New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, 77, has been offered to have charges of prostitution solicitation dropped by prosecutors if he, in part, agrees to admit that he would be found guilty if such charges were to be brought to trial, sources told The Wall Street Journal on Monday.
A spokesman for Palm Beach County's state attorney confirmed Tuesday that Kraft and 24 other men charged with soliciting prostitution have been offered the standard diversion program for first-time offenders.
Kraft and the other accused johns would also have to submit to an STD test, take a class on the dangers of prostitution, complete 100 hours of community service and pay $10,000 in court fees. Kraft has denied all wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to the charges. The plea deal was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

Kraft's lawyers did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday.
Per the WSJ, "it isn't clear whether Mr. Kraft and others would accept such a condition".
Officials said the encounters occurred at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, about 80 miles north of Miami. He allegedly visited the Orchids of Asia Day Spa on January 19 and January 20, and during both visits, paying for sex acts by a woman. The report said Kraft was driven to the spa on both occasions. Police said they meant to stop a growing human-trafficking problem, but no one was charged with human trafficking in the case. Numerous women are originally from China, were forced to live in the spas and were not allowed to leave without an escort, according to investigators. Kraft, who is worth $6 billion, was videotaped engaging in sex acts before paying with a $100 bill and another bill, police said. Kraft's wife, Myra Hiatt Kraft, died in 2011.
