Looks like Robert Kraft is out of trouble.

Eric Snyder, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan DA’s Office and the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and now a high-profile trial lawyer, believes there are glaring issues in the case.

.....

First of all, the women he was with appear to have been operators of the massage parlor. One was arrested and the other one appears to be a cooperating witness, which is why she is named in the affidavits but wasn’t arrested. Prosecutors and police do not leave victims’ name unredacted in the reports they release.

“There’s also no proof in the affidavit that he solicited anything from the women. It is possible that this could have been a legal and consensual act between adults and there does not seem to be evidence to prove otherwise. So the facts supporting a misdemeanor charge of solicitation really don’t jump out at you.

“Second, the video was probably not legally obtained, the police seemed to ignore the necessity requirement for such an intrusive measure like planting a camera in the premises.” (The law stipulates police should only seek warrants for surveillance cameras if no other evidence is available to support their case, so Kraft’s lawyers could argue the video footage is not legal and an invasion of privacy.)

“And third, I doubt the traffic stop was legal either. So the evidence will likely be suppressed [by Kraft’s legal team] if there is ever a trial.


Which is kind of a bummer. I really wanted to see the NFL handle this one with all their grace and tact


He better not get off the hook and not have to deal with backlash from the NFL. He can afford good enough legal representation that I don't doubt he will 'beat' the charges on technicalities but the truth is, he visited a strip mall rub and tug multiple times. He can't deny that.

Of course, if he beats the charges then the NFL will just go right back to their favorite play, ignore and claim there is nothing they can do since he beat the charges because the NFL office is full of spineless weasels who all work for the owners and the owners will figure that their brand (and team values) are better off if they just ignore it and wait for it to go away.

The overall case may not be dismissed, but there's no way it goes to trial - or at the very least, Robert Kraft won't be involved if it does in fact go to trial. He will settle with the prosecution outside of court for an undisclosed sum that is less than a drop in the bucket of his wealth and wash his hands completely clean of it.

That's true, he should definitely wash his hands.
