The Patriots nation is shocked by the solicitation charges against team owner Robert Kraft. Devin McCourty reacted to the scandal.
Being charged on solicitation is a huge bite to swallow, and we are waiting for more information on the case.
“When you see things come out like that you really have to just let it play out,” safety Devin McCourty said. “See what it is, what it isn’t, and go from there. For me, RKK has been a great person to lean on as far as social justice stuff, a guy to lean on, a guy to talk to, always present in the locker room, always there to talk to guys. I’ve had the opportunity to build that kind of relationship with him. With what’s transpired, you really just have to let it play out and see what happens.”
McCourty played nine seasons
in Foxboro. The Patriots co-captain sahd he has a nice relationship with the
team owner. Kraft became owner in 1994.
“Charges have been filed, but he has not
been arrested,” Jupiter police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said of the
case. They are working on a
warrant, but it is an inside matter.
“The tentacles of this go from here to New York to China, in
Florida from here to Orange County,” Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said. So, yes, this is a huge scandal, and
it involves around hundred men.
“He is one of the individuals. That would be Mr. Robert Kraft,” a top police official said during a press conference. “He is being charged with the same offense as the others, and that is soliciting another to commit prostitution. We’re as equally stunned as anyone else.”
Kraft denies involvement in solicitation scandal
Patriots owner Kraft denies his involvement in “any illegal activity.”
“We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in
any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be
commenting further,” said the spokesman.
