ALFRED, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - The defense once again asked the judge to throw out the charges against Mark Strong.
Strong is one of the two main defendants in the Kennebunk Zumba prostitution case. He is on trial for 12 promotion of prostitution charges and 1 conspiracy charge.
The defense has complained numerous times before and during the trial that the state was not sharing all of it's evidence with the defense as required. Tuesday Strong's attorneys asked the judge to dismiss the charges against Strong, claiming repeated violations of the discovery rule.
"That's the only thing that has been reliable about the discovery. It has consistently and reliably not done properly. Every day, and it seems with every witness, we are getting notice that things have not been provided", said Tina Nadeau, one of Strong's attorneys.
The judge denied the motion to dismiss the charges. She said she would take other steps to ensure Mark Strong gets a fair trial. All of this was handled without jurors in the courtroom. They heard very little testimony today. They were sent home early so the judge and attorneys could go over what sexually explicit photos and videos will be admitted during the trial.
