Patriots owner Kraft asks judge not to release ‘pornography’ sting video
- Lawyer for Kraft asks judge to bar release of surveillance video
- Opponents argue suppression would violate public records laws
- Kraft, 77, has pleaded not guilty to two charges of soliciting sex
A lawyer for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Friday asked a Florida judge not to make public a video that led to the billionaire being charged in a prostitution sting at a massage parlor, calling the evidence “basically pornography”.
Media companies including ABC and ESPN clashed with Kraft’s defenders, saying the judge would violate Florida’s public records laws by suppressing the video of Kraft receiving sexual services at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida.
