On Thursday, lawyers for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft filed a motion seeking to suppress videos and evidence from a traffic stop related to his ongoing prostitution case.
Jupiter Police said investigators have Kraft and 24 other men on surveillance video paying for sex acts at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa.
According to court documents, Kraft paid for a threesome on Jan. 19 — with two women taking turns “manipulating his genitals.”
Once Kraft finished, the women cleaned him up and he gave them each a $100 bill.
Officials have described the case against Kraft in graphic detail … saying his first incident occurred on Jan 19. The second incident occurred on Jan. 20, the day the Patriots were playing the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.
As for incident #2 — officials describe it in the following way:
“[employee] escorted Kraft to a room identified as JPPD Cam 2. There, the two hugged each other and Kraft took off all his clothing, laid face up on the massage table and [employee] hugged him again. At approximately 1102hrs. (Employee) began manipulating Kraft’s penis and testicles and then put her head down by his penis. This went on several minutes.”
“After a few minutes, [employee] wiped Kraft in the area of his genitals with a white towel, helped him get dressed and hugged him again. Kraft gave [employee] one $100 bill plus at least one other unidentifiable bill.”
Officials say Kraft was only at the Asian massage parlor for a total of 14 minutes on January 20 — and exited to a waiting 2015 blue Bentley.
Kraft’s attorneys called the video recordings “the fruits of an unlawful sneak-and-peek search warrant that the Town of Jupiter Police Department used to spy on Mr. Kraft and others, while they were in the private rooms of a licensed spa, receiving treatment from licensed masseuses.”
“Florida resorted to the most drastic, invasive, indiscriminate spying conceivable by law enforcement – taking continuous video recordings of private massages in which customers would be stripping naked as a matter of course – in order to prosecute what are at most (according to Florida’s own allegations) misdemeanor offenses,” Kraft’s lawyers said in the filing.
The owner of the Super Bowl champions pleaded not guilty to two counts of soliciting another to commit prostitution. A hearing in the case is set for April 9.
He also requested to be tried by a jury and not a judge.
“With a jury trial, all you have to do is get a single juror to hold out for you,” said legal analyst Michael Coyne, who doubts the case will ever get that far.
