Robert Kraft Charged in Prostitution Probe

Recommended Posts

Is Kraft not listening to his lawyers? It would seem that the lawyers would try to talk Kraft into accepting the plea deal. I think refusing this would be a huge mistake. He thinks that he really didn't do anything wrong. 

 

No, not what he is being asked to admit he did though...

Evidently not. I understand that this is normal procedure for first time offenders, it's not like he personally is being given special treatment.  It's been offered to everyone accused in this case, as first time offenders.

 

It would only make sense to take the plea deal, given the supposed evidence they have.

 

It will be interesting... stay tuned. :popcorn:

 

:edit:. I just read he's filing a motion to suppress the video evidence.  :scratch:. Why file that motion if you're innocent. :scratch:

 

 

Because, I have surmised over the years, it's not just about being 'not guilty, it's about procedure as well.

 

"A Florida lawyer questioning the legality of videos capturing sex acts in the Jupiter massage parlor sting wants to block their release, saying the men are charged with soliciting prostitution, while the warrant in the case cited trafficking."

 

“The issue is was there valid, legal reason to tape?” Richard Kibbey, a partner at Kibbey-Wagner, told the Herald on Tuesday. “The basis to tape is challengeable because the state attorney in Palm Beach didn’t say any of the men charged had any knowledge of trafficking going on. So that will be a centerpiece of our defense. … It’s unlikely that the tape in any way shows awareness of trafficking.”

 

"According to records, covert video surveillance equipment recorded footage of Kraft and others. "

A “joint motion for a protective order” in one of the men’s cases included Kraft and others.

The filing states that the video recordings and other evidence have not been produced in the court process of “discovery.”

 

There had also been a motion to 'seal' the evidence.  That was recently dissolved as well.

 

Things are rarely as simple as they seem.

 

{Sigh}

Another thing...

 

If the cameras also recorded any audio at all, with Florida’s status as a so-called two-party state (all parties to a recorded conversation must be aware of the recording and consent to it), those recordings would violate the wiretapping laws.

 

Probably a lot of things Kraft's lawyers are combing through.

Yes, the Defenses attorneys will probably find some loop holes or technicality to get the videos blocked.  

 

He's 77 yr. Old soon to be 78 yr. old man. I don't think anyone wanted to see him behind bars.  

 

I still believe he's guilty of  soliciting, but there's no way to know if he was aware of the trafficking. 

 

The one victory here is that it has brought more awareness to the widespread human trafficking going on and several parlors have been shut down.

 

Who knows how long this case will be drawn out, or what the final outcome from the charges in Florida will be.

Well, maybe not for that infraction.

Because of the many layers and outside the country connections etc ... getting anybody convicted of trafficking is very hard.  I know they want to, and the public feels it needs to be, but it's very difficult for them.

Yes, at least temporarily.  I fear it will die down, eventually blow over.  But maybe cities/counties can keep better reigns on the 'business shops' in the future.

If the state was conducting a sting I think they would have the permission to wiretap as part of their investigation before hand?  I can't see them not having their Xes and Os covered.

Just a thought.

That explains a lot.  It's why Kraft hasn't accepted plea as I believe he eventually will.   But the pleas must have a seal the evidence permanently order involved, I suspect.

Indeed, it seems that they had a delayed notification warrant granted.

When i first heard about this of course i laughed, cracked jokes, etc.  Now, i just feel sad for a 77 year OLD man.  Tho i hate EVERYTHING related to NE, i cant help but feel compassion for the guy.  I guess that is what s parates us from those nitwit NE fans.  The only thing that hat bothered me was hearing the attorneys say the car stop and video were not lawful.  so, in other words,  he'd be innocent if properly la s were followed by police.  Spygate, defate-gate, etc.... denial and crying "foul" was the stance in those crimes too.

When i was in college they'd set up a sting every month it seemed.  They had a lady cop busting "johns".  The cop's chase car would sit and blend in our fraternity parking lot.  This gave our brothers 2 big benefits.  We had a front fow seat when they'd bring the johns back to process, and more importantly....: give us more warnings and leniency when they'd show up to "address" our weekend parties.  Usually because our resident "one-punch", short-fused "bouncer" brother knocked an extra unruly guest out cold in the parking lot.   Oh memories.....

Weird, he says he's sorry and hopes to make up for it with future actions.....which sounds like a great plan.

 

Then he says everything the police did was wrong and they know it.  So, I guess that's the future actions that proves he's sorry :grumpy2:

He'd have to be very willfully ignorant to not think trafficking might have been involved with an Asian woman who barely speaks any English offering her "services" to Americans.  Like, head-in-the-sand willfully ignorant, and it's a stretch to assume someone as intelligent and successful as Kraft could be that ignorant, even willfully.

 

I assume you're assuming he assumed she wanted to grow up to be a prostitute at a spa in Florida pleasuring wrinkly old men?

 

Wow, indeed.

I just like the way y'all selectively look at evidence when it comes to things like solicitation, harassing trainers at Tennessee, and using HGH that's delivered to your house in your wife's name.

That's a nice try at deflection, but I'll bite anyway.  Can you point out where I defended Peyton for the trainer incident or the HGH use?  I think less of him because of it, but I don't put people on a pedestal and call them a hero because they're good at throwing a football.

 

He knows he shouldn't have done those things.

 

And Kraft knows he shouldn't have been soliciting "services" from a woman that was most likely in her situation due to human trafficking.  He's not dumb, and neither are you.

Exactly!    Not to mention...   the supposed  young college kid locker room antics is hardly comparable to an old wealthy man paying for someone to "pleasure him" illegally in a parlor. And yes there is video evidence to the latter.

I cannot believe there are still people who think Peyton used HGH. I am sorry, but you are incredibly ignorant if you do. The "journalist" who reported it worked for a debunked joke of a "news source" and he is on public record saying he made the story up.


The locker room situation at Tennessee is admittedly not as clear. Peyton said he was mooning a teammate as a joke and the female trainer in question walked around the corner at that moment. The trainer said he mooned her. The trainer was also involved in a number of failed other lawsuits. You be the judge of who is more trustworthy, but in the end Peyton was not found guilty of anything.
 

How in the crap do those even remotely compare to Kraft being caught on video?!

My favorite part of the Manning HGH allegation is that Charlie Sly (the intern who accused Manning and then later admitted he made the whole thing up) DID NOT EVEN WORK AT THE MEDICAL FACILITY in the time-frame he originally said he witnessed the facility supplying HGH to Manning. Yeah, real credible stuff here.

Selective look at evidence.? 

Well in Manning's case there is no evidence.

In Brady's case he destroyed the evidence.

In Kraft's case there is evidence.

Anything else?

Lol. Is that the best you could do to support your argument that Kraft did nothing wrong? Your turning this back on Colts fans shows that you cannot find legit arguments to defend Kraft. This guy is pretending not to have known that these women were trafficked. You actually believe him??

 

Your logical fallacy is:

You know if there's video evidence and the defendants ego won't let them admit fault and wants to fight it... Law enforcement and prosecutors tend to not like that...I can see them wanting to stick it to him just for him making them go through this.

That was my thought too.   This is something that doesn't warrant a jury trial. Was to be decided by judge based on the evidence.  Can he insist on a jury trial?  :scratch:

    • I hear what you're saying, and I don't disagree.  I'm reacting to the message Ballard's recent actions in particular are sending.  I'm not saying I agree or even like it very much
    • This team  is fading fast in close games, now they have bank an inconsistent kicker to win close games. Game, set, match.  Top five pick for sure.
    • Theres probably some truth in that, and that worries me more than anything.   Folding up camp at the halfway point, with a winning record, in a winnable division is contrary to what we were led to believe this organization is about.   If what you suggest is true the "rivalry is not back on".  The idea that theres no quit in this team, top to bottom character matters,  that lockerroom culture matters and must be protected, that they prove their way through adversity,  and "1,2,3 family" simply wouldnt be true.  The culture they've said they're building becomes the palest illusion.   If what you suggest is true the colts are tanking worse than the dolphins, and wont be able to evaluate effectively because they aren't running an organization that believes in it's own professed culture.   If they're just playing out the string it means they've decided to evaluate players in a losing environment not a winning one.  They wont see the best of anyone under those circumstances.     Not saying you're wrong but if they're at that point already, under these circumstances.......irsay may as well just fire everyone and move it london.  Beckham can kick for us, hes close to 50 right?
    • The bottom line is they think losing him would be a bigger detriment in the locker room then if they just let him play it out. I am almost willing to bet they have talked to teams leaders to gauge if there is any back lash going on with AV. From the way it sounds so far the players are blaming how they are playing more then they are blaming themselves.
    • that's exactly what we should not be doing.   have you ever heard the phrase "perfect is the enemy of good?"  Well until the perfect quarterback comes around I'm perfectly satisfied with the good one we already have.   And I really think that squandering the draft assets to chase an ephemeral perfect Qb will hamstring us in other areas.   The microscope some of you guys hold Brissett under is abolutely ridiculous, expecting him to do things that maybe 4 QB in the entire league are actually capable of or you dismiss him as "average" or "a career backup."  It's honestly pathetic at this point.   Exactly 0 of the QBs that won Superbowls in the last 15 years were guys drafted to be the perfect QB.  15 of those 15 teams had a QB with flaws -- even Manning had his share of flaws by the time he won one, with his age mounting and his health starting to deteriorate.   We wasted a lot of time in the Manning era chasing Superbowls with a QB heavy team and living in denial about how bad certain areas of the team were, especially on D, because Manning bailed it out.  Cost us over and over again against the Patriots until 06 when we finally managed to eke one out against them.   Then we draft Luck and repeat those same mistakes until we break Luck down and wear him out trying to cover for all the flaws we refuse to admit are there until he retires.   There IS a reason our internet nickname is "the Glue Factory."  We are not kind to our horses at times, and overoptimistically expect too much of key producers while providing too little support.  And our solution to any problem, especially at QB, is to throw it away and draft another one.  The whole league is bad about this but we're among the worst.   Just once I'd like to see the fans of this franchise admit that there's more to winning football games than having a QB and that the solution to all team problems is not to throw the QB into the woodchipper and draft another one.    It's infuriating to be the fan of the second worst team in the league when it comes to this attitude (second only to the Jets) and watch it unfold in realtime again and again.  And they DON'T learn, and they will NEVER learn unless they're called out, and probably not even then.
