Multiple news outlets are reporting that Patriots owner Robert Kraft has turned down Florida prosecutors' offer to drop charges of soliciting prostitution.

Had Kraft accepted, he would have had to make a sworn statement admitting that he would have been found guilty at trial. He also would have had to perform community service, pay a fine and fulfill an education requirement.

But what should the consequences be for sex buyers? Can they be reformed by educational programs?
