Attorneys for Robert Kraft are arguing that “everyone loses” if video of the New England Patriots owner at the Orchids of Asia day spa is allowed in the case against him, according to a recent filing.
“If the State wins this appeal, then everyone loses, not just the accused,” Kraft’s lawyers wrote. “Government could run roughshod over privacy and constitutional rights while evading scrutiny and check.”
Kraft’s lawyers issued a last-minute, 62-page response last week to prosecutors appealing a judge’s ruling to suppress video of Kraft allegedly paying for sex acts at the Jupiter, Fla., spa on Jan. 19 and 20.
Jupiter, Fla., police recorded patrons at the Orchids of Asia in January 2019 with a controversial “sneak and peek” video surveillance warrant, which is also in question in the prosecution of four women from Orchids of Asia charged in the sting.
