Boston Herald: Your Zumba Hooker Headquarters

Margery Eagan has the local dailies’ Maine event in her Boston Herald column today:

zumba122912Potential jurors in Zumba case face probing questions

A truth too naked

“Do you have a domination fetish?”

“Have you dealt with this by hiring a prostitute?”

“Was this a wise investment for you, sir?”

Sadly for dozens of presumably upstanding Maine residents called for the jury pool in the so-called “Zumba” prostitution trial, these are the kind of sexual questions they may be asked.

Worse: A judge’s effort to keep the questioning private has been overturned by the state’s highest court.

 

Bad news for the good townspeople of Kennebunk, excellent news for the Herald.

No news, however, for the Boston Globe, which didn’t mention the trial in today’s edition.

The broadsheet did post this Associated Press piece on the Globe website around 3:30 this morning.

Better late than never, yeah?

  1. [...] Read the rest at It’s Good to Live in a Two-Daily Town. [...]

  2. Well, if they’re going to expose the sexual histories of the accused, shouldn’t the jury – and judge – be held to the same standard?
