The latest on the Robert Kraft/prostitution ring scandal, coming in hot!
According to the latest reports, Kraft– along with all others involved– will not be charged with human trafficking. In fact, “sources” tell TMZ that authorities have no evidence of that allegation specifically.
Robert Kraft and all the other suspects in South Florida’s prostitution sting are not facing a single charge of human or sex trafficking — despite the fact cops made that their headline … TMZ Sports has learned.
That’s pretty huge, considering that was the POINT of the entire sting in the first place.
We’ve confirmed with prosecutors in Palm Beach County — home to the now-infamous Orchids of Asia Spa — that Kraft is still only facing 2 solicitation charges. We’re told that’s also true for the other 25 “johns” arrested in Palm Beach and Martin Counties. Four other people have been arrested for operating or managing the spas, but even they haven’t been charged with trafficking.
Yep. At this point, Kraft is facing two misdemeanor counts of solicitation.
Sources familiar with the case tell us prosecutors have seen ZERO evidence of human trafficking to this point — after a 5-month investigation. Further, we’re told 2 federal agencies — ICE and the FBI — knew about the sting early on, and opted not to get involved because they saw no signs the case involved trafficking.
