Robert Kraft has a chance to get out of his prostitution charges – with a catch.
According to a new report by Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal, Florida prosecutors have offered to drop the charges against Kraft and others if he admits that he would’ve been found guilty in court. The Patriots owner faces two counts of soliciting another to commit prostitution, stemming from a pair of alleged visits to the Orchids of Asia day spa in Jupiter, Fla.
Kraft has already entered a not guilty plea in the case. He’s also hired a powerful team of lawyers, including prominent Palm Beach-area attorney Jack Goldberger. Former White House lawyer William Burck also joined the case, as did Alex Spiro, who was part of the defense team for Aaron Hernandez.
His next move remains unclear. But it appears that Kraft has a chance to expunge any potential charges or convictions from his record, in exchange for admitting wrongdoing anyway. The deal would keep his record clean, but permanently imprint the presumed damage to Kraft’s public image.
