Back in 2021, former NFL player Kellen Winslow II was sentenced Wednesday to 14 years in prison for multiple rapes and other sexual offenses against multiple women in Southern California, including one who was homeless when he attacked her in 2018.
The 14-year-sentence was the maximum allowed under a plea deal. Winslow was convicted of forcible rape, rape of an unconscious person, assault with intent to commit rape, indecent exposure and lewd conduct in public.
The son of Chargers Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow has since been trying to escape prison on the basis that he suffered physical trauma from his football career contributed to the crimes that put him behind bars. It sounded good, but it did not work.
A San Diego County judge has denied him. Superior Court Judge Brad Weinreb ruled against him, stating that Winslow’s arguments weren’t timely and failed on their merits.
The judge noted that Winslow was sentenced to 14 years in 2021 after agreeing to plead guilty in a negotiated plea deal.
“Petitioner stipulated to this exact term as bargained for and the court cannot modify the plea as stipulated,” Weinreb wrote in his court order.
The 39-year-old will likely appeal Weinreb’s ruling in an effort to get out of prison much earlier.
He currently is serving time at a state prison in Tehachapi, California. If he somehow makes it out, Winslow must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and spent four seasons with the team, being named to the Pro Bowl in 2007. He also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
