A lawyer for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Friday the public release of video evidence at the prostitution solicitation case against him would invade his privacy and jeopardize his right to a fair trial.
William Burck told that a Palm Beach County judge that publishing the video would simply satisfy a”prurient interest” within a hearing held in part to determine whether media outlets — for example ESPN — would possibly offer arguments in the instance.
Jupiter authorities obtained a search warrant to record at the Orchids of Asia DaySpa at Jupiter, Florida. Authorities say those cameras recorded. Kraft was charged with 2 counts of solicitation within 10 massage parlors a Multi County investigation that led in approximately 300 clients having been charged and their owners.
Assistant State Attorney Greg Kridos told the judge Friday there was no evidence of trafficking at the Jupiter health spa, although investigators said they targeted traffickers.
Burck explained the previously highly publicized allegations of human trafficking by both authorities and Condition Attorney Dave Aronberg had resorted to”politicking” they inserted to potential harm to Kraft’s solitude in discharging video evidence.
Attorneys for networking outlets say redacted versions of the evidence ought to be released on public interest reasons, and Judge Leonard Hanser said Friday he would grant their motion to intervene in case.
Parties were given a deadline of Tuesday to publish documents by him.
Kraft’s attorneys state that the videos are not vital as the affidavits describe the acts that took 29, to be released and are still an illegal invasion of privacy. They are looking for a motion to suppress the videos, asserting they also would mar chances for a good trial.
