Former pro golfer and Jessica Korda’s boyfriend, Johnny DelPrete, arrested in prostitution sting

Johnny DelPrete, a former pro golfer and long-time boyfriend of LPGA star Jessica Korda, was arrested Friday as part of a sweeping prostitution and human-trafficking probe in Florida.

According to Martin County Sheriff police records obtained by Golfweek, DelPrete was arrested early Friday morningĀ on a charge of soliciting prostitution. DelPrete posted a $2,500 bond and was released the same day.

The 29-year-old has been working on the PGA Tour as a rep for Titleist's Scotty Cameron putter brand. He played in eight Tour events between the 2012 and 2014 seasons. He has also worked in real estate.

Golfweek reached out to Korda for comment, and she had not responded when they published. It is unclear if they're still dating.

DelPrete's arrest comes as part of a sprawling probe throughout Florida, arresting several dozen individuals already in connection with soliciting prostitution from massage parlors and other front businesses whose supposed employees are victims of human trafficking.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was among 35 men whose names and arrests were made public on Friday. Kraft was charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution in a massage parlor in Jupiter, Fla. Reporting indicates many more names will be made public.

Relating to DelPrete, it's unclear the next procedural date in his case.
