    Don't have all the details yet but it doesn't look good.Looks like he visited the Jupiter "massage parlor" a couple times. Only a misdemeanor charge so far.

    A PRE-EMPTIVE WARNING

    Yes the Pats are rivals, and often hated rivals, and this scenario is a potentially sordid affair for their owner, however, this forum still has rules, and know that everyone will abide by those rules, keep it clean, and show some class if commenting on this news.

    The title says it all- watch the video on Yahoo and try not to laugh! This will have some definite NFL blow-back!

    Here's other tidbits- it sounds like they actually have him on camera doing the deeds in an Asian spa-

    He should be removed from the NFL. Maybe Brady was with him. Or Brady was the Asian girl.

    Except that some of these girls were forced into the sex traffic trade. I may not have been consensual on their part. Not that Kraft forced them but his participation enables these scumbags to do this to women. Typically minority women.

    Exactly right. If it was a high end prostitute that would be fine but this is probably the case as it is with most of these spa / massage places.

    It is much worse than that given the type of investigation that was taking place. Anything that hurts the Patriots is good news.

    Definitely not what I was talking about with this. I simply said if you have to pay to play because you're old or ugly then that is your problem. I'm not condoning any other part of "prostitution." I apologize if there was a misunderstanding and I will definitely delete my previous post. My bad.

    I read a teaser on TMZ earlier that said Kraft was not the biggest name arrested in that sting....and I'm freaking dying to know what that means. I'll do a triple back flip if Belichek was there.

    I mean....the cops have these guys on camera....in the act! This could be devastating for New England.

    God I’m so happy to see this happen to the NFLs golden owner.

    I’m sure someone of such high moral character would never cheat to win championships either.

    South Florida will eventually and assuredly take down the Patriots one way, or another!

    I'm not so sure since this is HIGHLY political. The media could make Kraft the poster boy for sex trafficking- that's unfair but it's also the world we live in today. That puts massive pressure on Goodell and other owners to sell the franchise. I mean, we've seen an NBA and NFL team forced for sale over racist comments....this is another level entirely and a huge embarrassment to the league.

    Kraft will never be talked about the same way again- not with today's media. And if Kraft goes, who knows who follows him out the door.

    Because he's not trafficking women- he just had sex with two of them. We can't discuss the politics here but this will ultimately be a much much bigger news story because of Kraft's relationship with Trump. I think within the next few weeks the media will make him out to be the scum of the Earth and he'll probably be laughed out of football.

    Is that unfair? Maybe. I don't feel bad because of the crap the Pats have pulled over the years- to me it's pure karma. Once the media sees a story angle that will sell, they're freaking ruthless in the court of public opinion. Do I feel he should be in trouble though? Heck yes I do! Those young girls were someone's daughter that came to America with big hopes and dreams. Places like Asian massage parlors should not exist in America...it's basically slavery. It disgusts me to think that a person with his influence goes to places like that. I don't care if his wife did just die- let him go to Vegas for willing whores if that's what he is into.

    Would legalizing prostitution stop sex-trafficking in the USA? If so, then I might be all for it.

    He did not enslave the women? He just had sex with them? Have sex with slaves, whatever happens to him, is completely fair.

    Worth a read.

    "By Patricia Mazzei

    JUPITER, Fla. — Something was amiss at a massage parlor near one of the wealthiest barrier islands in Florida.

    First, a health inspector spotted several suitcases. Then she noticed an unusual stash of clothing, food and bedding. A young woman who was supposed to be a massage therapist spoke little English and seemed unusually nervous.

    The inspector reported her findings to the police. They would eventually learn that her suspicions were right: The women were not just employees: They were living in the day spa, sleeping on massage tables and cooking meals on hot plates in the back. Some of them had had their passports confiscated.

    The inspector’s suspicions prompted a sprawling investigation across four Florida counties and two states — Florida and New York — over nearly eight months, resulting in the disruption of what authorities say was a multimillion-dollar human-trafficking and prostitution operation.

    Robert K. Kraft, the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots; John Havens, former president and chief operating officer of Citigroup; and John Childs, founder of the private equity firm J.W. Childs Associates.

    Beyond the lurid celebrity connection, however, lies the wretched story of women who the police believe were brought from China under false promises of new lives and legitimate spa jobs. Instead, they found themselves trapped in the austere back rooms of strip-mall brothels — trafficking victims trapped among South Florida’s rich and famous..."

    I just wonder how a billionaire even finds this place. He must have had it recommended by someone no way he just wandered in by mistake. He can have a private therapist anytime come to his home. Why on earth go to a strip mall in Jupiter and not some high class place in Palm Beach? Im sure there is more to this story and i bet it wasn't just twice.

    John Childs of J. W. Childs is also facing the same charges, although it's unclear whether it's for the same location.

    Here's the thing. No woman in their right mind enjoys having sex with strangers for money. Sure, they may try to fool people with the "It's just sex and the money is great" routine, but deep down they are miserable. Everyone from the sex slaves making $50 bucks a trick to the high end call girls making $5000 per night hates what they do and would rather be doing something else. Can you imagine being forced to have sex with people you don't want to have sex with?

    And Kraft, a billionaire, who has a GF 40 years his junior and most likely others, who are NOT sex slaves and willing to do whatever he wants, knew damn well what these women are going through and he said "**** it. Take my money". He's a POS.

    Paying women for sex is barely one step above rape, and in a lot of instances it is exactly like rape, IMO.
