Lawyers for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft have requested a jury trial and pleaded not guilty to all charges on his behalf in the major sex trafficking and prostitution sting that broke last month, according to records filed Tuesday. Kraft’s attorneys waived the billionaire’s Thursday arraignment, pleaded not guilty to all charges on his behalf, and requested a jury trial. Kraft is facing charges of soliciting prostitution, a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail, a $5,000 penalty, and a mandatory 100 hours of community service. Florida prosecutors offered a deal to drop the charges against Kraft, but only if he admits he would’ve been found guilty at trial. The deal also demands the accused complete an education course about prostitution, 100 hours of community service, and get screened for sexually transmitted diseases.
