bowl, but he went on to have a somewhat rough career after that. Winslow, the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow, last played for the New York Jets in 2013, and nothing ever came of the announcement he made more than two years ago.
