Robert Kraft Charged in Prostitution Probe

Recommended Posts

This has always been the likely outcome.

 

Kraft is never going to admit wrong-doing here. He said he is sorry to have hurt or disappointed people. But he is not admitting to any illegal activity and as such this is his way of saying "I did something some people may consider immoral. And I am sorry that I did that and it hurt them with the standard they hold me to. But it is not illegal so take me to court and I will fight it and prove I am innocent".

 

In this day of media where you are really guilty until proven innocent in the court of public opinion, this was always the likely outcome.

 

They motioned to suppress the video so that it doesn't leak and tarnish his reputation even more. After all, the league and the public really start to get up in arms over stuff when they see it. If you don't see it it is just words and is not "real". (hence the domestic violence or violence against women incidents blowing up mainly when there is footage of it).

 

The defense has also called into question the legality of the way the videos/surveillance, was acquired. Questioning the validity of the human trafficking claim since they claim there is no evidence of that happening here and thus it was simply a sting operation geared at capturing people doing one thing under the guise of trying to catch something else that was not happening at all.

 

In the end, Kraft and his defense will likely make this a bigger headache and more drama than it is worth for the prosecutors. If that happens they will likely drop it and he will come away clean (legally). And if he is found innocent or his case is dropped publicly, it will further embolden his claim that he did nothing illegal or truly wrong. And the public scorn will fade in short order when that happens.

 

Oh to be rich and have the resources to spin the narrative in your favor  :-)

On another note, I saw a story yesterday about a woman who is making inspirational jewelry and employing victims of human trafficking.  I'm starting to believe that's all we can do.

    • Yep. Up until that neck injury I don’t think manning missed a snap his entire career here.
    • Andrew has had 3 maybe 4 injuries since the beginning of his career, manning only missed one season here. So no worries the bad luck was all Bob's. 
    • that guy is too short, has no wheels, and has to take a time out after every 6 attempts. will never make it.. nice jugs though
    • The facts.. a hung jury (twice) mistrial with most voters having sided for the alleged accuser/victim... both times.     She (prosecution) didn't drop the charges, the school (judge/jury) did.  She wanted round 3.  She wanted a full yes or no vote (4-1 or 5-0) either way, not we're split 3-2 so we'll just call it against the majority vote and designate as "Not Responsible" because it isn't 4 or more votes either way. - 'Case closed'.     There were questions (and other items) from the accuser that were never allowed in or asked in follow up questioning.  I think one of the changes to the Stanford Title IX hearing rules is to also allow an attorney to be not only in attendance but to also perform all duties of representation.  And an outside group determines what is admissible as questions/evidence, follow questions, etc...     At some level, it did, and many things at Stanford were changed after. At the  minimum, it was a mistrial x2, with no conclusive verdict either way. Then school (not prosecution) drops the case.   So she really needed to report this to both the school, and also the Police.  But with what evidence does she have to convince the LEO?  Guess the gals need some hidden body cam w/audio these days, like many folks do with dash cams (like me and my wife's cars...) and be their own TMZ...   Video, apparently the only way things get rectified anymore...     No worries, at least we know each others positions.  All is good.     Except to have (at some level) differing story from a another high achieving Stanford student about another high achieving Stanford student-   https://www.collegesimply.com/colleges/california/stanford-university/admission/     We don't even know for certain they ever got the FULL story, but articles I've read suggest that the Stanford Panel repressed/disallowed many/most of her interrogating questions and supplemental follow up inquiries to be asked of the accused.  Unless someone directly asks her directly, how could you answer as to whether her whole story was even heard or not?   If you are not truly interested to fully know those answers, then you don't ask.  At least, that's my perspective.
