Defense asks to delay Kennebunk prostitution trial | News
ALFRED, Maine (AP) - The business partner of a Zumba instructor charged with running a prostitution ring from her dance studio in Maine is seeking a delay of his trial.
An attorney for Mark Strong, Sr., 57, of Thomaston, has asked a York County judge to allow him more time to prepare for the trial that is scheduled to begin next week. Defense attorney Daniel Lilley is seeking a new trial date of Feb. 19.
Strong is charged with promotion of prostitution, violation of privacy and conspiring with Alexis Wright, whom authorities say ran a prostitution operation out of her Zumba studio in Kennebunk.
Wright is being tried separately.
