JUPITER, Fla. —
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is stepping up his defense, pushing back more against prostitution charges in Florida.
In a statement to ESPN, Attorney William Burck is calling on the state attorney in Florida to investigate how the evidence was obtained.
“There was no human trafficking and law enforcement knows it,” Burck said. “The video and the traffic stop were illegal and law enforcement just doesn’t want to admit it.”
The attorneys representing Kraft and other men charged in the Florida massage parlor prostitution investigation are asking a judge to block the release of video recordings police say shows them engaging in sexual acts.
Attorneys for Kraft and 14 of the other 24 men charged said in court documents filed this week that releasing the video taken secretly by police inside the Orchids of Asia Day spa during January would violate the state’s public records law.
