Kraft was captured on security cameras allegedly soliciting prostitution at the facility on January 19, with the alleged videotaped sex offences taking place in the second of those visits the morning of the following day.
As a result, Kraft was charged with two misdemeanor counts of first-degree solicitation.
Kraft is now expected to be arrested via a "low level" warrant and a court date has been set for April 24, where his charges will be read and his plea entered.
If found guilty, Kraft will face a custodial jail sentence of up to one year, with a $5,000 fine, up to 100 hours of community service and compulsory attendance of human trafficking awareness sessions.
A spokesman for Kraft issued a statement on Friday saying that they "categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity."
