Judge blocks release of Robert Kraft surveillance video at Jupiter day spa

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A Palm Beach County judge has ruled surveillance video that allegedly shows New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft receiving a sex act at a Jupiter day spa cannot be released.

Police said Kraft solicited sex at Orchids of Asia Day Spa in January. He's pleaded not guilty to charges of soliciting another to commit prostitution.

At a hearing earlier this month, Kraft's attorneys asked Judge Leonard Hanser to seal videos of Kraft's alleged sex acts with a spa worker from public view.

Defense attorney William Burck argued the release of the footage would hurt Kraft’s right to a fair trial.

Attorneys representing media organizations said sealing the video would be a violation of Florida's Sunshine Law, or public records law, which could hurt future cases.

Judge Hanser ruled Tuesday the video cannot be released for now.
