With insurance agent convicted, focus of Maine prostitution case turns to Zumba instructor

The focus of a prostitution scandal in Maine is turning to a Zumba fitness instructor now that an insurance agent accused of being her business partner has been convicted.

Evidence presented during Mark Strong's trial indicated Alexis Wright's sexual trysts were captured by hidden video camera in a sophisticated operation featuring meticulous ledgers and the use of license plate numbers to identify clients. Strong monitored the sex acts from his office 100 miles away.

Prosecutors say they'll meet with Wright's lawyer next week for a settlement conference.

Wright is accused of prostitution. She has pleaded not guilty and will stand trial in May if there's no plea deal.

Strong was convicted Wednesday of promoting prostitution. He'll be sentenced March 19.

His lawyer argued he never profited from the operation.
