Report: Florida prosecutors offer to drop charges against Robert Kraft


According to the Wall Street Journal, Florida prosecutors have offered to drop charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, with a condition.

The proposed agreement calls for Kraft and the other men charged with soliciting prostitution to admit they would have been proven guilty at trial, the WSJ reported Tuesday, citing a "a person familiar with the matter."

In addition, the agreement also calls for the men to complete an educational course on prostitution, perform 1,000 hours of community service, take a screening for sexually transmitted diseases and pay for some court costs, per the WSJ.

The WSJ characterized the deal as "unusual," noting that legal experts have questions about how Florida police originally obtained search warrants which resulted in Kraft being charged with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution

After Kraft hired a high-powered legal team, some are wondering if the charges against Kraft may not hold.

The Patriots owner has an arraignment set for March 28. It remains to be seen whether or not Kraft will accept the deal, or continue his legal fight. Regardless, the potential discipline the NFL may impose is a separate matter.
