Patriots owner Robert Kraft apologized in his first public comment since he was charged with solicitation last month after visiting a Florida day spa.
“I am truly sorry,” Kraft, 77, said in a statement, ESPN reported. “I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.”
