The sex-for-cash case against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been dropped, Florida court documents confirm.
The documents, filed in Palm Beach County, include notices from prosecutors stating they are not willing to move forward with the two misdemeanor soliciting prostitution charges against him, NBC News reports.
Dave Aronberg, the county’s State Attorney, has scheduled a press conference on the case for 2:30 p.m.
Prosecutors had first tipped their hand on Monday, when they said they would not challenge an appeals court ruling that had significantly weakened their case by banning them from using secretly-obtained incriminating surveillance video.
The appeals court ruling found that the surveillance video — which allegedly showed him paying for sex acts at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, violated Kraft’s right to privacy.
