Through a spokeswoman, Yang told the Palm Beach Post on Wednesday that she has never met Kraft.

According to the motion, state law exempts the videos from public view because they involve "active criminal intelligence information and/or active criminal investigative information".

Kraft received an offer that wold have resulted in the charges being dropped, provided he would admit that he would be found guilty of soliciting prostitution if the case went to trial.

According to multiple reports, the Patriots owner will not accept a plea deal offered to him by Florida prosecutors.

In addition, ESPN's T.J. Quinn adds Kraft filed a motion to suppress the evidence (notably the video evidence), which is in case there's no deal reached that would automatically seal it.


The Palm Beach County State Attorney's office offered Kraft and 24 other men a diversion deal Monday night that would allow the men to avoid prosecution if they meet certain conditions. Kraft has pleaded not guilty, and has publicly denied committing any crimes, despite law enforcement's claims of video evidence. Sources said that the two sides were continuing to negotiate and that Kraft had not rejected the deal outright.

As part of the statute, Kraft would have had to perform 100 hours of community service, attend a class on the dangers of prostitution and pay a $5,000 fine per count, according to Edmondson. However, according to local legal experts, first-time offenders like Kraft are unlikely to receive jail time.

A person looks in a window of the Orchids of Asia Day Spa where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is charged with allegedly soliciting for sex on February 22, 2019 in Jupiter, Fla.

The investigation has targeted storefront day spas in Jupiter and in Martin and Indian River counties that has led to arrests both of people who ran the businesses and the men who used them.

Police said Kraft twice visited the Orchids of Asia Day Spa.
