Attorneys for Robert Kraft set to challenge sex video

April 25, 2019 - 11:12 am

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Attorneys for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft are scheduled to ask a judge to throw out video recordings that police say show him twice paying for sex at a Florida massage parlor.

Kraft's attorneys are expected to tell Judge Leonard Hanser on Friday that Jupiter police violated the 77-year-old's constitutional rights when they installed video cameras in the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in January. In court documents, they write that a prostitution investigation did not "warrant the eye-popping invasions that occurred here."

Palm Beach County prosecutors have not replied in court documents and declined to comment.

Kraft and 25 other men were charged with paying for sex acts at the spa. Prosecutors originally said human trafficking might be involved, but have retracted that.

Kraft has pleaded not guilty.
