Six time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was arrested on Friday in a months long human-tracking and prostituion sting.
Kraft was charged on two counts after being spotted numerous times entering massage/spa parlors in Palm Beach County, Florida where the Patriots owner was involved in sex acts according to Police.
Police noted that the women performing the sex acts not only worked at the spas, but lived there too.
According to Deadspin, Vero Beach police chief David Currey said many of the women came from China on temporary work visas, indebted to the the brokers who helped them reach America, but believing legitimate jobs awaited them.
“Some of them are trying to make a better life for themselves,” he said. “These people truly are stuck.”
They were shamed, intimidated and taught not to speak to law enforcement or immigration officials.
Others answered what they thought were legitimate ads for masseuse jobs, but soon were pressured into doing more.
Another four spas, according to a separate TCPalm report, were in Martin County. A fifth case was in the town of Jupiter. A 16-page probable cause affidavit in the Jupiter case said that as part the investigation officers would do traffic stops on vehicles when they left the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. The affidavit states that officers were told multiple times by the drivers that, inside the spa, a woman had stimulated their penis until climax.
Kraft has denied all of the allegations.
