Prosecutors in Florida reportedly offered to drop the prostitution charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Over 100 people were charged last month in connection with a months-long investigation into a prostitution ring being run out of day spas across central Florida.
According to the Wall Street Journal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss the solicitation charges against Kraft and the other men if they admit that they would have been found guilty at trial. In addition, they would be required to complete an educational course on prostitution, perform one hundred hours of community service, pay for court costs, and get screened for sexually transmitted diseases.
A spokesman for the state attorney’s office told the Journal that the plea offer is standard for first-time offenders. It is unclear if any of the men have taken the deal.
Kraft is due in court to be arraigned on March 28th and has claimed that he is innocent.
