Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. will be retried on the 8 remaining counts that were not decided in his rape case, according to official.

Winslow Jr. was convicted on 3 of the 12 total charges, which included 1 charge of felony forcible rape, although he was found not guilty of 1 count of lewd conduct.

However, the jury was deadlocked on the 8 remaining charges brought upon Winslow Jr, which were allegations that he raped 2 other women and exposed himself to 2 other women.

Prosecutors have announced that they will be trying the other 8 charges in a retrial that is set to being later in 2019. Jury selection will formally begin in September.

Winslow, 35, who was convicted of rape last week, is now facing up to 9 years in prison, but could be facing more time depending on how the 8 other charges pan out in court.

Winslow was arrested back in June 2018 as officials say he kidnapped and raped 2 transient women in two separate incidents, with one taking place in March and the other taking place in May.

A 3rd woman came forward claiming that Winslow raped her 15 years ago while she was unconscious. Winslow was also accused of exposing himself to two other women in the past.

Winslow did now take the stand during his trial.
