Witness lists for the defense and prosecution teams in the Kennebunk prostitution case include residents of Knox County.

For the defense team — seven of 12 potential witnesses are from the area — including Mark Strong's brother James, an attorney from Thomaston.

The defense list names the following people that could be called on to testify:

Anthony DeWolfe of Owls Head.

Rev. Wayne Sawyer of St. George.

Michael MacDonald of Thomaston.

William Smith of Warren.

William Stuart of St. George.

Keith Shortall of Thomaston.

The single local witness for the prosecution is Carl Taylor of Thomaston.

The defense's list was submitted Jan. 22 and states that Strong reserves the right and opportunity to add witnesses with reasonable notice.

On Feb. 15, the Maine Supreme Court upheld Justice Nancy Mills' Jan. 22 decision to dismiss 46 counts of invasion of privacy against Mark W. Strong Sr. of Thomaston.

Thirteen counts of promotion of prostitution still stand.

Last fall Strong was indicted on 59 counts of promotion of prostitution, invasion of privacy, and conspiracy. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

According to previously published reports, Justice Nancy Mills said she will not restart the jury selection process and that remaining members of the jury pool will remain on call through March 1.
