Florida police have officially charged Patriots owner, Robert Kraft, with first-degree solicitation of a prostitute.

"This charge is a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail, a mandatory $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service, and a class on the dangers of prostitution and human trafficking," Dave Aronberg, Florida state attorney for Palm Beach County, said in a press conference.

First, we get the latest on the charges and on how the NFL is responding. Then, we turn to bigger questions about sex trafficking in this country, how prevalent it is, and what more we could be doing to help those who get trapped by it.
