The billionaire also faces a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and attending a class in the dangers of human trafficking — all of which are mandatory. He is due to be arraigned in Palm Beach County Court on April 24.
Kraft is not in custody, but "his attorney has been provided the summons," said Palm Beach County State's Attorney David Aronberg at a press conference.
Kraft through a spokesman has denied the allegations.
The Palm Beach County State's Attorney's Office case against Kraft and about two dozen other men who are also accused of soliciting prostitution stems from a broader police investigation into possible human trafficking of women who were kept as prostitutes by other people.
Kraft is not charged with human trafficking.
But Aronberg said, "These cases aren't about any one defendant or any group of defendants."
"The larger picture, which we must all confront, is the cold reality that many prostitutes in cases like this are victims, often lured into this country with promises of a better life, only to be forced to live and work in a sweatshop or a brothel, subject to force, fraud or coercion," the prosecutor said.
The case against Kraft centers around encounters had had with women with women at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, according to police. Kraft has a home not far from Jupiter.
An affidavit seeking to charge Kraft says that he was driven to the spa Jan. 19 in a white Bentley. For a visit the next day, the affidavit said, Kraft was driven there in a blue Bentley.
The affidavit is based on surveillance video that police had from the spa, which includes footage from cameras investigators hid in rooms in the spa under a "sneak and peek" warrant.
The affidavit notes that after Kraft was seen leaving the spa on Jan. 19, police "conducted a traffic stop on the" Bentley and identified the front seat passenger as Kraft from his Massachusetts driver's license.
Police said Kraft entered the spa that day at about 4:25 p.m. and "paid for services in cash at the front desk to an Asian female."
He then was taken to a massage room where he "undressed, laid on the massage bed completely nude and partially covered himself with a sheet," the affidavit said.
Soon afterward, two women came into the room and "both began massaging Kraft," the affidavit said.
After an encounter with them, Kraft gave both women cash, police said.
