Mark Strong apologized to his wife and family for his role in the prostitution case.

PORTLAND, Maine — An insurance agent who helped run a prostitution operation out of his mistress’s Zumba studio and watched secretly videotaped sex acts was ordered Thursday to spend 20 days in jail.

Before being sentenced, Mark Strong apologized for the pain he has caused his family, and his wife broke down in sobs while pleading for leniency.

‘‘I do apologize for each of my selfish actions and the harm that I have caused many,’’ Strong said, his voice cracking.

Prosecutors said Strong was involved in every facet of the Kennebunk operation with fitness instructor Alexis Wright. In court, Strong said he should have owned up to his mistakes right away.
