Zumba prostitution case in Maine: More names released
KENNEBUNK, Maine (KABC) -- Police in Kennebunk, Maine, have released another round of names in the Zumba dance studio sex scandal.
Dance instructor Alexis Wright allegedly used the studio as a front for prostitution and videotaped many of the encounters. She has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts of prostitution and other charges. Her business partner, 57-year-old insurance agent and private investigator Mark Strong Sr., has pleaded not guilty to 59 misdemeanor charges.
Earlier this month, police released the names of 21 alleged clients, including a former mayor and a high school hockey coach.
On Friday afternoon, 18 more names were released, but none were town residents. The men came from Maine, New Hampshire and Boston, and apparently didn't include anyone widely known.
The men are charged with engaging a prostitute.
