Kraft will not accept prosecution’s offer

As expected, Patriots owner Robert Kraft will not be accepting an offer that would result in pending charges of solicitation of prostitution being dismissed.

CNN reports that Kraft won’t be entering into a deal that would see the charges disappear in exchange for an acknowledgement that, if prosecuted, he would have been convicted.

T.J. Quinn of ESPN.com previously reported that the request for an admission of a guilty verdict is a “non-starter” for Kraft.

Kraft, who is due to be arraigned on March 28, presumably needs a full and complete exoneration in order to avoid punishment from the Commissioner under the Personal Conduct Policy. Given the evidence as characterized by publicly-filed affidavits, Kraft’s lawyers could attack various technical flaws in the investigation, and they could pursue the more fundamental argument that there is no proof that solicitation as defined under Florida law occurred during Kraft’s interactions with a pair of Florida residents who worked at a day spa in Palm Beach County.

If Kraft digs in and fights and ultimately secures a dismissal on the merits, it will be difficult for the league to justify punishing him. Thus, unless the prosecution will offer him a full and complete dismissal, he may have no choice but to fight.

  1. This is going to be hysterical. lets have this all play out in court and the NFL should seriously considering forcing a sale of his team. Sterling lost his NBA team, but Kraft has done so much more….
    He is getting charged when he said not much happened… what else has he lied to the nfl about?

  2. Why would “the prosecution will offer him a full and complete dismissal”?

    They can simply drop the charges.

    To make an offer implies they want something in return.

    It’s looking more and more like Kraft should stand pat.

  3. I don’t care if he gets fully exonerated or not, his actions are a blackeye to the league and should have the book thrown just by having his name invovled. Fines, suspensions, and forfeited draft picks. Yes, this has to do with the team playing on the field, it’s their damn owner. Without the owner, there would be no team.

  4. So in other words, state feels they cannot win the case in court so they offer this “deal” to plead guilty to a misdemeanor. It’s a no brainer for Kraft. The damage has already been done with the arrest was made public. It’s not like he’s facing jailtime.

  5. No way at all, will Kraft win an acquital, or complete dismissal of charges.
    As the old saying goes “the tape dont lie”

  6. Can not wait for Goodell to drop the sledgehammer down on this disgrace.
    The guy just keeps on tarnishing thd Shield….. over and over again.
    Goodbye 2020 1st round draft pick

  7. Of course he won’t. Another rich guys who just throws money at his problems to make them go away. It’s about time they start playing by the same rules we all need to abide by.

  8. I gotta say – let the videotape make the judgement call.

    If it has him doing what is said – then fine, throw whatever punishment there is at him.

    But if there is no video of him doing what the Police said….which is what Robert Kraft is saying, that he didn’t do it…then there will be consequences to that as well.

    Someone is lying….I’d rather find out who than see a plea deal.

  9. Because this is a high profile incident, any deal that results in charges being dropped is going to get intense scrutiny. Hard to see how this one can get covered up and buried.

  10. Last line makes no sense. What does criminal prosecution have to do with whether or not the NFL doles out punishment? Zeke was NEVER arrested and got 6 games.

  11. Still don’t understand why this guy was going to a strip mall massage parlor for a happy ending when he has all the money in the world to call up the highest dollar escort to his hotel room. If the video really exists, this kind of stupidity deserves this kind of take down.

  12. could care less if he enjoyed the benefits of a good old fashion day spa. However I care deeply about belichick’s team and I think this little episode helps us especially if hapless goodell sticks his nose in. belichick teams thrive on this stuff. love it.

  13. He’s on video getting some work done in a massage parlor but he won’t publicly admit that he did it. Take it to trial Robert! It always works in the movies-

  14. Why is everyone so determined to assess guilt prior to any evidence being shown? Someone said there’s a tape but yet none of us have seen it. None of us have seen what they have on any of the defendants. Must be amazing living in your glass houses and being able to cast stones so freely. If he is found to be 100% innocent I hope you will be so vehement in exhonerating him as you are at condemning him.

  15. The video proves NOTHING. He’s charged with offering money for sex. The video shows the latter, but not the “offering the money” part (unless there’s clear audio of him making a solicitation of said services). That’s kind of crucial, don’t you think?

    He is saying he’s innocent of “solicitation”, not necessarily the sex (if there is any) in any video. So, no, the video is not conclusive evidence of anything.

  16. Good for him. What a weak position by the prosecution. Either this is serious enough to go to trial or its not. How can anyone speculate on what would happen at a theoretical trial? This should not be done in public. Shame on the government.

  17. Botched investigation. Over zealous prosecutor with his eyes on a higher political office bit off more than he can chew. The state has no case. All of the guys charged will walk free and clear.

    The fact that there are no human trafficking charges in play really destroys the states case.

    It’s a wrap.

  18. If Kraft digs in and fights and ultimately secures a dismissal on the merits, it will be difficult for the league to justify punishing him.

    Zeke got 6 games without any prosecution… It wasn’t hard for the league to justify punishing him…

  19. Doesn’t matter. Scum is as scum does. He did what he did, whether it’s proven in a court of law or he gets off on some technicality. Remember when Ryan Braun got his piss test thrown out because the chain of custody was broken? It didn’t mean that he didn’t take steroids.

    So ironic that Kraft gets caught on his first time doing this.

  20. The video has no audible. They can’t prove it wasn’t consensual.

    The limo traffic stop was illegal.

    The prosecution is in trouble that is why they offered a deal.

  21. They don’t have a case it was a hype what happend to all the Human tracking talk pb sheriffs just wanted some face time on tv lol all this is over two alleged misdemeanors what a joke and waste of tax dollars.

    Dude, they have you on video. A full blown trial will not end well…

    ———-

    The last time he went full blown ended pretty well for him.

    I think the experience got to his head.

  23. Kraft’s wealth and arrogance makes him feel like he can buy his way out of anything. His superteam of lawyers will keep throwing motions and delays at this case until it ends up costing the state so much someone from higher up will say let him go.
    If Kraft would’ve just spent a couple grand he could’ve had a hooker delivered to him and none of this wouldn’t have happened.
    Here’s hoping TMZ gets a hold of this tape and release it.

  24. “we can’t prove our case so why don’t you go ahead and plead guilty [so that we don’t go to trial]” HAHAHA this is law-by-romper-room.

  25. Good for him. He was targeted. I live in PB county and the events that led up to this very shady. I dont agree with what he did but he was definitely targeted.

  26. All the people here calling him arrogant or stupid need to think about this for just a minute. What if the suposed tape isn’t as clear as has been claimed? What if their case isn’t as solid as they’d like it to be? Why would they have made him an offer if they were holding aces? Prosecutors would love nothing more than to nail a high profile billionare in a case like this so there is a reason why they made him an offer.

  27. The offer does not mean the Prosecution has a weak case. They offered the “deal” to 24 of the first time offenders/men in this case as a matter of policy. The deal was standard policy and it shows that Kraft is being treated the same as other’s previously and specifically in this case. He should make apologies, take the deal.

    —————

    Force the sale of his team for paying for the services of a prostitute? Please. If you got rid of all the players and owners who have done that in their life you might not have enough guys to make up one team.

  29. An official got on TV and told the world that all those arrested for solicitation are on tape committing the act. Robert Kraft is a public figure. His reputation has already taken a hit. If the official’s statement is false, not only should Kraft fight the charges, but he should sue for defamation.

  30. I honestly think it’s starting to mentally lose it,

    They have you doing this twice.

    On Video…

    What planet is he living on where he doesn’t think he’ll be convicted of this, or TMZ gets a hold of the tape?

  31. Some people believe they are above the law. It appears Kraft is one of them. The police say they have him on tape selecting sex, twice. If so, the prosecutor will show the tapes at trial.

    For those of you saying the police don’t have much of a case simply don’t understand the situation. There were over 50 people charged. That could mean 50 separate trials. Trails cost taxpayer money. Simply the prosecutors officers is trying to cut down on expense of going to trail for that number of people. I imagine many people will except the deal. People like Kraft have the most to lose and won’t except the deal. This is probably not going to end well for Kraft.

  32. This is just the US justice system at work . It is only a matter of time before his high price lawyers give to the right charity or talk to the right person and everything will be settled and if Vegas has odds on it whether a deal is agree to that include a non disclosure clause and no admission of guilt that where I am placing my money. They probably have this paper work already in most high price legal as standard forms. It we like hey Mortamore one of our rich clients got caught doing “fill in the blank” ……. Get out the non disclosure no admission of guilt form.

  33. Just because he rejected this deal doesn’t mean it’s going to trial. They may still offer the charges be dropped with no admission of guilt provided he does the community service and takes the courses. He might take that deal.

    ================================
    Fine and suspension seems fair given precedent set by Irsay. Draft pick(s) is over reaching (though wouldn’t be surprised one bit). If exonerated suspension comes off the table. Fine for inappropriate conduct in public seems appropriate in that scenario.

  35. Did the prosecutor get their law license from a box of cracker jacks? If they actually have him on tape “in the act” make them show it in court and if it’s such an open and shut case why would you need the plea deal in the first place?

    Apparently some people believe the police have never lied to anyone ever about having evidence on someone that they really didn’t just to trick them into confessing.

  38. Unless they have Kraft on video saying he is paying for sex, the video of a sex act alone isnt enough. Kraft will argue the sex act was consensual or otherwise initiated by the worker.

    With this large if an operation and with the high wealth clientele, there is no way they have money being exchanged at the spa or any statements being made about what would be done and for how much.

    This is all arranged outside the spa. The police need Kraft and the other 20 some guys to confess that this was prostitution so they can take down the ringleader.

    It doesn’t. The conviction will only go to the severity of the punishment head Kraft’s way.

  40. Running a red light is a misdemeanor. In Florida, if you run a red light and have no priors, you are offered the choice of trial, or paying a fine, going to traffic school and getting no points on your license.
    This is the same thing.
    If the reporting of this offer was a “leak”, and not public record, it most certainly came from defense attorney.

    1) Wasn’t Brady already suspended 4 games for that (despite the fine in the rules being recommended at $25,000)? Just checking.
    2) I don’t think many people doubt why Kraft was in there. However, the early narrative around human trafficking seems to be squashed. That was the thing that bothered me. That was false.

    He is saying he’s innocent of “solicitation”, not necessarily the sex (if there is any) in any video. So, no, the video is not conclusive evidence of anything.
    ***********************************************************************************

    Provided the video exists & there is no audio, Kraft will survive this. His lawyers will spin this like Kraft is a 70yr old stud with needs.

    But, Kraft better have something to help Gooddell stomach this being in the news.

  50. A couple of things: when this broke a few weeks ago there were rumblings that “an even bigger celebrity” was also busted. Who is that? Also, what kind of nonsense is this? “We won’t charge you with anything if you admit that we totally could’ve won in court”? I’ve never heard of such a weird agreement. Is this a standard practice in that neck of the woods?

    I believe that the rich & famous live remarkably different lives than you and I – their money and/or fame buy them access to special treatment all the time (e.g. the college entrance scandal). However, this is a case where I feel like there are much bigger scandals to look into with this case, such as the connections of the business owner.

  51. If you have been accused you still have to face a penalty under the Personal Conduct Policy…if you let your name come up in any way shape or form in any type of police matter you should be held accountable….

    Think about what you are saying. You can’t punish people for accusations only. There has to be some merit to them. The league could decide there is enough merit to punish in this case, but you can’t blindly punish players or owners based on accusations that may be completely false.

    The deal is somewhat normal. Most first time offenders are offered a deal for the charges to be dropped. Prosecuting hundreds of these cases to the full extent is expensive and most of the offenders are happy to sign off as long as there are no charges on their record. That doesn’t work for Kraft. He will be punished if he admits it.

  55. If there’s no evidence of Kraft knowing about a human trafficking ring, strike a deal that turns the charges into misdemeanors, pay a hefty fine, and end this nonsense. All he did was get a handy from a willing participant (the lady was over 40) for cash.

    It has nothing to do with what the NFL will or wont do. When it comes to discipline NFL has a history of being so inconsistent that its a spin of the wheel no matter what goes on from this point. Also, the damage to Krafts reputation is a done deal no matter what goes on at this point. Frankly the prosecution has left him as a guy with nothing to lose and thats the toughest opponent of all.

    =======================
    It is what it is. That said, there’s so much wrong about this I don’t even know where to start. In short, allow me to summarize … accusation = guilt.

  66. I suspect that law enforcement and the prosecution are not eager to see their investigative methods brought to light. I suspect that ultimately the prosecutor will withdraw charges but reserve the ability to re-file them. That way, Kraft can’t say he was found not guilty, and the prosecutor avoids having things exposed. The NFL of course, can do whatever it wants, prosecution or no. Just ask Zeke Elliott.

  69. The effort to take down the johns was limited since they know they could get the guys to accept these offers not to prosecute.

    They didn’t expect a billionaire willing to pay millions on defense lawyers to tear apart the evidence. The video will not be admissible. The traffic stop will not be admissible. They will not be able to prevent ANY evidence. They will drop this shortly.

    I don’t know about the Zeke comparison, but did they interview witnesses in that one? They would try to interview the witnesses/ masseuses in this one. Let’s see if they cooperate.

    If you call the Constitution a “technicality”. MANY people get legitimate massages. People should not have to worry about the government putting camera’s in the massage room, locker rooms, dressing rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms…. etc.

  71. Ezekiel Elliott lost 6 games because of an accusation. If Kraft is found not guilty, shouldn’t he be punished by the NFL accordingly? I mean, a not guilty verdict is worse than a simple accusation. A not guilty verdict means there was enough evidence for a charge, and arrest, and a trial. Zeke’s case never went past “he said she said” and they still dropped the hammer on him.

    But to avoid those charges Ben instead did pay out a settlement. Kraft on the other hand is refusing settlements to avoid charges, he appears to prefer his day in court.

  76. Big Ben was acquitted of rape charges, and Tom Brady was not convicted of anything in Deflate Gate. Yet both players were suspended multiple games. Similarly, Kareem Hunt was not even charged but he has been suspended 8 games for shoving a woman. It seems that if Goodell wants to, he can issue disciplinary action against Kraft without needing a conviction. Goodell did not suspend Beat Mode after he pleaded guilty to reckless driving after he was arrested and charged with drunk driving. The question is whether Goodell wants to do it, not whether he can. He can discipline people without any conviction and he can refuse to discipline players or owners when there is clear evidence of wrongdoing.

  77. He’s a wealthy white man in America… He’ll buy his way around our “Criminal Justice System” because that’s the standard of how things work here.

    It’s a broken system and it isn’t changing anytime soon so Kraft will likely be just fine (unfortunately, but unsurprisingly). Throw enough money at it and he’ll make it go away, because America.

  78. There are questions as to whether the Jupiter Police have any real evidence other than “he said – she said”?
    There is a reported video of Kraft allegedly doing “something” considered by Jupiter Police to be illegal, at which point his legal team has had to of seen this – again “alleged” video evidence & determined it’s much to do about NOTHING !
    Kraft will gladly pay to keep his name clear of ANY criminal act, however it’s not his reputation he’s trying to preserve -that reputation is already tarnished due to multiple accusations concerning cheating by his team over the years whether baseless or not.

  79. The outright arrogance of Kraft and the Patriots in general is nauseating. I cannot wait until Tommy Boy retires and they’re back to being the same old Patriots… god I can’t wait

  80. what kind of a BS offer is that? so we’ll drop the charges if you tell people that we could have gotten you? I’ve never heard of anything like that in my life. Is that an offer made to billionaire defendants or something…and if they have him on video and dead to rights, why make such a bizarre offer in the first place? so weird.

  81. Whomever has the most expensive lawyer will win this

    And at the end if it and all it’s long delays kraft will just give the team to his son just like he would have soon done anyway

  82. Kraft on the other hand is refusing settlements to avoid charges, he appears to prefer his day in court.
    _____________

    No, I think the job of Kraft’s lawyers will be to prevent this from going to court.

  83. I think it’s hilarious if the haters can’t beat Kraft, The Hoodie , The GOAT # 12 and company on the football field well let’s try and take them to court and hopefully we can make him sell the team !

  84. God, you people need to get the human trafficking out of your heads. There was none in this case. Look at FL and the way they throw human trafficking around in order to secure funds to crap like this, it’s bull. They spent all this time and money on what??? There’s reason the FBI and ICE have backed clear away from this, there was no trafficking involved here. Period. Sexual predator??? Please the guy paid for a service by someone who was willing to give it.

    Refusing settlements to stay out of court instead instsing on going to court is an interesting strategy for staying out of court. Big Bens strategy for staying out of court is looking much more effective than Krafts will be if thats really the goal to stay out of court.

  86. It’s pathetic that this is what it has come to for the fans of all of the loser teams in the NFL year after year. They think the only chance their teams stand of ever beating the Pats is for Tom Brady to retire or for the owner of the team to be forced to sell it because he got a handy. Wow!

  87. With smart lawyers Kraft can beat the charge. They will attack the methods of installing cameras in the massage parlor as illegal. People should not be taped without their knowledge. They will attack methods of evidence gathering. they will attack illegal stoppages after massage visits by police…..

    NEVER ever talk to the police. Never admit anything. Kraft knows this.

    This can work because the original charges were supporting illegal sex trafficking. With lawyers proving there was no trafficking involved since both older women have been there for years, state’s case is falling apart. They suppress the video, charge illegal taping and false charges and Kraft walks.

    Watch it happen.

    Patriots sure are quick to defend members of the Patriots. I wonder why didn’t defend Zeke Elliot?
    ===================
    Many did. It wasn’t that hard to see the rail job Elliot was bound to receive.

  89. Multiple players in recent years have been charged with solicitation. None of them has ever been fined or suspended. NONE.

    Doesn’t matter. Players are a muse for our entertainment. Owners should be held to a higher Shandard

  90. With smart lawyers Kraft can beat the charge. They will attack the methods of installing cameras in the massage parlor as illegal. People should not be taped without their knowledge.

    Bro, this is the police sting. Everything about it is legal.

    They’ve been doing it forever successfully. They just never imagined Robert Kraft would show up.

  91. Some really hopeful Patriot fans here.

    Or people that don’t trust police whatsoever. Or both…

    One thing for sure, Robert Kraft is on video asking for something to be taken care of by a plant for the police department who looked and acted like a masseuse who gives happy endings.

    The only way we all win here is by going to the tape.

  92. Remember this was just the local police investigating, not the FBI or Immigration – for supposed international human trafficking. (??) Was their evidence gathered legally? That seems to be what the prosecution is worried about. If the video is inadmissible and the traffic stop as well, they’ve got no case.

    Just like we don’t need a video to know Ben was guilty as hell. Or do we …
    ========
    Facts are very important in life so let me share some to enlighten your shallow soul. Ben never had charges filed against him unlike Mr Kraft. Pay attention son facts can help you.
    ———————–
    So in short, facts are relevant for Kraft but not Big Ben. I mean if we don’t need the audio to be considered gullible do we really need charges to avoid the same fate with BigBen? Kraft was there. So was Ben. That seems to pass your litmus test with Kraft. It seems fair to use the same standard for Ben.

    The only way we ALL win is by going to the tape? Let’s just imagine this was your loved one. Someone in your family.

    Regardless of what actually transpired, if evidence was gathered against you in an illegal fashion, that’s irrelevant to you? Is this America? Or the politburo?

  95. At first this was a human trafficking sting that caught a bunch of rich guys at a massage parlor with allegedly, Asian women working as modern day slaves. Then we find out that the only two women Kraft interacted with were two middle aged white women who are both Citizens and long time residents of FL.

    That is a huge change in the “Facts of the case.” So tell me again why we should believe the rest of the story as currently told? Wait for the trial.

    I think you are missing the point here! Yes! It was a trafficking sting, and that may or may not be an ongoing investigation, but in the meantime, Kraft, and the others got caught up in it, they broke a law and were served warrants for the crime, no matter the severity of those crimes. That don’t change just because we don’t hear anything further about the trafficking sting.
