In February Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg announced his office was charging New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and 24 other men with soliciting another to commit prostitution in relation to filing packets received from the Jupiter Police Department.
Jupiter police reports indicate Kraft visited the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter on Jan. 19 and 20. On the 19, the transaction lasted approximately forty minutes and on the 20, about 14 minutes.
Kraft has entered a plea of not guilty and has requested a non-jury trial. His arraignment is scheduled for 9 a.m Thursday March 28, 2019. He is not expected to be in court.
Palm Beach County prosecutors declined to comment, the Wall Street Journal said.
After the Journal posted the story on its website State Attorney Dave Aronberg tweeted a correction to the article.
Correction: The offer of a deferred prosecution agreement with several conditions to first time offenders is standard in cases like this. https://t.co/6TvDHQo5fZ
