Florida prosecutors said in court papers Wednesday that they will release surveillance videos of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and other men at a day spa, where they are accused of paying for sex.

The Boston Globe reported Wednesday that the office of Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg said in court papers that it is required by law to make the video public.

An attorney for Lei Wang, who is accused of managing the Orchids of Asia Spa in Jupiter, Fla., has petitioned a judge to prevent the videos from being made public while Wang's case is pending, according to the Globe. 

A hearing on that request is reportedly scheduled for May 17, but prosecutors say they can't wait that long to make the videos public.

"[Prosecutors] cannot delay the release of records to allow a person to raise a constitutional challenge to the release of the documents. The Public Records Act does not allow a custodian to delay the production of records to allow the resolution of a constitutional challenge to the release of the documents," prosecutors wrote in court papers, the Globe reported.

A federal judge later Wednesday agreed to at least temporarily block the release of video in the Kraft case, Boston ABC affiliate WCVB reported.

Kraft was charged earlier this year with soliciting prostitution. He has since pleaded not guilty and maintained his innocence.

Lawyers for Kraft and the other men in the case have requested that the evidence, including videos, be kept private.
