Robert Kraft just keeps winning.
The New England Patriots owner scored another legal victory Wednesday when a Florida appeals court sided with a lower court decision to throw out video evidence in a solicitation of prostitution case against him.
Video recordings showing Robert Kraft and other men paying for sex acts at a massage parlor will not be allowed as evidence in criminal cases against them.
“The type of law enforcement surveillance utilized in these cases is extreme,” the appellate court ruling said. “While there will be situations which may warrant the use of the techniques at issue, the strict Fourth Amendment safeguards developed over the past few decades must be observed. If they are not, any evidence obtained could very well be declared inadmissible as a matter of constitutional law.”
Prosecutors must now decide how to move forward without the use of video evidence in the Kraft case.
