The case of Kellen Winslow Jr. has been bizarre from jump.
Back in June of 2018, we reported that Winslow Jr. was “arrested and charged with one felony count of first-degree burglary charges after a resident in the senior community of Encinitas in northern San Diego called police to report a burglary. Winslow spent a few hours in jail, posted $50,000 bond and was released while denying the charges. His legal team and publicist both said it was a mistake and that he knew the owner of the trailer home he was seen around.”
“Mr. Winslow emphatically denies committing any burglary. He would have no need to burglarize or steal anything from anyone at a trailer park. He looks forward to being vindicated once this matter is fully investigated and adjudicated through the court system,” said his attorney, Harvey A. Steinberg, at the time.
As the dust was settling, a second bombshell rocked the Winslow family when he was arrested again. This time he was “charged with “two counts of kidnapping with the intent to commit rape, two counts of forcible rape, one count of forcible sodomy, one count of forcible oral copulation, two counts of residential burglary and one count of indecent exposure.”
Those eight felony counts, and one misdemeanor, involved multiple female victims between the ages of 54 and 86. If convicted, the former NFL tight end could face life in prison.
Yesterday, Winslow Jr., who was out on bail, was picked up again.

According to the San Diego Tribune, he was thrown back in jail without bail after being charged with accusations of lewd conduct in front of a 77-year old world in a gym in Carlsbad in February. The charges are misdemeanors, and after pleading not guilty, he was ordered to remain home on house arrest.
But yesterday Vista Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman revoked his bail, which had been set at $2 million, and ordered him placed back in jail.
Now Winslow Jr., once a promising young NFL player, will have to sit in jail until his trial starts, which was scheduled for next month.
