Patriots owner Robert Kraft offered deferred prosecution on Florida prostitution charges

Robert Kraft

Robert Kraft has no intention of accepting the reported offer extended to him by Florida prosecutors in his solicitation case, according to multiple reports Tuesday night.

In addition to admitting guilt, the deferred prosecution offer requires completion of an education course about prostitution, 100 hours of community service, screening for sexually transmitted diseases and payment of court costs.

Police claim to have video evidence of him exchanging money for sexual services.

The deal was offered to Kraft and 24 other men charged in the case.

A notice sign from the Jupiter Building Department is seen on the front door of the Orchids of Asia Day Spa on February 22, 2019, in Jupiter, Fla.

Going to work on an egg linked to increased heart risk
An adult in the United States gets an average of 300 milligrams per day of cholesterol and eats about three or four eggs per week. Now, a new study - published Friday by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA ) - has weighed in.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday afternoon that prosecutors offered to defer prosecution for Kraft and the two dozen other men arrested in the case, but any defendant who accepts the offer must admit that there is enough evidence to lead to a conviction at trial.

Kraft pleaded not guilty to the two misdemeanor charges.

The spa had been under police surveillance since late a year ago over concerns of human trafficking and prostitution.

Kraft has denied taking part in any illegal activity - and that admission is likely the primary reason he will decline the deal.

The veteran ESPN reporter says Kraft hasn't necessarily rejected the deal and expects "intense negotiations" between the two sides leading up to the March 28 arraignment hearing. A spokeswoman for the Jupiter Police Department, which conducted the investigation, referred requests for comment to the Palm Beach County State Attorney's office, which did not immediately respond to ABC News. The letter presses Goodell to ban Kraft from the league if he is found guilty of soliciting sex.
