Jury Selection in Prostitution Trial Put on Hold 

The Maine Supreme Court put jury selection in a high-profile prostitution trial on hold on Thursday.It was in response to a challenge by Maine Today Media to open jury selection to the public, instead of doing it behind closed doors.Mark Strong, 57, of Thomaston is charged with nearly sixty misdemeanors, including conspiring with a dance instructor to use her studio in Kennebunk as a front for prostitution. The Supreme Court ruled late Thursday that jury selection can resume but must be open to the public from here on out.
