Zumba prostitution case goes to high court


PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The Maine Supreme Court today heard oral arguments in the Kennebunk Zumba prostitution case.

The state is appealing the superior court judge's decision that threw out 46 invasion of privacy counts against Thomaston businessman Mark Strong. The decision by the high court could make or break the state's case against Strong.

The matter before the high court revolves around a law passed by the legislature protecting people's privacy and what a reasonable expectation people have towards privacy.

In arguing to get the 46 invasion of privacy charges reinstated against Mark Strong the prosecutor told justices that when people go to places such as bathrooms, tanning booths or other places where they disrobe they should expect privacy.

Truth and Reconciliation Commissioners Sworn In

HERMON, Maine - (NEWS CENTER) About 200 people gathered in Hermon today to watch history in the making as the five members of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission were officially sworn in. They will look into issues surrounding generations of native children being taken from their homes under State and Federal policy - often without tribal permission or their parent's consent - and placed with white families.

The five took a multi-prong pledge which culminated in the provision, "Fully aware of the significance and the potential of truth, healing and change in this historic undertaking, I pledge my very best effort in this process," the Commissioners answered with a resounding, "I do."
