Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged in Florida prostitution sting

Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged in Florida prostitution sting”

Kraft has not been arrested, according to the Jupiter Police Department. The two charges he faces are misdemeanors. "Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further", his spokesperson said.

Robert Kraft, the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots, faces misdemeanor charges of soliciting a prostitute after he was twice videotaped in a sex act at a shopping-center massage parlor in Florida, police said Friday. The names of 25 people who were arrested for allegedly engaging in illegal activity at the spa were released on Friday, but there are supposedly 200 people who have been arrested in total.

In the broader investigation, police allege that some of the women were forced to become sex workers after obtaining work permits after emigrating from China.

San Diego Padres keep Manny Machado in the NL West
He made a modest $34 million over six seasons with the Baltimore Orioles (and a half-season with the Los Angeles Dodgers ). But adding to the confusion, another insider - USA Today's Bob Nightengale - reported the White Sox are "out" on Harper .

Since Kraft bought the Patriots 25 years ago for $172 million, the team has become the most successful franchise in the National Football League, appearing in 10 Super Bowls and winning six titles, including Super Bowl LIII on February 3. The Patriots won their first Super Bowl in 2002, defeating the St. Louis Rams under Brady, who took over early in the season for injured starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe.

The probe also involved the execution of at least eight search warrants and the seizure of cash and property assets valued in the millions. He was facing charges of soliciting prostitution, stemming from a raid on a day spa in Florida.

He also recalled seeing Kraft getting into a chauffeured vehicle at the plaza about two weeks ago, saying he waved to Kraft and the Patriots owner waved back out of the auto window. In 1996, two years after he bought the team, it made the Super Bowl under head coach Bill Parcells. He's revered in New England for saving the Patriots from moving out of the region, as well as his family's myriad philanthropic endeavors. "I'd cripple the organization, and I'd put him on sabbatical".
