A lawyer who's seen the list says it includes the names of more than 150 men, some of them prominent. But the names released Friday didn't include anyone who appeared to be especially prominent.

The names were posted Friday on the Kennebunk Police Blotter along with the names of other people arrested for unrelated reasons this past week. So far, police have released the names of 54 men accused of patronizing Wright.

Wright has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts including prostitution, invasion of privacy and tax-related counts. She is accused of selling sex in her fitness studio and a nearby office, and of secretly videotaping some of the encounters. Her accused business partner also has pleaded not guilty.
