FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Two of Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s defense attorneys are being accused of lying by prosecutors in his solicitation of prostitution case.

The Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office filed a motion Tuesday asking that attorneys Alex Spiro and William Burck be held in contempt.

Prosecutors say Spiro falsely accused Jupiter police officer Scott Kimbark in court last week of telling other officers he would lie to justify the traffic stop of another Orchids of Asia Day Spa customer. Officers stopped customers after alleged traffic violations to learn their identities so they could be charged later.

Prosecutors say recordings of Kimbark show he never said anything like that. Prosecutors say Burck abetted Spiro.

In a phone interview, Burck denied the allegations. He said prosecutors are “desperate.”

Kraft pleaded not guilty.
