Florida Prosecutors Offer to Drop Charges Against Robert Kraft

Robert Kraft

On Tuesday, prosecutors in Florida reportedly offered to drop charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Prosecutors would defer prosecution of Kraft if he agrees to 100 hours of community service, receives education on the harms of prostitution, undergoes screening for sexually transmitted diseases and pays court costs, Edmondson said by phone.

It's unclear if the plea deal will be accepted by Kraft or any of the other 24 men who were arrested, the Palm Beach Post noted.

If Kraft takes the case to trial and is found guilty, he faces the possible punishment of 60 days in jail and a $500 fine for each charge. Kraft pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor counts of first-degree solicitation.

"The offer of a deferred prosecution agreement with several conditions to first time offenders is standard in cases like this", Palm Beach State Attorney David Aronberg said.

However, they don't need to activate the skill on their Amazon Fire TV if they have already done that on their Amazon Echo. New Apple Music subscribers can get a 3-Month Free Trial to access 50 million songs from all major record labels.

In return, the charges of soliciting prostitution would be dropped. Ten parlours have been closed and employees have also been charged.

Kraft is alleged to have visited Orchids of Asia Day Spa, just one of a collection of spas in South Florida that were under investigation in a probe into human trafficking, where he paid cash to engage in sex acts. Judges then issued warrants allowing them to secretly install cameras inside the spas to record what transpired.

According to the police report, Kraft was at the spa the day before and the morning of New England's 37-31 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. His team then won the Super Bowl in Atlanta, the Patriots' sixth National Football League championship under his ownership.

Terms of the proposed deal were first reported by Wall Street Journal.

"For a team owner to engage in sexual exploitation is incompatible with the NFL's personal conduct policy".
