On Monday afternoon, prosecutors in Palm Beach County released probable cause affidavits for the 25 men charged in the prostitution and human trafficking sting at a Jupiter, Florida, massage parlor.

That includes the document for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. That file reveals that Kraft was allegedly at the parlor on Jan. 20, the day his team played in the AFC championship game.

Police: Kraft began Jan. 20 in Jupiter

According to the affidavit, video surveillance captured Kraft dropped off at Orchids of Asia just before 11 a.m. ET. He entered the business through the front door, paid cash to a woman at the front desk, and was escorted to a room.

Surveillance video inside the room captured Kraft, who hugged the woman inside before he took off his clothes and laid face up on a massage table. He received oral sex, got dressed, hugged the woman again and gave her a $100 bill and at least one other bill.

He left the room 11 minutes after entering it.

Police say Kraft was also at the parlor the day before, on Jan. 19.

Finished the day in Kansas City

Kraft could have easily left Orchids of Asia and flown to Kansas City in time for the AFC championship game.

It’s a roughly three-hour flight from the Palm Beach area to Kansas City, and kickoff for the AFC championship game was 6:40 p.m. ET. There are photos by Associated Press photographers of Kraft on the field well before kickoff of the game, which the Patriots won, 37-31 in overtime.

Court date: April 24

Kraft has been issued a summons to appear in court on April 24 to face charges of first-degree solicitation, a misdemeanor. Because he is a resident of Palm Beach County, he does not have to appear in court himself and can send an attorney on his behalf.

If he is found guilty, there is a mandatory $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and a class on the dangers of prostitution. He could also receive up to one year of jail time.
