The New England Patriots owner's lawyer, Robert Kraft, is firing on law enforcement officials in South Florida.

William Burck, who represents Kraft, made a statement to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Friday night. Kraft faces prostitution solicitation charges in a massage parlor in Jupiter, Florida, but has pleaded not guilty.

"There was no human traffic and the security forces knew it," Burck told Schefter, who posted the quote on his Twitter account. "The video and the stoppage of the traffic was illegal and the police simply do not want to admit it.

"The Attorney General must take the measures that are imposed and ensure that the evidence in this case has been obtained."

Kraft and 24 other accused men were offered the opportunity to have their charges withdrawn when they performed 100 hours of collective work, followed a course on the dangers of prostitution, were tested for sexually transmitted diseases. and were fined, according to the New York Times.

Instead, Kraft is ready to fight the charges.

William Snyder, Sheriff of Martin County, Florida, said he expects Kraft's alleged illegal activity video to be made public soon.

"I think in the end, they will probably be released," Snyder said in an interview with CNBC.
