According to the Boston Herald, none of the names released Friday were people who resided in the Maine coastal town, and only five lived in the same county. Two of the accused were from New Hampshire, four were from Scarborough, Maine, and two from Saco, Maine, the Herald reported.

Police said the ages of the accused clients ranged from 29 to 66.

Wright, 29, pleaded not guilty earlier this month to 106 counts of prostitution and other charges after being accused of running a brothel in her dance studio and in an office across the street, as well as secretly videotaping many of her encounters without her clients' knowledge. Her alleged business partner, Mark Strong Sr., also pleaded not guilty to 59 counts.

The first 21 names of alleged clients were released on Oct. 16, and included a former mayor and the local high school ice hockey coach.
