An insurance agent accused of helping a Zumba instructor use her fitness studio as a front for prostitution was convicted Wednesday in a case that set off a guessing game in a small Maine town over who was on her customer list. Mark Strong Sr. controlled, supervised, and managed the prostitution business and watched the sex acts live via Skype from his office 100 miles away, prosecutors contend. The married businessman acknowledged having an affair with dance instructor Alexis Wright and helping her open the Kennebunk studio but contended he did not profit from her prostitution.
