Robert Kraft investigation: What we know about Patriots owner’s sex solicitation allegations

Police announced Friday that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution at a spa in Jupiter, Florida.

Kraft, 77, was one of 25 people charged Friday in a wide-ranging investigation into human-trafficking across multiple Florida counties. Jupiter police chief Daniel Kerr said in a news conference that police have video evidence of Kraft engaging in sex acts on two separate visits to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa last month.

Here's a quick rundown of the information that has been released by authorities, the initial reaction and what is expected to happen next with the Patriots owner.

What did Kraft do?

Andrew Sharp, the lead detective on the case, said Friday that Kraft was driven to the Jupiter spa on two occasions and received sex acts, which were captured by video inside the building. He declined to provide many other specifics.

Sharp indicated that Kraft paid for these acts but did not disclose how much Kraft paid, or his method of payment. He did say, however, that the "average fee" for the spa was $59 for 30 minutes and $79 for an hour.

When asked if Kraft "was there as a regular" or "seemed familiar with this," Sharp answered: "I would say, going through the evidence, yes."
