“We’re as equally stunned as anyone else.”
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was busted for allegedly soliciting prostitution at a Florida spa.
Kraft, 77, has been charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution, which is a misdemeanor, at the Orchids of Asia spa in Jupiter, Police Chief Daniel Kerr said at a press conference Monday morning. An arrest warrant was being sent to Kraft’s Massachusetts home, Kerr said.
“We’re as equally stunned as anyone else,” a top police official told reporters.

Police said the charges stem from two separate visits by Kraft to the spa. He was chauffeured there each time and seemed to be a “regular,” they said.
Average fees for sexual services at the spa range from $59 for a half-hour to $79 for an hour, according to police.
Kraft, a multimillionaire whose NFL team won its sixth Super Bowl this month, was among 25 people charged with soliciting prostitution at the spa. Police said they have video evidence of each alleged sex act by Kraft and the others.

Women, many of them from China, lived inside the spa and were not permitted to leave, Martin County Sheriff Will Snyder said. Police described the women as being held in “sexual servitude.”
A spokesman for Kraft said: “We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further.”
The arrest was part of a takedown of an alleged human trafficking ring that saw 10 spas shuttered in the Orlando area.
