Kraft attorneys ask courts to ensure videos are never released publicly
Immediately the videos were suppressed for trial purposes, his attorneys have asked a judge to modify a previously issued protective order. This would prevent the videos from ever being released.
Kraft faces two counts of soliciting prostitution after allegedly visiting the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter. He’s denied the allegations.
The judge in Kraft’s case has already issued a protective order on releasing the video publicly before the trial begins. He said it was necessary for a fair trial.
On Monday, the judge granted Kraft’s motion to suppress, writing in part that Kraft had a “reasonable, subjective expectation of privacy, as would anyone seeking a private massage in a commercial or professional setting.”
The judge also suppressed all information obtained from the traffic stop involving Kraft in January.
The State Attorney’s Office can appeal the order. Kraft is due in court on May 21
