Florida Prosecutors Offer Robert Kraft Deal Over Solicitation Charges

Sexual exploitation survivors and organizations are appealing to the National Football League to ban Robert Kraft from team ownership if he is found guilty of soliciting prostitution.

But at this point, in order to have the two misdemeanor charges against him dropped, he must admit that he would have been convicted.

Prosecutors in Florida are offering to drop charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and some other men snared in a prostitution sting, but only if the men admit they would have been found guilty at trial, according to the Wall Street Journal and Palm Beach Post.

Furthermore, Kraft would have to perform 100 hours of community service, submit to an STD test, take a class on prostitution, and pay court fees, in a deal that also been offered to the other men that were caught in the sting.

It isn't clear whether Mr. Kraft and others would accept such a condition. Edmondson said none have accepted so far. It's a standard deal for first-time offenders, Edmondson said.

Authorities said Kraft had visited a spa in Jupiter, Florida, on January 19 and 20 and received sexual services in exchange for money, with the last visit coming on the same day he watched his Patriots defeat the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City. Authorities say they filmed Kraft visiting a spa in Jupiter, Fla. on January 19 and 20, during which time he paid for sexual services.

Kraft purchased the Patriots in 1994 and owns a property in Palm Beach.

He has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to appear in court on March 28.

His attorney, Jack Goldberger, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
