Transcript for Patriots owner reportedly plans to reject plea deal
Now to new developments involving that prostitution case against Robert Kraft. He reportedly planning to reject an offer to drop the charges against him and linsey Davis is here. He didn't like one requirement of the deal, admitting guilt. That's right, Michael. That seems to be the sticking point and primary reason he plans to turn down that plea deal and now Kraft's lawyers are also fighting to keep any potentially video of the patriots owner out of public view. Police say they have damning videotaped evidence and Kraft wants to make sure no one ever sees it. This morning, new England patriots owner Robert Kraft is reportedly planning to say, no deal, in response to a plea offer from Florida prosecutors, which would have required him among other things to admit that if his case went to trial, he would be found guilty of soliciting prostitution. Kraft has pleaded not guilty to the charges accused of two misdemeanor counts of soliciting a prostitute at a Florida massage parlor. He was 1 of 25 men caught up in a major operation to uncover alleged human trafficking. This is about enabling a network of criminals to traffic women into our country for forced labor and sex. Reporter: If he had been willing to make that admission of guilt, pay $10,000 in fine, perform 100 hours of community service and attend a class on the dangers of prostitution, the charges of misdemeanor soliciting prostitution would have been dropped. On Wednesday his lawyers filed this protective order asking a judge to prevent any evidence in the case from being made public including any footage of the alleged sexual encounters. The question was does the video contain Mr. Kraft inside receiving the alleged ac? The answer so that is yes. Recorden joshden Wagner represents 15 other men. We have to see if the videos were obtained properly. I would dispute the notion it was an exchange of money for I don't know if there's any actual solicitation of prostitution. Reporter: His arraignment set for March 28th. Despite his apress president trump told staffers he wants Kraft at the white house when the patriots go to celebrate their super bowl victory. That's expected to happen in the coming weeks. I'm sure admitting guilt would mean a big penalty from the NFL. The NFL can punish him separate and apart from any criminal charges.
