New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been charged in connection with a prostitution sting in Florida, WFXT reported.
The charge follows a series of raids involving at least eight massage parlors on the east coast of Florida.
On Tuesday, police announced the arrest of two women on prostitution, racketeering and money laundering charges and said nearly 200 others would be arrested on solicitation charges. Police in Vero Beach announced the arrest of eight other suspects linked to three massage parlors, plus nearly 200 men who solicited prostitution.
Police confirmed Friday that Kraft was involved in the bust. Authorities said surveillance camera footage showed him inside one of the spas.
“He was a regular,” police said.
Authorities in Jupiter said they filed a complaint against Kraft, who has been charged with soliciting another to commit prostitution. The charge is a misdemeanor.
Kraft, 77, denied the veracity of the charges in a statement released Friday.
