Police: Patriots owner Robert Kraft solicited prostitute


Recommended Posts



New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is being charged with misdemeanor solicitation of prostitution after he was twice videotaped paying for a sex act at an illicit massage parlor, police in Florida said Friday.

Jupiter police told reporters the 77-year-old Kraft hasn’t been arrested. A warrant will be issued and his attorneys will be notified. Kraft has denied wrongdoing.

Police said details about the charges against Kraft will not be released until next week.

The charge comes amid a widespread crackdown on sex trafficking from Palm Beach to Orlando. Hundreds of arrest warrants have been issued in recent days as result of a six-month investigation and more are expected. Ten spas have been closed and several people charged with sex trafficking have been taken into custody.


Uh oh.  Shouldn't be a crime though.  Mr. Kraft is a consenting adult, and most likely the individual whom he allegedly solicited for sex was a consenting adult as well.

Kraft issues an unconditional denial that there was “any illegal act.” The cops say they have a video of “the acts.”  Who’s telling the truth? Actually, they might both be.

A sex act with a consenting adult is not illegal. It only becomes a crime when there is payment, or promise of payment, for the sex act. So, unless the payment or offer of payment is also on video, as opposed to the act alone, the defense will be “I paid for a massage, and the sex was gratuitous.”  If the posted price for a massage was, for example, $60, and they can show he paid $250. Well, that’s quite a tip.  But if it’s just Kraft’s word against that of the masseuse, who is undoubtedly going to testify as part of a deal with the prosecution, it becomes a credibility contest.

I know it was probably consensual and all that. Just seems odd that a man worth $6 billion dollars can't find a willing partner without paying someone. In light of the fact that he may have fathered a child by his 39 year old girlfriend maybe $79 was a bargain. I'm definitely biased toward his organization but it sure looks like he was being sneaky. Spygate, Deflategate, Zippergate. Once a cheater, always a …….
