03/24/2019 8:51am

Robert Kraft issued his first statement on Saturday since being charged with soliciting prostitution last month.I am truly sorry. I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard, his statement said. Columbine Families Gather to Tell Stories Nearly 20 Years on Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing. The last thing I would ever want to do is disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women my morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years.Kraft said in his statement that he had been wanting to apologize since charges were filed against him but had to remain silent in deference to the judicial process. Suddenly, Cost-Cutting States Turn Friendly to Teachers I expect to be judged not by my words, but by my actions. And through those actions, I hope to regain your confidence and respect, his statement concluded.Legal experts say this statement is an indication that Kraft may take a plea deal. Failed Alzheimers Trial Leaves Families Heartbroken Meanwhile, fans are sticking by him.The fact that he apologized shows hes truly sorry and hes owning up to his mistakes, one fan said.Another Pats fan says he believes Kraft is a good person, and he hopes this will shine a light on the larger issue.When youre a person thats in the public eye like this, thats responsible for such a huge entity like the Patriots, I think that theres some responsibility that comes with that. And what makes his missteps kind of worse, Niman Kennre said. He needs to take responsibility.On Friday, an attorney for New England Patriots owner told ESPN a video of his client at a Florida spa, where he allegedly solicited prostitution, was obtained illegally.Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted a statement from attorney William Burck Friday evening.There was no human trafficking and law enforcement knows it. The video and the traffic stop were illegal and law enforcement just doesnt want to admit it, Burck said, according to Schefter. The state attorney needs to step up and do the right thing and investigate how the evidence in this case was obtained.William Snyder, sheriff of Martin County, Florida, told CNBC Thursday that he expects the explicit, sexual and graphic content on the surveillance videos to be made public.I watched and just left the room, Snyder said. There is nothing to see. Its pretty ugly.Kraft, 77, is one of hundreds charged in in the Palm Beach County prostitution sting. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of solicitation. Prosecutors have reportedly offered to drop the charges if Kraft and the other suspects admit they would have been found guilty at trial, complete a course and 100 hours of community service. The deal also reportedly stipulates that the suspects be screened for sexually transmitted diseases.After the charges were announced on Feb. 22, a spokesperson said, We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity.The spotlight will be on Kraft Sunday as the NFL kicks off its annual league meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.Photo Credit: Scott Halleran/Getty Images
