On Tuesday, Florida prosecutors reportedly offered to drop charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and the other men who got caught up in a prostitution and human trafficking sting that was focused on massage parlors in the area.
The Wall Street Journal reports that prosecutors offered a deferred prosecution agreement that would require them to complete an education course about prostitution, complete 100 hours of community service, screen for sexually transmitted diseases and pay a portion of court costs.
Less than 24 hours later and Kraft has made his decision. The 77-year-old owner has chosen to not take that deal and have his day in court, according to CNN.
Kraft has since denied through a spokesman that he committed a crime, “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity,” his spokesman said.
Kraft is said to have visited the Day Spa twice to receive paid sexual acts, even on the same day as his New England Patriots got set to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.
