Patriots owner refuses plea deal offered by Florida prosecutors in prostitution case

Robert Kraft

The motion is an effort to make sure that the surveillance video, described as graphic and damning, isn't released if he doesn't reach a plea deal with prosecutors.

There is legitimate speculation that Kraft could prevail if the case goes to trial because of the high-powered legal team he has assembled, and the belief that "there was no probable cause to collect the evidence in the first place".

The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday reported that prosecutors offered to drop charges against Robert Kraft and others in the case if they admitted they would have been found guilty in a trial. The prosecution likely felt that Kraft's hit in the court of public opinion would be punishment enough.

It is now unknown if Kraft or the other men will accept the deal.

Authorities set up hidden cameras at the spa and, Jupiter Police Detective Andrew Sharp said, there's video evidence of all of the suspects participating in the alleged sexual acts. Kraft visited the massage parlor for sex acts on January 19 and 20, according to the documents charging him with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution.

In his letter to Cipollone, the House Oversight Committee chairman wrote that Lowell "could not answer whether Mr. Lowell added he later told the committee, "Now she always forwards official business to her White House account".

Kraft's attorneys have denied he engaged in any illegal activity.

Kraft is facing two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution for allegedly visiting the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida on two occasions earlier this year and paying for sexual favors from the massage parlor's staff.

Multiple media outlets have reported that sources close to Kraft say he has no intention of accepting such a deal, although ESPN also reports that negotiations on a plea deal continue and Kraft hasn't rejected one outright.

This last bit of information could prove critical in the way the case progresses, as Kraft is reportedly very concerned and opposed to his name being linked to accusations of sex trafficking.

There is no evidence that Kraft dealt with anyone involved in trafficking or who was a victim of trafficking; the women he interacted with had valid driver's licenses and massage therapist licenses. If indeed the women he received services from were consenting adults not forced into trafficking, it could theoretically help both fix his public image and aid his case in court.
