Florida prosecutors have decided Wednesday that they will be releasing the never-before-seen surveillance tape of Patriots Owner Robert Kraft allegedly paying for a sexual encounter at a Jupiter, Florida, massage parlor.
According to John Ellement of the Boston Globe, court papers have been submitted by Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronburg stating that it is the obligation of the prosecution, under Florida law, to provide the public with said video.
The prosecution claims, “as the custodian of the records, [it] cannot delay the release of records to allow a person to raise a constitutional challenge to the release of the documents,” adding that “[t]he Public Records Act does not allow a custodian to delay the production of records to allow the resolution of a constitutional challenge to the release of the documents.”
Basically, the prosecution wants the tape and they want it now. The longer they delay the release, the more time Kraft’s legal team has to find a reason to block its public reveal. Right now, it looks like it is a matter of “when” instead of “if” which bring the most important question of all… “Do I watch it?”
The answer: ABSOLUTELY.
Stop thinking about the fact that Kraft is 77 years old. Stop thinking about the anti-climactic (well, for you at least) plot. Think of it more as every other celebrity sex tape and the part of a 30 for 30 where everything goes wrong.
