Charges against New England Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, dropped by the Florida Supreme Court.
Robert Kraft faced trouble last year after he was caught paying for sexual favors at a spa in Jupiter, Florida. However, yesterday the in a surprising turn of events, the Florida Supreme Court dropped the misdemeanor charges against the NFL team owner.
The reason for the dropped charges were due to a judge ruling the authorities had violated Kraft’s rights by using hidden cameras. Additionally, the judge found the authorities had recklessly used the warrant to investigate Kraft as reckless.
“Although there was probable cause to make an arrest, the evidence cannot prove all legally required elements of the crime alleged and is insufficient to support a criminal prosecution,” State Attorney David Aronberg wrote in court documents.
Karft was one of 12 people that were charged during an investigation of a human traffickling and prostitution ring in Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida.
Karft is off the hook with the law, but his stance with the NFL is looking shakey at best.
Rober Kraft Faces Judgement From The NFL
Kraft may be a free man, but he is still at the mercy of the NFL.
In 2019, NFL Commisssioner, Roger Goodell, told reporters that rules relating to personal conduct in the NFL, applied to everyone.
“Commissioners. Owners. Executives. Players. Coaches. And it will be applied to everybody. But it will be done after we get all the facts and have all the information. … We will be fair and smart about it, and that’s what we will do.” Goodell said in March 2019, during a NFL meeting in Arizona.
Only time will tell if Goodell or the NFL will take any action against Kraft.
The Patriots play the Las Vegas Raiders today at 1 pm EST for Week 3 of the NFL 2020 Season.
