PHOENIX — In a sign that his standoff with prosecutors holds little immediate hope of easing, Robert K. Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, on Tuesday waived his arraignment for charges of soliciting prostitution and requested a jury trial, according to a court filing.
A hearing in the case was scheduled for Thursday in Florida. Mr. Kraft, who has pleaded not guilty, was not planning to attend.
The request for a jury trial, announced in a brief court filing in Palm Beach County, raises the stakes in a case that most defendants settle quickly and quietly. But Mr. Kraft, one of the most powerful owners in sports, is unwilling to simply take the terms offered by prosecutors.
Instead, he has insisted that he has done nothing illegal and wants to clear his name to protect his reputation, according to people close to the 77-year-old billionaire. The case began a month ago and has generated headlines across the globe for its mix of celebrity, sex and sports. Now it is likely to carry on for weeks and perhaps months.
The stalemate between Mr. Kraft’s high-priced legal team and law enforcement officials in Palm Beach County hinges on two things: The terms of a proposed deal and the status of any video evidence of Mr. Kraft.
Last week, prosecutors offered to drop the two misdemeanor charges against Mr. Kraft, but the proposed deal required him to admit that he would have been found guilty at trial on the charges. Many defendants in these types of cases routinely accept such terms to avoid the cost and potential embarrassment of fighting them.
But Mr. Kraft is not backing down. His legal team and prosecutors spent much of last week trying to get prosecutors to alter the terms of the deal offered to him and 24 other men who were similarly accused of soliciting prostitution at a massage parlor in Jupiter, Fla., called Orchids of Asia Day Spa. But Mr. Kraft and many of the other men are unwilling to admit guilt because they believe the police mishandled aspects of the case.
They contend that a search warrant was improperly obtained to install secret cameras inside the massage parlor. According to the police, the video shows Mr. Kraft and the other men soliciting sex. The pretext for that warrant was predicated on the existence of human trafficking at that massage parlor, something that the police have not yet proven and that Mr. Kraft’s lawyers insist did not exist.
At the same time, Mr. Kraft and 14 of the other men last week filed a motion asking the court to ensure that all evidence in the case, particularly the surveillance video, be kept private to avoid bias among potential jurors. That request prompted an unusual response from Sheriff William Snyder of Martin County. He said the video evidence would most likely be made public once the case ends.
Legal experts in Florida said that Mr. Kraft ran the risk of having the video being made public at a trial, as well. It is possible, though, that the two sides will reach an agreement before a trial begins.
Throughout the case, Mr. Kraft has kept a low profile. He appeared at a party before the Oscars, and attended a concert this month by his friend Meek Mill. Usually, he is regularly spotted in Boston, New York, Los Angeles and Palm Beach, where he often stays in the winter.
He has also been largely out of view at the N.F.L.’s annual meeting, being held in Phoenix through Tuesday. Normally, he speaks freely to reporters in the hotel lobby and other public spaces. Instead, he has used hallways and roped off areas at the Biltmore Hotel to avoid questions. Unlike many other team owners, he did not attend an elaborate cocktail party hosted by the N.F.L. on Monday night.
He dined Tuesday with his oldest son, Jonathan, at a restaurant inside the hotel, but he has declined requests to speak.
Other than his first statement made the day charges were announced on Feb. 22, Mr. Kraft’s only other public comments came Saturday in a statement released by his publicist.
“I am truly sorry,” Mr. Kraft said. “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. 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.”
Mr. Kraft’s wife, Myra, died in 2011.
Regardless of the outcome of the legal case, Mr. Kraft could still be penalized by N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has broad authority to fine or suspend owners, players, and league and team executives for conduct deemed detrimental to the league.
Mr. Goodell said here on Tuesday night that his decision on whether to discipline Mr. Kraft would not be contingent on the outcome of the legal case.
“The personal conduct policy applies to everybody,” Mr. Goodell said, adding: “And it will be applied to everybody. But it will be done after we get all the facts.”
Though Mr. Kraft is widely admired in ownership circles, his colleagues have been reluctant to speak publicly about his case. Steve Tisch, the co-owner of the Giants, was rare owner to talk on the record about him.
“I think what Robert said yesterday very publicly, I think it came from his heart,” Mr. Tisch told reporters on Sunday. “I think he was really addressing his family, his team, his players, his friends and Patriots fans. And, I think, in some ways, 31 other team owners. It’s probably very, very tough for him to make those statements.”B:
