Robert Kraft Says He Is “Truly Sorry” But Refuses To Plead Guilty With All Prostitution Charges Dropped

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is in a peculiar situation. Less than a month after being charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution, Kraft has made his first public comments about his connection to the Florida prostitution sting.

In a vague statement, he wrote: “I am truly sorry. I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”

Robert Kraft Scandal continues

He quickly moves on and addresses the fact that he is an elderly widower. Calling on the image of his late wife, he said, “Throughout my life I’ve tried to do the right thing. The last thing I would ever want to do was to disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women. My morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years.”

But Kraft then posited an interesting request. He wrote: “As I move forward, I hope to use the platform with which I have been blessed to help others and to try to make a difference. I expect to be judged not by my words but by my actions. And through those actions, I hope to regain your confidence and respect.”

The statement is odd. It neither addresses his activities at the Orchid Day Spa nor his plans for the case and doesn’t admit to any wrongdoings. It only says sorry, and for what exactly, we’re not aware of.

On March 1, Kraft pleaded not guilty to his charges. The 77-year-old had been videotaped receiving oral and manual stimulation from a woman at the spa in Jupiter, Florida. If convicted, Kraft would face one year in jail, a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and attendance in a human trafficking dangers class. Of course, prosecutors attempted to cut the billionaire a deal. His misdemeanor charges would be dropped if he was willing to admit he would have been found guilty at trial on the charges of soliciting prostitution. However, Kraft refused.

In accordance with his word, Kraft is “truly sorry.” His actions, what he expects to be judged by, say the exact opposite. So do the videotapes recovered from the scene of the crimes.  President Donald Trump was also seen in one photo on Super Bowl Sunday posing alongside Cindy Yang, the reported owner of the Orchid Day Spa in Florida.
