ALFRED, Maine (AP) — The judge in the trial of a Maine man accused of promoting prostitution with a Zumba fitness instructor in Kennebunk is giving jurors a few hours off while she and attorneys address several motions.
Justice Nancy Mills must decide whether the defendant's rights trump a state law that bars investigators' personnel files from being released. The judge must rule on how much porn jurors will see. And the defense has a motion pending to toss remaining charges.
Those issues were to be discussed Tuesday morning in the trial of Mark Strong Sr.
The insurance executive faces 13 counts related to promotion of prostitution. Both he and Zumba instructor Alexis Wright have pleaded not guilty. Wright will be tried at a later date.
