New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Charged With Soliciting Prostitution

February 22, 2019

 

From Super Bowl ring to prostitution ring! New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution in Florida on Friday, and now there's a warrant for his arrest. NBC affiliate WPTV reports that the 77-year-old was caught up in a sting targeting several day spas located across Florida that resulted in charges against 25 men. "We're as deeply stunned as anyone else," said Jupiter Police Chief Daniel Kerr about Kraft's alleged involvement. However, Kerr confirmed that there is video evidence "for all the individuals being charged." A months-long investigation found that the spas, which advertised typical services like massages, were fronts for human trafficking and prostitution. Kraft was busted at the Orchids of Asia Spa in Jupiter, Florida. In addition to the Patriots, Kraft owns the New England Revolution Major League Soccer team and is a high-profile friend and supporter of President Donald Trump.
