An NFL star and son of a Hall-of-Famer got convicted — and the prison sentence is no ‘slap on the wrist’ either.
The son of another NFL star with the same name, Kellen Winslow Junior stood trial for rape and indecent exposure. The thirty-five-year-old was drafted by the Browns in 2004, and played for the Buccaneers, Seahawks, Patriots and Jets until his injury-plagued career came to an end in 2011.
Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. has been convicted of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman last year north of San Diego. A jury returned the verdict Monday in San Diego Superior Court in Vista but was continuing to deliberate on two more counts of rape involving a hitchhiker and an unconscious teenage girl.
The jury also found the 35-year-old former tight end guilty of indecent exposure and lewd conduct, but found him not guilty of one count of a lewd act, which prosecutors had said happened in front of a 77-year-old woman in a hot tub in nearby Carlsbad.

But wait — there’s more!
Prosecutors say the son of Hall of Famer and former San Diego Chargers player Kellen Winslow felt empowered by his fame to abuse the most vulnerable.
…A 54-year-old hitchhiker said he drove her to an Encinitas shopping center parking lot and raped her in his Hummer in March 2018.
That summer, a 57-year-old woman said he exposed himself to her while she tended to her garden.
After news of the attacks broke, a woman came forward and said Winslow had raped her when she was a 17-year-old high school student in 2003. He was 19 at the time and had come home from college for the summer. She said she passed out at a party in a San Diego suburb and woke up to find Winslow assaulting her.
A 77-year-old woman who went to the gym as Winslow in the beach community of Carlsbad said he committed lewd acts in front of her, including touching himself in the facility’s hot tub, while Winslow was free on $2 million bail in February.

There was evidence placing him at the scene where his accusers said he was:
Prosecutors said the crux of the women’s stories didn’t change and that evidence included traces of Winslow’s DNA on one of the accuser’s pants and GPS locations placing him where the women said the assaults occurred.

The man will most likely spend the rest of his life in prison. What good is all that money and fame going to do him there?
Wealth can convey a feeling of invulnerability on people, lulling them into believing they are above the law. In this specific case, at least, money does NOT insulate you from prosecution.
That’s how the law is SUPPOSED to work. Now if we could only see the same equality under the law when the accused is politically well-connected.
How does one raise girls in a world where predators like him are lurking in our midst? By teaching them how to be Righteous and Rowdy.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
