*CORRECTION: The Associated Press reported erroneously the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office was being sued. The lawsuit is against the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office, not the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
WEST PALM BEACH ( CBSMiami/AP) – A man who was secretly recorded getting a massage at a Jupiter spa under investigation for human trafficking has filed a lawsuit claiming his constitutional rights were violated.
The federal lawsuit filed by the man, identified as “John Doe,” claims police were “spying” on him while he was in a “state of undress” during a massage at Jupiter’s Orchids of Asia Day Spa.
The man isn’t among those charged with solicitation of prostitution in connection with the case. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has pleaded not guilty to two counts of solicitation.
The lawsuit says the man “did not engage in any sexual or illegal activity.” The lawsuit asks for an unspecified amount of damages and names Jupiter police and the Palm Beach State Attorney’s Office.
