Report: Florida prosecutors offer Patriots' Robert Kraft deal to drop solicitation charges

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that prosecutors in Palm Beach County, Fla. have offered New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft a chance to avoid prosecution for soliciting prostitution.

Called deferred prosecution, it would require that Kraft admit that he could be proved guilty at trial.

Kraft is not the only man charged who has been presented with this offer, the WSJ reports.

It is unclear whether Kraft will accept the agreement.

The proposed deferred prosecution agreement comes with caveats: completion of an education course about prostitution, 100 hours of community service, screening for sexually transmitted diseases and payment of some court costs.

But Kraft and his attorney would also review the evidence in the case and agree that if it were to go to trial, the state would be able to prove guilt.

Kraft has been charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution; he was one of several men charged after a months-long investigation by Jupiter police, who were looking into alleged human trafficking.

A statement from a Kraft spokesman at the time of the charges being announced proclaimed his innocence.

However, Jupiter police say they have Kraft on surveillance video entering Orchids of Asia day spa, paying for services and receiving oral sex on two occasions, including on the day of the AFC championship game.
