New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft who was charged with solicitation of a prostitute last month has finally spoken out after four weeks of silence. In his statement Kraft says, “In deference to the judicial process, I have remained silent these past several weeks. To correct some of the misinformation surrounding this matter, my attorney made his first public comments on Friday night. I would like to use this opportunity to say something that I have wanted to say for four weeks.”

“I am truly sorry. 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.”

His statement continues, “Throughout my life, I have always tried to do the right thing. The last thing I would ever want to do is disrespect another human being. I have extraordinary respect for women; my morals and my soul were shaped by the most wonderful woman, the love of my life, who I was blessed to have as my partner for 50 years.”

Earlier this week, it was reported that Kraft was offered a plea deal for his part in the crime. Which Kraft and his legal team have yet to accept.

Kraft added in his statement, “As I move forward, I hope to continue to use the platform with which I have been blessed to help others and to try to make a difference. I expect to be judged not by my words, but by my actions … I hope to regain your confidence and respect.”
