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:

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
