SAN DIEGO, California - Kellen Winslow II, a former Cleveland Browns tight end, was arraigned on Thursday on a new charge, according to USA Today.
Winslow was already facing multiple rape and kidnapping charges. Now he's facing a charge in connection with forcibly raping a 17-year-old female who was unconscious at the time, according to USA Today.
The news publication said Winslow was 19 at the time of the alleged rape that happened in 2003 in San Diego.
"California law allows for certain specified sexual offenses to be charged regardless of the time of their commission under certain circumstances," deputy district attorney in San Diego Dan Owens said. "Those circumstances are met in this case...When there is a rape that occurs and the victim is under the age of 18 years old, there is no statutory time (limit) to when that can be charged. That's exactly what we have here."
USA Today said Winslow pleaded not guilty to all charges on Thursday at a preliminary hearing in San Diego County Court House.
