Prosecutors Offer to Drop Charges Against Robert Kraft in Potential Deal

WSJ: Florida Prosecutors Offer Robert Kraft Deal Over Solicitation Charges

- The Wall Street Journal is reporting that prosecutors are offering to drop solicitation charges against Robert Kraft and several other men but the men must admit they would have been proven guilty at trial.

Kraft and scores of other suspected johns were arrested last month as part of a wide-ranging investigation into prostitution and sex trafficking at a string of massage parlors in Palm Beach, Martin and other counties.

Kraft was charged with two misdemeanors after he was caught on camera allegedly trading cash for sexual favors at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla., on January 18 and January 22 - shortly before his team won its sixth Super Bowl.

The proposed deferred prosecution agreement comes with caveats: completion of an education course about prostitution, 100 hours of community service, screening for sexually transmitted diseases and payment of some court costs.

Kraft has always maintained his innocence in the case and has already entered a not guilty plea in advance of a trial.

Kraft's attorney, Jack Goldberger, did not reply to requests to comment Tuesday.

"One-hundred percent no way he's taking the deal", a source told us of Kraft.

No one has been charged with human trafficking, and both women with whom Kraft allegedly engaged - 45-year-old spa manager Lei Wang and 58-year-old spa employee Shen Mingbi - are licensed masseuses and Florida residents. Numerous women are originally from China, were forced to live in the spas and were not allowed to leave without an escort, according to investigators.

Records show Kraft visited the spa hours before the Patriots played the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. His team then won the Super Bowl in Atlanta, the Patriots' sixth National Football League championship under his ownership. Kraft, who is worth $6 billion, was videotaped engaging in sex acts before paying with a $100 bill and another bill, police said.

Kraft's wife of many decades, Myra Hiatt Kraft, died in 2011 of ovarian cancer.
