PORTLAND, Maine

Zumba defendant seeks two weeks in jail

Continue reading below

Lawyers for a Maine man convicted in a prostitution scandal are asking the judge to impose a sentence of no more than two weeks in jail, the same penalty he previously rejected under a proposed plea deal. Mark Strong’s defense team has asked Justice Nancy Mills to invalidate 12 of the 13 guilty verdicts. They said Wednesday that if the verdicts stand, the maximum sentence should be no greater than the plea deal. But with the plea deal rejected, prosecutors have asked the judge to impose just under a year of jail time. The 57-year-old insurance agent was convicted on 12 counts of promotion of prostitution.
