Maine Zumba Trial Jury Watching Explicit Videos
02/28/2013 10:00 AM ET  

The jury in the trial of a Maine man accused of helping a Zumba instructor engage in prostitution is watching sexually explicit videos as part of the high-profile trial.

ALFRED, Maine (AP) _ Jurors began viewing the videos at about 9:00 AM Thursday, a day after they saw more than two dozen explicit photos and a video that showed the fitness instructor performing a striptease inside her studio. But the court schedule depends on the severity of a winter storm Wednesday night.

Mark Strong Sr. faces 13 counts related to promotion of prostitution. Prosecutors said he made screen-grab snapshots from live Skype sessions he had with Alexis Wright while she engaged in sex for money.

Both have pleaded not guilty. Wright will be tried later.
