Goodell: Robert Kraft is subject to personal conduct policy discipline

Robert Kraft

Robert Kraft will be subject to discipline from the NFL under the league’s personal conduct policy, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed on Tuesday.

Kraft has pleaded not guilty to two charges of soliciting prostitution stemming from two separate incidents at a massage parlor in Jupiter, Fla. Even though the New England Patriots owner is not admitting guilt in the case and could fight and beat the legal charges, that does not mean he would be clear from discipline from the league.

The commissioner has power to discipline members of the league regardless of the legal outcome of criminal and civil cases. Roger Goodell has exercised this power multiple times in the past and could use it again in this case, though he stressed he would wait for the facts to come out first.

There has been some talk that the league could discipline Kraft harshly simply for his involvement in the matter. If discipline does come, it might not be for a while.
