Tuesday, news broke that New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft would be offered a plea deal by Florida prosecutors in the case against him for alleged prostitution solicitation at a day spa in Jupiter, Florida. It looks like he's made a decision on whether he'll take it.

Prosecutors reportedly offered to drop the misdemeanor charges if Kraft agreed to a fine, community service and an admission of guilt. It does not look like Kraft will be taking them up on the deal.

CNN is reporting Wednesday morning that Kraft will not accept the deal. Instead, he'll be arraigned on March 28. According to Mike Edmonson, spokesman for the Palm Beach State Attorney's Office, the charges against Kraft "generally" carry no more than 60 days of jail time.

It's not surprising that Kraft didn't take the deal - but it'll be interesting to see if he regrets the decision.

Police contend that Kraft was filmed twice receiving paid sexual acts at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida. He's been charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution.
