Robert Kraft issues statement in wake of prostitution allegations
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has spoken publicly for the first time since his alleged involvement in a sex trafficking scandal came to light.
Kraft kept it vague and did not explicitly admit to any wrongdoing, but apologized for hurt and disappointment he’d caused, and vowed to prove himself capable of doing better through his actions.

Kraft’s statement doesn’t really address the legal jeopardy he’s still in. He is still refusing to admit any guilt, perhaps in part because he wants to do everything he can to keep NFL-imposed discipline against himself or his organization to a minimum. In fact, his attorneys are currently trying a new approach in an effort to get the charges against him thrown out.
