"Zumba prostitution scandal" keeps Kennebunk, Maine waiting for names amid appeal
Police declined Friday to release any names because of a court challenge by a lawyer for two of the suspected customers of Alexis Wright, one of two people accused of using her Zumba classes as a front for a sex-for-sale ring.
The appeal to the Maine Supreme Court is aimed at keeping the names confidential. It asks for an expedited hearing that won't happen until Monday at the earliest.
Wright, of Wells, has pleaded not guilty to prostitution, invasion of privacy and other charges for allegedly accepting money for sex and secretly videotaping her encounters. Her business partner also pleaded not guilty.
A lawyer who has seen the list of alleged johns says it contains more than 150 names.
