Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Charged In Prostitution Sting
Breaking news out of Jupiter, Florida that a prostitution sting has resulted in a warrant being issued for Robert Kraft, the77-year-oldd owner of the New England Patriots.
According to TMZ:
Officials say Kraft is accused of soliciting a prostitute on at least 2 separate occasions at a massage parlor in Florida roughly "a month ago."
Cops say they have obtained evidence from body cam video and surveillance that has been conducted over the last several months.
Kraft will be charged with a misdemeanor and will have to appear in court.
Multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in the operation -- including Homeland Security, the IRS, the Jupiter P.D., Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office and more.
We still don't have a lot of details about what kind of consequences Kraft will face either from the legal system or from the NFL. Even though he is only being charged with a misdemeanor, we could imagine the league coming down hard for something like this, especially given their focus on clamping down on prostitution at the Super Bowl this year.
Here is video of Jupiter Florida Police Chief Daniel Kerr confirming Kraft's involvement.
