    Neighbors of Robert Kraft in Brookline are largely standing by the Patriots' owner.

    Neighbors of Robert Kraft, like many throughout New England, are beginning to weigh in on the Patriots' owner being accused of soliciting prostitution in Jupiter, Florida.

    "I think it's a moral lapse in judgement, clearly. I wouldn't think highly of him in that respect. I'd have to wait and see what the outcome is," said one neighbor in Brookline, Massachusetts.

    While there are those in the neighborhood not rushing to judgement, there are others who have defiantly decided where they stand.

    "You asked me a question. Is Robert Kraft a good man? He's not a good man, he's a great man! He does a lot for Brookline," one woman said.

    Some in town were stunned that media members showed up in their neighborhood to ask about Kraft allegedly being one of the 26 men caught on camera engaging in sexual acts with women inside the Orchids of Asia day spa.

    "If any of it is true, which it may not be, I believe it is his personal life." It's his private life and he has the right to his own private affairs," said another neighbor, walking by to observe the large groups of media members outside Kraft's home.
