Prostitution charges may be dropped if Robert Kraft accepts ‘deferred prosecution’ deal

Prostitution charges may be dropped if Robert Kraft accepts ‘deferred prosecution’ deal

But sources tell us there's "absolutely no way" Patriots owner and accused rub-and-tug recipient Robert Kraft will take the no-plea deal that Florida prosecutors are offering in his prostitution-solicitation case.

Kraft's deal offer was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. The case against Kraft is scheduled for a March 28 hearing. In court documents obtained by TMZ, it states that "The defendant Robert Kraft hereby pleads not guilty to all charges and requests a non-jury trial in the above-styled cause", which follows a public statement the Patriots owner made denying any wrongdoing.

Kraft's attorney Jack Goldberger did not immediately return a call seeking comment, and Patriots spokesman Stacey James refused comment.

It is unclear whether Kraft will accept the agreement.

As part of a crackdown on illicit massage parlors and human trafficking, about 300 men were charged and 10 massage parlors were shuttered in multiple counties between Palm Beach and Orlando.

Police said they have video of Hua Zhang's employees performing various sex acts with two dozen customers. At the first visit, on Saturday January 19, Kraft paid for a threesome in which two women 'manipulated his genitals'.

The second visit took place hours before the Pats appeared - and won - the AFC Championship game in Kansas City, a victory that set the stage for their eventual Super Bowl win, the sixth in team's history, according to court records and Globe reporting.

If Kraft accepted the deal and charges are dropped, he could still be punished by the National Football League under the personal conduct policy. The documents said numerous workers were forced to live at the spas and were not allowed to leave without an escort.

Police authorities and prosecutors have talked about the case in terms of "human trafficking".

Kraft's wife of many decades, Myra Hiatt Kraft, died in 2011 of ovarian cancer.
