New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft who was charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution a month ago issued a formal apology on Saturday to his family, friends, and fans.
“I am truly sorry,” Kraft said in a statement Saturday. “I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”
“Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing,” he said. “The last thing I would ever want to do is disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women; my morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years.”
“As I move forward, I hope to continue to use the platform with which I have been blessed to help others and to try to make a difference. I expect to be judged not by my words, but by my actions. And through those actions, I hope to regain your confidence and respect,” he added.
Kraft pleaded not guilty to the charges and has denied that he committed a crime.
I’m by no means judging a man who was married for 50 years and lost his wife. Kraft is now 77. I honestly don’t know what he’s even apologizing for if he’s not guilty. I’m baffled by this honestly. I like Robert Kraft, he’s single, and a widow. I don’t judge him, but I’m not sure many will understand his apology today.
