A newly released court document describes in detail the alleged illegal activities of Patriots owner Robert Kraft at a now-shuttered day spa in Jupiter, Fla.
The document surfaced on Twitter Monday afternoon via Danielle Waugh of CBS-12 in West Palm Beach and others (warning: details are graphic and of a sexual nature). According to the document, Kraft perpetrated his alleged acts on Jan. 19-20, meaning his second offense took place on the morning of the AFC Championship Game where the Patriots played the Chiefs in Kansas City.
Update: Olivia Hitchcock of the Palm Beach Post has details from Kraft’s alleged first offense. He went through a similar process as his second alleged offense, then got pulled over as part of a traffic stop by local police, who positively identified Kraft through his driver’s license.
Kraft allegedly entered the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, paid cash at the front desk, engaged in apparent sexual activity with an employee in a separate room, paid the employee $100, then got dressed and left. The full visit lasted approx. 14 minutes. The document’s full details gave authorities probable cause to charge Kraft with solicitation of another to commit prostitution.
If convicted, Kraft would face a maximum penalty of a year in jail, a $5,000 fine, 100 mandatory hours of community service, and an educational course on human trafficking. However, he is not required to appear in court on his appointed date of Apr. 24 or be formally arrested. (Update: Via Michele Steele, Kraft was able to provide a local address in the Palm Beach area, so he received a summons to appear in court.)
Palm Beach County state attorney Dave Aronberg told reporters in a press conference on Monday that no charges of human trafficking are currently expected to be filed against Kraft or any of the 24 other men who allegedly committed similar acts at Orchids of Asia.
