Alleged sex scandal partner says he's being framed

KENNEBUNK, Maine

57-year-old Mark Strong is accused of helping 29-year-old Alexis Wright sell sex and video tape it in her Kennebunkport, Maine Zumba studio.

But Strong says he helped Wright set up a legitimate business. He says he's being targeted because he's a part time private eye, who's been investigating the Kennebunkport Police Department. His attorney says he hasn't seen any evidence against Strong, noting, "From what he says, he's a good guy caught up in a bad situation."

Authorities continue to release the names of Wright's roughly 100 alleged clients. Wednesday's list included a former mayor of South Portland, Maine. 21 men have received summonses so far.
