BOSTON ( -- As of now, it seems there's a real chance of Robert Kraft's soliciting prostitution case going to trial.

According to USA Today, Kraft will not accept a pre-trial diversion program by Friday's deadline.

If accepted, Kraft and others would have had to admit they would have been found guilty if the case went to trial. In addition, they would have had to take a mandatory prostitution impact course, undergo STD screening, do community service and pay a fine. Lastly, "the Defendant must provide a truthful, sworn statement to the State regarding his knowledge of the illicit activity."

Kraft's team and Florida state attorney Dave Aronberg's office have reportedly been talking since Kraft was charged in February on a potential deal.

The New England Patriots owner pleaded not guilty to soliciting prostitution and has requested a speedy jury trial.
