A trial judge dismissed 46 invasion of privacy counts against Mark Strong Sr., but he still faces 13 counts dealing with promotion of prostitution.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Maine's highest court is preparing to weigh in on whether prostitution johns who were recorded without their knowledge have a right to privacy.

A trial judge dismissed 46 invasion of privacy counts against Mark Strong Sr., who's accused of viewing sex videos featuring men who were unaware that they were being recorded with a woman who's accused of using her Zumba studio as a front for prostitution.

Prosecutors are seeking to reinstate the charges.

Arguments were scheduled for Wednesday in Portland.

Strong also faces 13 other counts that deal with promotion of prostitution. He and dance instructor Alexis Wright have both pleaded not guilty.
