The talk of the town recently concerns the 120+ “johns” and the alleged prostitute who reportedly made over $150,000 during an 18 month for her services. The scandal has rocked the community and the first repercussions are already shaking out. The “johns” have been exposed and as a result, some have already resigned from jobs while others undoubtedly are experiencing a great deal of personal turmoil. No doubt that the families caught up in the scandal will suffer a great deal of humiliation and grief as a result of the charges that came to light.
Of course, this case is far from over as the Kennebunk PD plans on releasing names over the course of the next few months as additional “johns” are served with criminal summonses. As the public is aware, there are numerous alleged videos depicting sexual acts between the alleged prostitute and the “johns” as well as meticulously detailed notes taken by the Defendant.
Therefore, it begs the question: “what, if any, defense is available to the “johns” in this case”? Well, there are a number of major evidentiary issues that will make admissibility of a great deal of this evidence difficult if not impossible. What will be difficult to overcome is the media frenzy over this case and the HUGE amount of information and misinformation available to the public. A BIG unanswered question is whether any of the “johns” can get a fair trial in York County or in southern Maine in general.
