Florida prosecutors offered a deal to New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft whereby charges that he solicited prostitution would be dropped in exchange for Kraft admitting that he would be found guilty at trial, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

Under the terms of the reported deferred prosecution agreement, Kraft would be screened for sexually transmitted diseased, complete a class on prostitution, finish 100 hours of community service, and pay some court costs from the case.

Kraft denies the charges.

The WSJ also reported that legal experts had raised questions over Florida prosecutors’ conduct in the case.

Kraft’s charging last month attracted scrutiny to the founder of the spa where he allegedly paid for sex. The founder — Cindy Yang — was later found to be peddling access to Trump via Mar-a-Lago, and has ties to Chinese government groups.
