Florida prosecutors offer Patriots owner Robert Kraft deal to drop solicitation charges

Patriots owner Robert Kraft might not be convicted for solicitation of prostitution after all.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Kraft was offered a deal by authorities in Palm Beach County, Fla. where he wouldn't face prosecution for soliciting prostitution in exchange for an admission that he could be proven guilty in a court of law. If he didn't engage in ANY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY, why would he admit he could have been found guilty?

It's not known whether Kraft or the others will accept the conditions of the diversionary program, which includes completing 100 hours of community service, screening for sexually transmitted diseases, completing a course about prostitution and paying $5,000 per count.

Kraft is facing two misdemeanor charges of soliciting prostitution after he was charged in the wide-sweeping sting in Florida involving sex acts at several day spas.

50% Americans believe the Mueller probe is a 'witch hunt'
Wow! A Suffolk/USA Today Poll, just out, states, "50% of Americans AGREE that Robert Mueller's investigation is a Witch Hunt". Surveys have consistently shown that a strong majority of Americans think President Donald Trump should stop tweeting .

Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg said Tuesday on Twitter that the offer to first-time offenders "is standard in cases like this". Kraft is among more than 200 people, police say, who engaged in sex acts with employees of targeted massage parlors in South Florida.

But police said they have Kraft on surveillance video entering the day spa, paying for services and receiving oral sex on two occasions, including on the day the Patriots played in the AFC Championship Game.

Kraft has been issued a summons to appear in court March 27 for his arraignment. The NFL has not taken any action against him but has said its personal conduct policy "applies equally to everyone in the NFL" and it will handle "this allegation in the same way we would handle any issue under the policy".
