🙅♀️Nope I don’t need to see it. I’m good on that.
A circuit judge in Palm Beach County has given New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft the temporary protective order he requested—preventing law enforcement from releasing copies of videos that, according to police, show the billionaire twice receiving sexual acts at a massage parlor. Circuit Judge Joseph Marx granted the order Wednesday at an emergency hearing, according to ABC. The hearing included prosecutors, Kraft’s defense lawyers, and members of the media, who have requested copies of the videos under Florida’s public records law.
Per ESPN, Marx gave the following explanation for issuing the temporary ban: “I may be on shaky grounds, media, but right is right. To have this happen without a judge passing judgment on it is just wrong. So I am ordering, I am barring its release until this court ... don’t want this released until I’ve ruled.” Kraft is charged with two counts of misdemeanor solicitation of prostitution, to which he’s pleaded not guilty. Marx isn’t the judge overseeing Kraft’s case (County Judge Leonard Hanser is), but Marx is presiding over the case of Lei Wang, who managed the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida, and Hua Zhang, who owned the massage parlor. Wang and Zhang are charged with multiple counts of soliciting others to commit prostitution and both have pleaded not guilty. The videos taken, including those of Kraft, are considered evidence in their cases as well. Via Deadspin
