Robert Kraft Pleads Not Guilty In Prostitution Case

UPDATED: 2019/02/28 3:00PM

Robert Kraft has formally entered a not guilty plea in his prostitution case. The court documents state: “The defendant Robert Kraft hereby pleads not guilty to all charges and requests a non-jury trial in the above-styled cause.”

Kraft has also requested a non-jury trial and hired a close friend of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a lawyer in the case. Kraft is facing two misdemeanors and faces a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and attending a class in the dangers of human trafficking.

In response to the allegations that the Patriots owner solicited prostitutes at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida, Kraft made a public statement denying that he participated in any illegal activity. Officials, however, say that they have graphic surveillance footage that shows the 77-year-old businessman entering the spa on January 19th and 20th of this year and receiving sex acts in exchange for money.

If convicted, Kraft faces up to a year in jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned in the case on March 27th, 2019.
