In February, authorities announced that Kraft was videotaped twice paying for a sex act at an illicit massage parlor. Kraft, 77, is among more than 200 people who, police said, engaged in sex acts with employees of targeted massage parlors in South Florida.
The plea comes days after Kraft apologized in his first public comment since being charged for allegedly receiving sexual services at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida, on Jan. 19 and 20.
“I am truly sorry,” Kraft said in a statement on March 23. “I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”
Meanwhile Kraft is busy at the Owners meetings.

Something tells me Bob is not going to get the happy ending result he yearns for in this case.
Unless it’s a jury of his peers, which in that case, he just might.
