Robert Kraft’s lawyers claim cops deliberately misled judge to get ‘spying’ warrant for massage parlor cameras

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft accuses Jupiter police of going to “astonishing lengths” to mislead a judge into approving the “sneak and peek” warrant that allowed secret cameras in a massage parlor.

Videos from the investigation resulted in misdemeanor charges of soliciting prostitution for Kraft, a 77-year-old billionaire with a Palm Beach address, and 24 other men.

Kraft’s lawyers this week released a copy of the Jan. 15 warrant, enabling the public to see for the first time how the cops got permission for the cameras and what Kraft’s defense calls “eye-popping invasions.”

The lawyers claim police were able to convince a Palm Beach County judge the warrant was justified by alluding to human-trafficking crimes — while the real purpose was going after prostitution. The defense now wants another Palm Beach County judge to declare the warrant unconstitutional and block prosecutors from using the videos in Kraft’s trial.

Police “had no authority whatsoever for something as drastic as ‘sneak and peek’ video surveillance, much less continuous, unbounded video surveillance of naked patrons in private licensed massage parlors,” wrote attorneys Jack Goldberger, Alex Spiro and William Burck.

They contend using a “spying” warrant for prostitution activity was so illegal under federal and state law that the judge could simply rule in Kraft’s favor without a hearing.

Police have said that within a day of installing the cameras, they recorded Kraft paying for sex acts on Jan. 19 and Jan. 20 at Orchids of Asia Day Spa. He was charged a month later at the same time as the other men, along with the owner and manager of the business.

Kraft has since rejected a standard offer for first-time offenders to have the counts dropped under various conditions, including the payment of a fine and performing community service hours.
