Pleads Not Guilty
… In Prostitution Case
2/28/2019 9:30 AM PST
Robert Kraft has formally entered a not guilty plea in his prostitution case, according to court records obtained by TMZ Sports.
“The defendant Robert Kraft hereby pleads not guilty to all charges and requests a non-jury trial in the above-styled cause,” the court docs state.
As we previously reported, Kraft’s attorney accepted the summons from the court on Feb. 26 — and an arraignment was set for March 27 at 8:30 AM … the same day Kraft was expected to be at the NFL’s Annual League Meeting with other team owners in Phoenix, Arizona.
Kraft had already made a public statement denying he participated in any illegal activity — in response to allegations he solicited prostitution at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida.
Officials say they have graphic surveillance video showing the 77-year-old New England Patriots owner entering the spa on January 19 and 20 … and receiving sex acts in exchange for money.
If convicted on both misdemeanor counts, Kraft faces up to a year in jail.
The NFL is also investigating the alleged incidents — and Kraft will likely face discipline from the league as well.
