Lawyers for an insurance agent charged with promoting prostitution resumed their cross-examination Monday of Kennebunk police officer Audra Presby.

ALFRED, Maine (AP) _ The lead investigator is back on the witness stand in the trial of one of the two key figures in a prostitution scandal centered at a Zumba studio in coastal Maine.

Lawyers for an insurance agent charged with promoting prostitution resumed their cross-examination Monday of Kennebunk police officer Audra Presby. The defense contends Presby retaliated against defendant Mark Strong Sr. for investigating unprofessional conduct by Kennebunk officers.

The 57-year-old Strong acknowledged co-signing for Zumba instructor Alexis Wright's studio lease but contends he didn't profit from her activities. She will be tried later.

Videos played for jurors last week indicate Strong discussed operational details with Wright and watched paid-sex from his computer 100 miles away in Thomaston.
