Mark Strong Sr. has been sentenced to 20 days in jail.  Strong has been convicted of promoting prostitution and conspiring to run a prostitution business with Alexis Wright at her Zumba studio in Kennebunk.

The court had recessed while the prosecution and defense decided when Strong should begin serving his sentence.

Earlier in the court room where Mark Strong Jr. made an emotional statement: “Mostly I’d like to apologize to my wife and my sons and my entire family for causing so much harm.  “The next right thing for me to do is to ask for the help I need for myself, my spiritual growth, to become the person that I want to be.”

Strong's wife then broke down in tears and begged Justice Nancy Mills for leniency.  She pleaded to Mills to “go easy on my husband. He clearly has learned from this experience.”

Zumba sex queen Alexis Wright's trial will begin in May.
