Robert Kraft Will Not Face Human Trafficking Charges After Prostitution Sting

Robert Kraft Will Not Face Human Trafficking Charges After Prostitution Sting

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was named as one of the people involved in a human trafficking sting in Florida last month. Kraft was wanted for two charges of soliciting someone to commit prostitution and was later formally charged, and faces up to a year in prison. TMZ now reports that Kraft and all of the other suspects in the prostitution sting will not be facing any charges related to human or sex trafficking.

Kraft is still facing two solicitation charges, but it's now been confirmed that he's not going to be facing the far more serious charges that were linked to some of the other arrests made in the sting. Further charges are still possible due to the ongoing nature of the case, Palm Beach County prosecutor and cop sources confirmed. The 25 other arrests made in connection with Palm Beach and Martin Counties sting will also not face any human or sex trafficking charges. Four of the individuals arrested were responsible for operating and managing the spas.

Both ICE and the FBI knew about the sting before the arrests took place, but decided to to not involve themselves since they saw no signs of alleged trafficking. Sources close to the case have said that prosecutors so far have zero evidence of any trafficking following their 5-month investigation. Police recently made an additional 45 arrests at massage parlors in Indian River and Orange Counties.

Recently, it was reported that the founder of the spa Kraft visited was spotted at Trump's Super Bowl party.
