Robert Kraft would like nothing else but for those dreaded alleged tapes of him getting sexual favors in exchange for money to disappear forever.
Unfortunately for him, it’s not likely to happen.
This week, the New England Patriots owner took drastic actions to make sure those videos never see the light of day by filing a motion to stop the public release of those embarrassing videos.
Fight it all he wants, those vids are likely to be released at some point, so says the sheriff.
“I do think ultimately they are probably going to get released,” Martin County Sheriff William Snyder told CNBC on Thursday, a day after Kraft moved to keep police surveillance videos of him sealed.
“Once a case is over, it’s not an ongoing investigation,” Snyder said. “There has to be a specific reason not to release a public record. And the fact that there is sexual activity is not an exemption.”
Kraft was one of 25 people charged in Jupiter, Fla., on Feb. 22 in a statewide investigation into the use of massage parlors for prostitution and human trafficking.
Kraft has since pleaded not guilty and refused to take a plea deal that would reportedly require him to admit they would have been proven guilty at trial and complete community service, an education course about prostitution, a sexually transmitted diseases screening and pay for some court costs.
