Kellen Winslow II to spend 14 years in prison after new plea deal

Former Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow II will spend 14 years in prison after agreeing to a new plea deal Friday, according to USA Today.

Winslow pleaded guilty to rape and sexual battery charges in November of 2019. He revised that deal in an agreement submitted Friday in San Diego Superior Court. Under his previous agreement, Winslow was sentenced to 12 to 18 years in prison. The length of his sentence was to be determined at a hearing.

As part of Friday's deal, Winslow pleaded guilty to "assaulting a hitchhiker with the intent to commit rape in March 2018," according to USA Today. That replaces Winslow's previous sexual battery plea.

In June of 2019, Winslow was found guilty of rape, indecent exposure and lewd conduct. Jurors were deadlocked on six other felonies, which prompted a retrial. Winslow pleaded guilty instead of face a retrial, which could have resulted in Winslow spending life in prison.

Winslow will be sentenced in March.

He was originally set to be sentenced in 2020, but that was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Winslow appeared at Friday's hearing remotely.

Kellen Winslow II spent nine seasons in NFL

Winslow was a first-round pick by the Browns in the 2004 NFL draft. He spent his first four season with the team, making the Pro Bowl in 2007. Winslow also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and New York Jets. He last played in the NFL in 2013.

Winslow is the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow Sr., who played nine seasons with the San Diego Chargers.

Plea deals:  A ridiculously out of hand way of meeting out justice.

I'm sure the lawyers on our site will scold me and tap me on the head for 'non understanding'.

I hear you, but in the end the sentence is about the same, and ultimately there isn’t enough time/availability for every case to go through with a full trial. Never mind all it takes is one juror to refuse to see what’s plain as day, so I can understand going with the sure thing. It’s not like he’s getting a slap on the wrist here. 14 years is a long time to get locked away.

I'm not just talking about just this case.  I'm talking about the sheer volume of plea deals. 

Commit, 10 offenses plead guilty to 1.

Defendant as guilty as can be, lazy plea deal.

Too many cases of justice are concluded in a board room with lawyers and prosecutors dealing over coffee and doughnuts.  then the judge rubber stamping almost all of these agreements.

Murders are given 7 years for 'manslaughter'.  SMH

With all due respect, if you have “non-understanding” of the law, I suggest to stay away from making such posts. Plea deals exist to reduce the burden on the court system and have a quick timely decision with reduced court expenses. 

Its like buying a used car. You still have to pay for it. You can save a little buying from a private party or you can go through a dealership and pay a premium for it for a car you really liked but they say “oh yeah that car in ad was just sold an hour before you arrived but I got this other fancy car for an extra grand”.

One has to wonder how much CTE is involved in this case.
Yet, even as a Hurricane he was showing signs of being a total SOB and it only got worst from there.
Growing up he went thru a ton of crap between his mother and father and there troubles, which is no excuse. Sadly, I expect we will not have heard the last of him. Either he kills someone while incarcerated or gets killed. If he completes his sentence,I expect he will eventually end up right back in prison for the rest of his life. The guy has never been right, even from an early age.

That is not at all how it goes.

Not at all. CTE makes you angry, hurt, depressed.. it doesn't make you go "eww let me go rape women".

That is a one hell of a sweetheart deal. I was following the trials - and charges - very closely. No question in my mind that Winslow would have escalated to murder, even it was "accidental". Some of his old teammates said ya know, locker room stuff is sometimes a little off-color, but the guy was weird to the point where they flat out avoided him (he watched porn non-stop, masturbated openly all the time, had no boundaries whatsoever). Now that probably sounds like a lot of you . . . pre-emptive strike. Anyway, now that that's out of the way . . .

There is something seriously the matter with this guy. He is a menace. While he was out on $1 million bail - which the judge should NEVER have allowed - he perved an older woman in the gym and if he wasnt re-arrested, no doubt he would've raped again in a short window.

Hide your kids, hide your wife when he gets out of prison. No joke. And fck you, Darren Sharper. Throw away the key on both.

He was a weirdo long before that, if it is indeed a factor. He skated on a rape in college.

Had Rex Ryan not gotten Mark Sanchez injured in the 2013 preseason, everything could have been different for Kellen.  So sad.

Sad story. Why?

A lot of rapists are married, have kids, and live conventional lives on the outside. Rape has little to do with sexual gratification. I'm asking you why it's a sad story and what your point is.
