0

A lawyer for Mark Strong Sr. confirmed Wednesday that a conference with prosecutors is scheduled for Friday, where a settlement may be discussed.

The 57-year-old Strong is scheduled to go on trial Tuesday in York County Superior Court on 59 misdemeanor charges of conspiring with Zumba instructor Alexis Wright to run a prostitution business.

Strong’s attorney, Daniel Lilley, told The Portland Press Herald his client wants a deal in which he gets a small fine but avoids jail.

Lilley said he’s removing himself from the case because Strong can no longer afford to pay him.
