Normally, he’s not one to leave a happy ending on the table . . .
But sources tell us there’s “absolutely no way” Patriots owner and accused rub-and-tug recipient Robert Kraft will take the no-plea deal that Florida prosecutors are offering in his prostitution-solicitation case.
Kraft was charged with two misdemeanors after he was caught on camera allegedly trading cash for sexual favors at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Fla., on Jan. 18 and Jan. 22 — shortly before his team won its sixth Super Bowl.
He has pleaded not guilty.
But now the state attorney’s office says it will drop the charges if he admits he would have been found guilty at trial of soliciting a prostitute.
“This is a standard first-time offender plea offer,” said Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office spokesman Mike Edmondson.
The office extended the offer to 24 other men arrested in the case, but no one has accepted it so far, Edmondson said.
Kraft and the other accused johns would also have to submit to an STD test, take a class on the dangers of prostitution, complete 100 hours of community service and pay $10,000 in court fees.
“One-hundred percent no way he’s taking the deal,” a source told us of Kraft.
“Kraft strongly insists he didn’t do anything wrong, and he isn’t going to take a deal that indicates he did.”
