According to a new court filing, New England Patriots Owner, Robert Kraft, could be facing a felony charge, and up to five years in jail, in connection to his prostitution case. New court documents reveal that Prosecutors argue that Kraft may have committed a third-degree felony.
Kraft was arrested back in February and hit with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution at a Jupiter, Florida massage parlor. Kraft pleaded not guilty and issued an apology with a statement that stated: “I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”
However, the chance that Kraft is formally charged with the felony is highly unlikely as the warrant has been thrown into question. In May, a judge threw out the evidence police gathered against Kraft, ruling that authorities did not have a lawful “sneak-and-peek” warrant at the massage parlor.
“The ‘sneak-and-peak’ warrant to investigate Robert Kraft was illegal because it didn’t indicate when the hidden cameras were supposed to stop recording.
Sports Illustrated legal analyst Michael McCann tweeted Saturday. “Prosecutors now want to charge Kraft with a felony. Good luck with that.”
