According to investigators, massage parlors were being used as fronts for a human trafficking ring.
The ring worked by enticing women in China with promises of great jobs in the United States to come and work, but were then forced to work as sex workers at the spa and weren’t allowed to leave.
Sheriff Snyder has also confirmed that thee is video evidence of all men being charged, including Mr. Kraft.
“I think it’s very safe to say without any hyperbole that this is the tip of the iceberg,” Snyder said.
Kraft is a frequent visitor to Mar-a-Lago and a friend of President Donald Trump. He was even seen in the Palm Beach area as recently as this past weekend when he attended a fundraiser and The Breakers resort.
