Kellen Winslow Jr. will stand trial for an alleged 2003 rape of a teenage girl, a California judge ruled Monday.
The former NFL tight end, 35, was described by Yanoo Sports as emotionless as the woman, who was 17 at the time of the alleged assault, described the encounter with Winslow, who was 19 and in college at Miami at the time.
“I was 17, drinking under age. He was going to be in the NFL. I just felt why would anybody believe me?” Winslow’s accuser said in front of San Diego Superior Court judge Harry Elias Monday.
According to the woman, now 33, she and Winslow met at a party at Scripps Ranch, Calif. She said things were going well between them and that she eventually left with him to another party, then moved to a bedroom with him.
They started getting physical, but when Winslow’s friend walked in the room, the woman said she got upset when Winslow said the friend was going to watch. She got dressed and left, saying Winslow begged her, “You’ve just got to let me finish.”
The pair met again two weeks later at a party in San Diego, where she was convinced to get in the back of an SUV with the same friend from the previous party and go to someone’s townhouse. She said after consuming three beers she was buzzed and was trying to sober up.
The woman then said may have blacked out because she doesn’t remember part of the evening, but when she came to both Winslow and his friend were assaulting her.
“I said, ‘Stop, stop, just stop,’” she said, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Another person in the room reportedly was filming the incident, and Winslow only relented when his friend said they should stop.
After hearing her testimony, Elias made the order for Winslow to stand trial on charges of forcible rape and the rape of an unconscious person.
Winslow has also been accused of kidnapping and raping a 54-year-old hitchhiker in March and a 58-year-old homeless woman in May and is bound to stand trial for those incidents.
His latest accuser said she came forward after learning about the charges filed against Winslow earlier this year.
Winslow, who last played in the NFL in 2013, has denied all charges against him.
