Unfortunate Agent Tricks - An Update

Oy, where to begin? One supposes that the beginning would be a good place:

"[Insurance agent] Mark String Sr pleaded not guilty to 59 counts of promotion of prostitution"

Generally speaking, this would not be auspicious. And, of course, it wasn't.

Now fast-forward a few months, and we learn about the latest "doings" in The Pine Tree State:

"The defense and the judge aren't happy with delays in the trial of the business partner in a prostitution scandal ... Prosecutors aren't happy, either, after the judge dismissed nearly four dozen charges."

And the jurors - sequestered for days on end - aren't exactly happy campers, either. Proceedings screeched to a halt late last week when Justice Nancy Mills "dismissed 46 of 59 counts" against Mr Strong. The latter, by the way, vehemently denies any untoward sexual contact between himself and Ms Zumba (or Zoomba - I've heard it both ways).

We'll continue to stay on top of the story as best we can.
