I'm less concerned about the prostitution than the allegations of sex trafficking.

I am really surprised that he went to a place like that, what with being a billionaire and all.

I'm not. The really cynical side of me thinks that women being trafficked are much easier to abuse and get away with it than women who are choosing sex work, and women who are in a place like that are more likely to be trafficked.

I get that Ryda, but I sort of figured that at a high end place, you could basically get (and do) what you want, for the right price, and not have to worry about arrests. Or maybe I have read too many books. Either way, I hope he gets treated like other johns who get arrested.

Cynic mode ON. You mean let off, usually without being identified (that didn't happen) while the woman is charged. Cynic mode OFF. Well, not really.

What could be next for massage parlor workers discovered in Florida sex-trafficking bust

Quote:
If the women are designated as human trafficking victims, they would be eligible for a special visa, experts say.

On Friday, Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida.
