We know the angle, and so do the authorities. The Kraft press release is specific and artful. “He didn’t do anything illegal.”Kraft, at this point, is the biggest name involved ... and he has come out and denied he did anything illegal. The police saying they will release the video simply might be their way of saying he might want to cut a deal before he's embarrassed further.
They're not going out of their way. They got a famous person involved in a case, which can bring attention to a serious issue. It keeps the case in the national spotlight.
Translated. I didn’t pay for the hand job. That was consensual. I paid for standard massage. Prove otherwise.
If that’s all that $1500/hr from Ropes and Gray gets you these days — well that’s all they got.
Which is fine — until the tape makes it into evidence. You want to play these games, fine.
Cut your losses pal.
