Prosecutors drop charge against Patriots owner Robert Kraft in solicitation case

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Florida prosecutors dropped a misdemeanor charge against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Thursday after courts blocked their use of video that allegedly shows him paying for massage parlor sex.

Palm Beach State Attorney Dave Aronberg will explain the decision during an online press conference later Thursday.

Palm Beach County court records show that the owner and manager of the Orchids of Asia Day Spa are still facing numerous felony charges related to running a house of prostitution.

The Florida 4th District Court of Appeal found last month that Jupiter police violated the rights of Kraft and the other customers when they secretly installed video cameras inside massage rooms at the spa in early 2019. The court then blocked use of the video footage at trial.

The recordings, which have not been made public, are the only known evidence the men paid for sex. It could not be immediately determined if the charges against the other men have also been dropped, but that is likely.

Prosecutors decided this week not to appeal that decision to the Florida Supreme Court, saying a loss there could have "broader, negative implications" on future law enforcement investigations beyond the Kraft case.

Kraft's attorneys have already filed a motion asking that the recordings be destroyed so they could never be released to the public. They said Kraft might be willing to pay the state's costs if anyone challenges a destruction order.

Kraft, 79, could still face suspension or other punishment from the National Football League.

In other surprising news, water is wet.

 

The ruling class has a different set of rules. Always have.

I’m glad he got off (on the charges, not on the table)

Good.

Law enforcement should have something better to do than crack down on 79 year old widowers trying to remind themselves why they're still going on

Please. Thousands of people have been setting fire to structures   throwing projectiles at Police Officers,  destroying businesses, vandalizing pretty much everything, and half the country doesn't give a ****. An 80 year old Billionaire widower getting a handy at some Jupiter, Fl rub and tug doesn't even ******* register.

 

Grow up.

Unless there was something other than consenting adults agreeing to this stuff then who really cares.  You have to wonder why the FBI would make a case like this public other than for PR reasons, or maybe to blackmail a billionaire?  Who knows.

I was kinda hoping he'd get convicted on one hand just because of who he is, but what they did is not really the way we want law enforcement to work either.

Pretty disgusting that Kraft can get away with sex crimes involving human trafficking and meanwhile @joewilly12 is still barred from loitering in the shower room at the Rutgers athletic facility.

Stop. There’s not one thing that says he was part of a trafficking ring. He was a horny old rich guy that was getting a wank from a old asian lady. If anything it should be a fine.

Rick Scott’s FEC report is going to show an extra hundred million and four Pats season tickets next month. That’s a beefy enough fine. 😂😂

Sheesh.  That's an awfully strong response to an AP article.  

Those other topics are meant for the clubs (or nowhere) on JN, Captain.  This one was relevant to the NFL forum.

Can’t speak for Shane but @CTM would never take part in anything like that. He won’t even eat in a restaurant if the waitress is over 30.

Early on things were pointing in the right direction. Looked like they were going to lay it down on him and things would explode in his face. Stiff penalty was coming. In the end he's satisfied.
