Robert Kraft reportedly isn't expected to fight the charges against him for soliciting prostitution, though the Patriots owner may plead down.
Kraft was caught on surveillance video paying for "sexual services" at Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla. The 77-year-old was placed at the spa on two separate occasions, including the morning of the Patriots' AFC title game on Jan. 20.
Though Kraft categorically denies the allegations, he isn't expected to dispute the charges according to T.J. Quinn of ESPN.
Sources who have seen the surveillance video say it is unquestionably Kraft and they don't expect him to dispute the charges (although he could plead down). Again, Kraft's attorneys deny he broke any laws. — T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) February 25, 2019

Quinn also reports that law enforcement officials expect the censored video of Kraft to be released.
Many asking if the Kraft video will be released. Law enforcement officials expect yes, although most graphic parts likely will be either eliminated or pixilated. Again, I'm told it's... graphic. Expecting motion to seal in 3... 2... 1... — T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) February 25, 2019
On Monday, the NFL said in a statement that the league is seeking "a full understanding of the facts" before taking any action with the case.
