CNN: Prosecutors appeal decision suppressing video in Patriots owner Robert Kraft's prostitution

I totally forgot about this case until the story came up about the appeal.


(CNN)Florida prosecutors pushed a state appeals court on Tuesday to overturn last year's decision suppressing video of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft inside a massage parlor.

The appeal stems from the criminal case against Kraft, 78, who was charged with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution in February 2019. The powerful NFL owner was one of dozens of spa patrons allegedly caught on secret cameras receiving illicit massages at the spa in January 2019.

Kraft's attorneys challenged the validity of the search warrant that let authorities install hidden cameras inside the spa, saying it violated his Fourth Amendment rights and Florida law. A Palm Beach County judge agreed in May 2019 and ruled to suppress the video, effectively gutting the criminal case against him.

On Tuesday, Florida Deputy Solicitor General Jeffrey DeSousa asked the West Palm Beach Florida's Fourth District Court of Appeal to reverse that decision and defended the search warrant.
