Updated 2 years ago

A judge has ordered separate trials for the two defendants in the alleged Zumba prostitution case in Kennebunk, Maine. The lawyer for Mark Strong said Tuesday that the judge put Strong’s case on the January trial list, while defendant Alexis Wright will be tried at a later date. Wright, of Wells, has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts including prostitution and invasion of privacy. Strong, of Thomaston, has pleaded not guilty to 59 misdemeanor counts. Strong’s lawyer, Dan Lilley, said he’s looking forward to having the evidence scrutinized by a jury. Also Tuesday, the website for the Portsmouth Herald reported that four men have pleaded guilty to engaging a prostitute. That brings the total number of men charged with engaging a prostitute to 58.
