A Florida judge granted a motion by Robert Kraft's defense team to suppress the use of video evidence in the solicitation of prostitution case against the New England Patriots owner, according to Terry Spencer of the Associated Press.

The judge ruled Monday that prosecutors cannot use video footage from the Orchids of Asia Spa because it was obtained illegally, ESPN's Adam Schefter added. Authorities allege that the spa was tied to a human trafficking ring, necessitating the installation of surveillance cameras.

Judge Leonard Hanser said detectives did not do enough to protect the privacy of customers who didn't commit any crimes, according to Spencer.

This violin teacher touched his young students’ breasts. Will his acquittal make it OK for other teachers to do the same?.
Former students of retired Chatham violin teacher Claude Trachy, still stunned a trial judge believed his evidence that he measured their breasts so they’d be better musicians, are hopeful the Court of Appeal will overturn his acquittal on several sexual offences. On Tuesday, the province’s highest court heard arguments in a Crown appeal of Trachy’s acquittal last year following a two-week trial in Chatham where 21 women testified about his actions during their violin and viola lessons decades ago. The court reserved its decision following Tuesday’s hearing and will return with a ruling at a later date.
