SAN DIEGO (KGTV and CNS) -- Opening statements will likely begin Thursday morning in the retrial of Kellen Winslow II, who is charged with raping a woman in Encinitas and an unconscious teen in Scripps Ranch in 2003.

Winslow was previously convicted of raping a homeless woman and exposing himself to two others.

After a week of deliberations, the Vista jury found Winslow guilty of raping a woman in Encinitas and exposing himself to two others, but deadlocked on eight other charges. Those charges included rape and kidnapping in connection with two other women.

Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman declared a mistrial on those counts.

The 35-year-old son of former San Diego Chargers legend Kellen Winslow was acquitted of committing lewd conduct in front of Jane Doe 5 on a separate occasion.

The jury was unable to reach consensus on rape and kidnapping charges involving a 54-year-old hitchhiker allegedly targeted last March in Encinitas, and a 17- year-old girl who was allegedly raped in 2003 at a Scripps Ranch house party.
