And, among other costumers, a video recorded the presence of Robert Kraft receiving one of those special massages. Few weeks before Robert Kraft being investigated, the Police simulating a bomb treat, entered the premises of the spa with the intent of implanting micro-cameras to record and collect evidences of the prostitution ring in those spas.

Kraft was not convicted due to a lack of evidence, although there was a video of him receiving sexual intercourse within one of the spas. This video was ruled out from the judges due to a police error of securing all customers’ privacy, particularly ones that were getting legitimate massages.
