A published court document read: “The defendant,
Robert Kraft, hereby pleads not guilty to all charges and requests a non-jury trial in the above-styled cause.”
As part of a bust in Jupiter, Florida, Kraft was allegedly involved in two incidents last month at the Orchids of Day Spa.
The charge is a first-degree misdemeanour and is punishable by up to a year in jail, a $5,000 (£3,770) fine and 100 hours of community service.
