PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) The Latest on New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft's prostitution case (all times local):

7 p.m.

Prosecutors can't release undercover video of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others allegedly receiving sex acts at a Florida massage parlor until a Florida judge rules later this month.

The Palm Beach Post reports Circuit Judge Joseph Marx barred the release of any video from the Orchids of Asia Day Spa before an April 29 hearing where he will hear from all parties.

The Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office had filed a notice Wednesday saying it believes the videos are public records under Florida law and it plans to release pixilated versions.

Kraft's attorneys filed an emergency motion Wednesday to block the release.

Kraft was charged in February with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution for allegedly paying for sex at a Jupiter, Florida, spa.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors intend to release undercover video of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and others allegedly receiving sex acts at a Florida massage parlor, but that won't be soon or perhaps ever.

The Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office filed a notice Wednesday saying it believes the videos are public records under Florida law and it plans to release pixilated versions. Spokesman Mike Edmondson said the release is not imminent, as the office is processing numerous public records in the case.

Kraft's attorneys filed an emergency motion Wednesday to block the release. The judge has not ruled and that decision could be appealed.

Kraft was charged in February with two misdemeanor counts of soliciting prostitution for allegedly paying for sex at a Jupiter, Florida, spa.

He has pleaded not guilty.
