Robert Kraft is going on the offensive in his prostitution solicitation case and demanding that the evidence in the case be tossed out because it was allegedly obtained illegally.
According to the documents filed Thursday and obtained by The Blast, the New England Patriots owner seeks to “supress video recordings that are the fruits of an unlawful sneak-and-peek search warrant.”
He claims officials used nefarious tactics to “spy” on the private rooms of a licensed spa while he received treatment from “licensed masseuses.”
Kraft also wants the evidence related to the “unlawful traffic stop” thrown out. As we previously reported, Kraft was pulled over by police and questioned after one of his visits to the Orchids of Asia massage parlor.
He claims “Florida resorted to the most drastic, invasive, indiscriminate spying conceivable by law enforcement.”
Officials have detailed the wide-reaching investigation into sex trafficking and solicitation, that resulted in Kraft, and many others, being hit with charges. Investigators had video cameras installed, pursuant to a warrant, and caught many customers allegedly exchanging money for sex acts.
Kraft has denied taking part in any illegal activity and has already plead not guilty to the two misdemeanor charges. However, he has also apologized for the embarrassment the incident has caused his family.
