New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is being charged with soliciting prostitution as part of sex sting operation in Jupiter, Fla.

In return, the charges of misdemeanor soliciting prostitution would be dropped.

- The Wall Street Journal is reporting that prosecutors are offering to drop solicitation charges against Robert Kraft and several other men but the men must admit they would have been proven guilty at trial.

If they do, they will have to complete 100 hours of community service, undergo testing for sexually transmitted diseases, pay all of their court costs, and finally, complete an educational course on prostitution. Edmondson said none have accepted so far.

Attorneys for Kraft, when asked about the report Tuesday by ESPN's T.J. Quinn, declined to comment. Kraft is among more than 200 people, police say, who engaged in sex acts with employees of targeted massage parlors in South Florida.

With that said, investigators maintain that they have graphic surveillance video that shows the 77-year-old enter the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida on two separate occasions, of which he then received sexual favors in exchange for money.

Investigators said Kraft returned 17 hours later, arriving at the upper-middle class shopping center where the spa was located in a chauffeured 2015 blue Bentley, the documents said.

Kraft has denied wrongdoing. Kraft's wife, Myra Hiatt Kraft, died in 2011.

It was the second time in two days Kraft had visited the massage parlor, which was among 10 area spas targeted in a major crackdown on human trafficking and prostitution.

Numerous alleged operators and workers were born in China and Chinese translators are being used to interview women connected with the businesses, according to court documents.
