The Robert Kraft prostitution case will continue to play out.

According to the Boston Globe, Kraft has officially rejected a plea offer from Florida prosecutors that would have had him admit he was guilty of soliciting prostitution at a Florida day spa in January. His team believes prosecutors went beyond what is routinely expected in misdemeanor cases.

The report adds Kraft will never admit to his acts being criminal in nature and accept guilt of two counts of soliciting another to commit prosecution.

A spokesman for the Florida prosecutors said Tuesday if Kraft does not accept this deal, they plan on taking it to trail. Kraft's camp reportedly plans on continuing to negotiate a mutually agreeable resolution.

In addition, ESPN's T.J. Quinn adds Kraft filed a motion to suppress the evidence (notably the video evidence), which is in case there’s no deal reached that would automatically seal it.

Kraft is scheduled to appear in court on March 28.
