Trump-loving New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is being offered a deal in which Florida prosecutors drop solicitation charges against him — but only if he admits that he would have been found guilty had his case been taken to court.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the deal, in addition to asking Kraft to admit he would have been found guilty, also requires “completion of an education course about prostitution, completion of 100 hours of community service, screening for sexually transmitted diseases and payment of some court costs.”
The Journal’s report describes the admittance of probable guilt as an “unusual” clause and it is not yet clear if Kraft will agree to it, especially after his attorneys have insisted that he engaged in no illegal activity when he went to a Florida day spa that’s been caught up in a human trafficking and prostitution investigation.
“Prosecutors alleged they saw Mr. Kraft, 77 years old, enter Orchids of Asia Day Spa, located in a small strip mall, on two occasions and saw him pay cash and receive sex acts,” notes the Journal. “He was identified in a traffic stop after his first visit on Jan. 19, when he was the passenger in a vehicle, and visited the spa again the next day, before the Patriots played the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.”
