A former N.F.L. player whose father is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has been convicted of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman last year.

Former NFL star Kellen Winslow Jr., 35, was convicted on Monday of raping a 58-year-old homeless woman in Encinitas last May by a jury in Southern California.

Winslow was also found guilty of indecent exposure toward the woman and of lewd conduct. 

Prosecutor Dan Owens said evidence includes GPS locations showing Winslow's presence where victims say they encountered him and DNA tests showing traces of his semen on blood-stained pants from one victim.  

The five women testified that they didn't know Winslow was famous when they met him.  

'Kellen Winslow took what he wanted; he took what he wanted not from one, not from two, but from three women,' Owens said during the trial, as quoted by Cleveland's NBC affiliate.  

Owens asked jurors to judge Winslow 'by who he is, not who his father is.'

Winslow faces 3-8 years in prison on the rape conviction, though he could face a larger sentence if the jury comes back with a second rape conviction. He also faces six months on the misdemeanor charges. The judge will decide the term at a sentencing hearing. The charge also requires registration as a sex offender.
