Defense Attorneys, Who Are Apparently Still on AOL, Say Zumba Prostitution Evidence Would Horrify Jurors


brassiere-modelALFRED, Maine — Defense attorneys in the first of two major trials in the high-profile Kennebunk prostitution case tried to prevent the introduction in court of images allegedly found on Mark Strong Sr.’s computers, concerned that the sex acts depicted would “horrify” jurors and turn them against their client. The judge overseeing the trial suggested the images likely will be allowed, but before the jury has a chance to view them, Superior Court Justice Nancy Mills is expected to take up a defense motion Tuesday to dismiss all remaining charges in the case. Strong, a Thomaston insurance broker and part-time private investigator, faces 12 counts of promotion of prostitution and one count of conspiracy to promote prostitution in connection with the accusation that he helped Kennebunk fitness instructor Alexis Wright run a prostitution business out of her Zumba studio. Wright faces a separate trial scheduled to begin later this spring. (read more at Bangor Daily News)
