Judge once again blocks release of Robert Kraft video

Monday a Florida judge again blocked the public release judge of the secretly-generated videos showing Kraft and 24 others charged with solicitation of prostitution at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida.

Monday’s hearing apparently arose from an April 18 request by spa manager Lei Wang, who is separately charged with prostitution, to hold the Palm Beach County state attorney’s office and the Jupiter police in contempt of court due to reports that the Kraft video was being offered for sale. Officials claimed that they are confident the Kraft video hasn’t leaked; the presiding judge again blocked public release of the video.

The judge presiding over the charges pending against Kraft has ruled that the video shall remain secret until a jury is sworn in at the trial of his case, the charges against him are dismissed, or a plea agreement is entered. The plea deal offered to Kraft in March would result in the video being permanently being sealed; however, he would have to admit as part of the dismissal of the charges that a trial would have resulted in a conviction.
