Judge Blaine Bowman told the former Buccaneers tight end that he had “two words” to describe him, and they were “sexual predator.”
I sure hope Winslow enjoys his time in prison. He 100% deserves to be there. Winslow was originally convicted of raping a 58-year-old woman, and then accepted a plea deal to avoid a retrial on several other charges.
Now, he’ll serve nearly a decade and a half behind bars for his horrific actions.
He could have done anything he wanted with his life after retiring from the NFL. Instead, he chose to prey on women and sexually abuse them. He’ll now spend the next 14 years thinking long and hard about his actions. Trust me, there’s no place other than prison where he deserves to be.
