Winslow Jr. pleads not guilty to rapes
VISTA, CALIF.» Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was jailed without bail Friday after pleading not guilty to multiple counts of kidnapping, rape and other charges.
The 34-year-old Winslow was ordered to return to San Diego County Superior Court on June 25 for a preliminary hearing.
If convicted, Winslow could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
His attorney, Brian Watkins, did not immediately respond to a message left at his office.
Prosecutors say Winslow began a crime spree last March that included rapes, kidnappings, indecent exposure and burglary and continued until just before his arrest this week.
According to charging documents, he allegedly kidnapped and raped a 54-year-old woman on March 13 and then a 59-yearold woman on May 13.
On May 24, prosecutors say, he exposed himself in a public place, the location of which wasn’t disclosed.
The burglary charges involved alleged break-ins at the home of a 71-year-old woman on June 1 and an 86-year-old woman on June 7.
Winslow was originally arrested June 7 in the burglary case. After posting bail he was arrested again Thursday on the additional charges. On Friday, Superior Court Judge Robert Dahlquist ordered him held without bail.
The son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow, the younger Winslow spent 10 seasons in the NFL from 2004-13 with Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New England and the New York Jets.
