Judge Blocks Release of Videos Connected to Robert Kraft Case

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was charged with solicitation after he allegedly paid for sex acts at an illicit massage parlor in Florida

A Florida judge has temporarily blocked the release of multiple videos recorded at the day spa where Patriots owner Robert Kraft is accused of soliciting prostitution.

At a motions hearing Monday for Lei Wang, the manager of the Orchids of Asia day spa, a judge ruled that all of the video in the case should be temporarily sealed.

Kraft's defense team is trying to convince Judge Leonard Hanser that the installation of the cameras was an illegal search and that Kraft's constitutional right to privacy was violated.

Kraft and 24 other men were charged in February with misdemeanor solicitation for allegedly paying for sex there. The female owner and three employees are charged with felonies and misdemeanors. Kraft has pleaded not guilty but publicly apologized for his behavior.

A hearing for Kraft's case will continue Tuesday.
