News that Robert Kraft is being charged with involvement in a prostitution ring are emerging from Florida and Massachusetts. Kraft is one of 25 men allegedly caught in the sting as clients of a massage parlor, at which they are said to have participated in sexual acts with workers.

The New England Patriots owner is the most high-profile person involved at this time. According to police, he was video taped at the Jupiter, Florida parlor twice.

At this time, Kraft's spokesperson has "categorically denied" any involvement, even with word that video exists. New reports are emerging, shedding more light on the situation.

There is an active warrant for Kraft's arrest in Florida at this time.

While Robert Kraft's involvement has drawn headlines, and jeers from NFL fans and media, details of the prostitution ring itself are pretty horrifying.

It is obviously unclear what Kraft is alleged to know about the business, and the particulars of his involvement are still a bit hazy. The women working at the parlor were allegedly brought in from other countries under the pretense that they would receive "legitimate jobs," and were instead used as prostitutes.

The conditions the women are said to have faced at the parlor are also horrid.

We'll have more as it released from both the authorities, and Kraft, on this issue.
