- State attorney’s office cites obligation under public records laws
- Lawyer for Kraft had lobbied to bar release of surveillance video
- Kraft, 77, has pleaded not guilty to two charges of soliciting sex
A surveillance video that led to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s ensnarement in a prostitution sting at a massage parlor will be released to the public, prosecutors said Wednesday in court filings, citing their obligation under Florida’s public records laws.
Lawyers for the 77-year-old Kraft had asked judge Leonard Hanser not to make public the video, calling the evidence “basically pornography”.
