SAN DIEGO (AP) — Kellen Winslow Jr., a former NFL No. 1 draft pick and son of a Hall of Famer who starred for his hometown San Diego Chargers, goes on trial Monday on multiple charges, including raping two women last year and the 2003 rape of an unconscious 17-year-old girl.
The 35-year-old who once was the highest-paid tight end in the NFL but saw his career sidetracked by injuries could face life in prison if convicted.
He has pleaded not guilty to all the charges, totaling 12 counts. A total of five women are listed as victims in the complaint that also includes allegations of lewd conduct and indecent exposure.
