Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, is charged with soliciting prostitution in connection to a Florida spa that police allege was the center of an international human trafficking ring. Authorities claim there is video evidence of Kraft and other prominent individuals involved in sex acts.
NFL owner Robert Kraft isn’t the only prominent name- or billionaire- involved in the Florida’s biggest “Human Trafficking” bust. Among 150 other men linked to Florida spa, Billionaire Wall Street Financier John Childs, a former Citi group president and a president of a Florida Boys and Girls Club, golfer Jonny DelPrete and three former law enforcement officials are also charged with crime.
Through a spokesperson, Kraft has declared the allegations are not true.

The 77-year-old billionaire was charged with paying for sexual services at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida, on two occasion- January 19th and 20th. He has not been arrested but a misdemeanor warrant has been issued. According to arrest records, the Asia Spa was one of the 10 that were reportedly shut down in Florida after a seven-month investigation found women in ‘sexual servitude’. About 200 arrest warrants have been issued in recent days and more are expected depending on further investigation.
Vero Beach police Chief David Currey, whose agency has been involved in the sex-trafficking investigation, told reporters that the prostitutes are the “victims of human trafficking” and have been trapped into the trade. The victims were lured from China with promises of legitimate worked and then trapped in a life of sexual slavery.

Polaris, an anti-trafficking group, stated that Florida has approximately 9000 illicit massage parlors that make $2.5 billion in a year. Anti-trafficking activists believe the reason behind such a lucrative industry is because of involvement of prominent people such as Robert Kraft, John Childs and more.
Human Trafficking is a growing problem worldwide and Florida has been identified as a hub for human trafficking activity in the United States. Recurring human-trafficking cases in Florida as questioned the ability of government to end the modern-day slavery. This month, 169 people were arrested in a sex-trafficking sting before the Super Bowl LIII. Florida has been on news more times for human/sex-trafficking. Example, In December last year, more than 100 suspects arrested in a human trafficking operation in Polk Country, Florida. While on good days, law enforcement personnel in Florida arrests suspects for enslaving a teenaged boy for sex. The thirteen Amendment, which was enacted in 1865, officially made ALL slavery illegal in the United States. However, present statistics show that slavery is still alive and flourishing throughout the States and entire world.
Robert Kraft case would be complex one as activists and reporters believe that much bigger fish could involve. Law enforcement agencies need to investigate this case thoroughly in order to identify the prominent people and mastermind. Investigating human trafficking and illegal immigration case are lengthy process with limited evidence as the victims do not cooperate to provide accurate intelligence and evidence due to fear of deportation or criminal charges. In this case, irrespective of using hidden camera and undercover agents, law enforcement took six months to press charges and investigation still continues.
Anti-trafficking activists in Florida raise various question regarding the recent Florida “Human Trafficking” bust as Police stated the investigation took approximately six months to press charges against Robert Kraft and others. If the women employed at these businesses- parlor- were really the victims of “modern slavery”, why did police take six months to get them out of that situation?
In human trafficking cases, Law enforcement spent large sum of tax-payers money, resources and time identifying clients, the handler managing the trafficking victims, tracing finance. With involvement of billionaire like Robert Kraft and John Childs, and former law enforcement agents, investigation becomes more challenging because of the pressure from the public and media. It is the duty of government and law enforcement agencies to prevent such act of modern-slavery.
Question rises as why law enforcement agencies takes months and years to identify every client before they intervene? Is it right to use the trafficking victims as trap?

In order to reveal the truth behind the spa, a non-intrusive, affordable and efficient technology with nearly perfect accuracy is desperately needed by Florida law enforcement personnel to identify the perpetrator, accomplices and mastermind without exploiting the victims.
