Kraft, 77, was charged with two counts of soliciting a prostitute at a Jupiter, Florida, massage parlor as part of a larger sting operation in Palm Beach County.

But in an unusual provision, the agreement also calls for the defendants to review the evidence in the case and agree that, if it were to go to trial, the state would be able to prove their guilt, this person said.

As the report explains, it's unclear whether or not the men will take the deal. If Kraft refuses the deal, he would be put on trial and, if found guilty, face a possible year in jail, although that would be unlikely. The Patriots owner was charged with two misdemeanor counts of first-degree solicitation. Prosecutors have extended an offer to the men charged in this case, but it comes with conditions.

Upon completion of the program, misdemeanor soliciting prostitution charges would be dropped. In exchange, they can get their charges dropped, and then later expunged from their record.

Palm Beach County prosecutors declined to comment, the Wall Street Journal said.

Kraft is alleged to have visited Orchids of Asia Day Spa, just one of a collection of spas in South Florida that were under investigation in a probe into human trafficking, where he paid cash to engage in sex acts.

According to the police report, Kraft was at the spa the day before and the morning of New England's 37-31 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.

The documents said numerous workers were forced to live at the spas and were not allowed to leave without an escort.

Kraft, a friend and supporter of President Donald Trump, could face discipline from the National Football League under a policy that applies to team owners and prohibits "conduct detrimental to the integrity" of the NFL.
