Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. said the accusations of sexual assault brought against him were a “money grab” after only a few minutes in court Tuesday.
The judge postponed Tuesday’s hearing by two weeks.
“My NFL friends and family and just my regular friends and family, they know who I am – I’m an innocent guy. I’m an innocent man,” Winslow, 35, said walking out of the courtroom.
When asked about how he processes the allegations, Winslow said, “It’s a money grab. Unfortunately, that’s the society we live in now.”
In September, a judge was set to hear evidence against Winslow, but his hearing was pushed back until October 15 so he could recover from a surgery, a judge said.
She remembered seeing a man standing in front of her while Winslow had sex with her, she testified. A third person was filming.
During that hearing, the judge said Winslow would be formally arraigned on October 30.
His arraignment is now scheduled for November 15.
