New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has officially been charged with two first-degree misdemeanors for soliciting prostitution at a massage parlor in Jupiter, Florida.

It's unlikely that Kraft, 77, will actually be serving any jail time, even though his charges could be punishable by up to one year in jail.

A law enforcement official has said that it's highly unlikely that Kraft will be serving any jail time.

"Law enforcement officials say it’s extremely unlikely Kraft would serve jail time if he pleads/is convicted. He’s charged with two misdemeanor counts. Kraft’s attorneys denied that he broke the law," ESPN's T.J. Quinn tweeted.

Kraft is alleged to have visited the massage parlor twice, including the morning of the AFC Championship Game.

A court date has been set for late April, though Kraft will reportedly not be required to show up. There will reportedly be no mugshot, either.

The NFL has released multiple statements on Kraft's situation, saying the league continues to monitor and investigate.

It's unclear at this point if Kraft will be facing any punishment from the league.
