Robert Kraft vehemently denies wrongdoing in sex trafficking sting
Robert Kraft had a warrant for his arrest issued this week for his alleged involvement in a sex trafficking sting, but the New England Patriots owner is denying engaging in any illegal activity.
Police in Jupiter, Fla., said Friday that Kraft is among several men who were seen on video engaging in illegal sexual activity at a spa that was under investigation for sex trafficking. Through a spokesperson, Kraft denied the allegations against him.
“We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity,” Kraft’s spokesperson said in a statement. “Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”
Kraft has been charged with soliciting another to commit prostitution. Investigators said he was driven to the massage parlor on more than one occasion to receive sex acts.
While there have been plenty of scandals within the Patriots organization over the years, Kraft is one of the most respected team owners in sports. He is largely credited for turning the Patriots into arguably the most successful franchise in NFL history.
