Robert Kraft's lawyers say Patriots owner will suffer ‘irreparable harm' if video is released


Robert Kraft's lawyers continue to fight against the possible release of the video footage in the Patriots owner's sex-solicitation case.

Kraft's attorneys said Wednesday that the release of videotapes that allegedly show Kraft paying for sexual favors at a Jupiter, Fla. spa would cause the 77-year-old to suffer "irreparable harm," per The Boston Globe. They also stressed it would "destroy" Kraft's chances of getting a fair trial.

Kraft waived his arraignment last month and requested a jury trial. He has filed a motion to prevent the release of the video footage, which several media outlets have since opposed.

Florida prosecutors offered to drop Kraft's case if he'd admit that he would have been found guilty if the case went to trial, but Kraft declined to take the deal.
