Report: Robert Kraft could face jail time on sex solicitation charges


Repercussions could come relatively soon for Robert Kraft.

A warrant for the New England Patriots owner's arrest is expected to be issued Monday, the Palm Beach County state attorney's office told NFL Network.

Kraft was charged on two counts of solicitation of a prostitute Friday for his alleged role in a human trafficking ring.

Those are secondary misdemeanor charges, per Palm Beach County, and carry a maximum penalty of 60 days in prison per charge, meaning Kraft could spend a maximum of 120 days in jail based on his current charges.

The longtime Patriots owner released a statement Friday denying any illegal activity in response to the charges, so we could see a legal battle play out before any penalty is finalized.

The NFL also released a brief statement on the charges involving Kraft.
