An attorney for The Portland Press Herald says Justice Thomas Warren agreed Tuesday that the addresses and ages of the suspected johns can be made public, along with their names. Warren on Monday allowed the release of the names but no other identifying information.

Police in the small town of Kennebunk are expected re-issue a list of 21 names of men who have been issued summons for allegedly paying Wright for sex in her Zumba studio and an office she rented nearby.

Police said more than 150 people are suspected of being clients and many of them were videotaped without their knowledge.
