New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft could be going to jail on a charge that would carry with it a five-year prison sentence in his solicitation case.
It’s been months since the last reports about Robert Kraft’s solicitation case. Now, it turns out that the embattled New England Patriots owner is facing greater potential consequences for his alleged actions at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa last February. Kraft was linked to an undercover sting operation targeting several Florida area massage parlors that had been providing illicit services to customers. Aside from him, there are more than 20 males implicated in the crime sting.
Several months back, a judge tossed out video evidence that supposedly showed Kraft paying for and then receiving illegal illicit services from two different massage parlor workers, on the grounds that police did not have a lawful warrant to place the hidden cameras within the facilities.
The prosecutors are asking for the misdemeanor charges to be converted into felony charges. If that happens, Kraft could go to jail for up to five years. He hasn’t commented on this yet, but when he did comment the allegations he explained:
“In deference to the judicial process, I have remained silent these past several weeks. To correct some of the misinformation surrounding this matter, my attorney made his first public comments on Friday night. I would like to use this opportunity to say something that I have wanted to say for four weeks. I am truly sorry, I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fan and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.
“Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing. The last think I would ever want to do is disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women; my morals and my should were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as a partner for 50 years. As I move forward, I hope to continue to use the platform with which I have been blessed to help others and to try to make a difference. I expect to be judged not by my words but by my actions. And through those actions, I hope to regain your confidence and your respect.”
