Days after Kraft ruling, judge in Florida nixes spa video

May 16, 2019 - 2:50 PM

VERO BEACH, Fla. - A judge is barring prosecutors from using surveillance video taken inside a Florida massage parlour in a prostitution case, days after another judge suppressed video in a similar case involving New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

The Indian River County judge ruled Thursday that agents fell short in minimizing invasion of privacy for legitimate patrons. Hidden cameras were installed inside the East Spa by Homeland Security agents working with Vero Beach police.

A Palm Beach County judge Monday blocked use of video allegedly showing Kraft engaging in paid sex at a Jupiter spa. Kraft has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanour solicitation of a prostitute.

A Martin County judge recently made a similar ruling involving two other spas.

Some 300 men were charged after busts at 10 massage parlours in February.
