Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to raping an unconscious teen and sexual battery involving a 54-year-old women.
Winslow initially hesitated and seemed to agonize over his decision.
“I’m sorry. I’m just not thinking very clearly,” Winslow told the judge at one point.
He asked the judge for more time before he finally entered the guilty pleas moments before he was about to be retried on six felonies including kidnapping, sodomy, forced oral copulation and two charges of forcible rape in San Diego County Superior Court that could have sent him to prison for life if he was convicted.
Pleading guilty spared Winslow life in prison.
It was back in June when a jury found him guilty of raping a homeless woman in Encinitas, north of San Diego as well as convicting him of two misdemeanors — indecent exposure and a lewd act in public — involving two other women.
