Florida judge temporarily seals video allegedly showing Robert Kraft in prostitution sting

  • Judge Leonard Hanser temporarily sealed the video based on Kraft's fair trial rights, and ruled that it can be released once a jury is sworn, the case is resolved via plea agreement or the prosecutors decide they no longer wants to pursue the charges.
  • Kraft's lawyers have maintained that releasing the video would violate his constitutional rights and hamper his chance for a fair trial.
  • The Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office had said in court documents it would release video showing Kraft and 24 other men charged after a monthslong, multijurisdictional sting.
  • Prosecutors offered to drop the charges in exchange for fines, community service and an admission that he would be found guilty if he went to trial, but a source familiar with the case told CNN that Kraft would not accept the deal.
