Robert Kraft Offered a Deal to Drop Soliciting Prostitution Charges

BOSTON ( -- New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and other men charged with soliciting prostitution have been offered a deal by Florida prosecutors to have the charges dropped, according to the Wall Street Journal.

This would happen if the men were to admit they would be found guilty at a trial. The report adds the men would need to attend an education course on prostitution, 100 hours of community service, among other things.

Kraft, 77, was charged last month with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution linked to visits to the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla., in January. 

Kraft denied any illegal activity in a statement through a spokesman immediately following being charged, and has since hired a few high-profile lawyers. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 28.

It is not known whether Kraft would consider accepting this deal.
