FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Prosecutors charging New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft with buying sex from massage parlor prostitutes are trying to save their case.
They will argue before a Florida appellate court on Tuesday that police legally made secret video recordings of Kraft having paid sex at a Jupiter massage parlor in January 2019.
A lower court judge ruled that prosecutors could not use the recordings. He said the warrant allowing police to install secret cameras inside the Orchids of Asia spa violated constitutional standards. Kraft is charged with misdemeanor solicitation of prostitution.
He has pleaded not guilty but issued a public apology.
