New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his legal team scored a victory Monday.

A judge has suppressed video evidence in his solicitation of prostitution case, which is not a good development for the state.

What's the next step in this case?

ESPN's TJ Quinn tweeted Monday we can "Expect Kraft's attorneys to file a motion to dismiss based on lack of evidence, probably tomorrow. The state can either dismiss charges, appeal the decision or take it to court. But so far they haven't cited any evidence other than the video surveillance."

The fight to use video evidence of Kraft from inside the Orchids of Asia Day Spa (located in Jupiter, Fla.) has been one of the key battles in this case. Not being able to use this evidence obviously will make the state's job much more difficult.

Kraft was charged in February with two separate counts of soliciting prostitution. He plead not guilty.
