Patriots owner Robert Kraft charged in Florida prostitution sting

Posted February 25, 2019

"We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity", Kraft's spokesperson said in a statement to USA Today.

What will be part of this story eventually will be the NFL's personal conduct policy, that says both players and owners (really, all league personnel) "must refrain from contuct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the NFL".

In 2014, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay was suspended six games and fined $500,000 following his guilty plea to a misdemeanor DWI charge.

Kraft, who also owns the New England Revolution MLS franchise, denied the accusations on Friday afternoon.

In a statement, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said, "The NFL is aware of the ongoing law enforcement matter and will continue to monitor developments".
