Woman Accused of Running Prostitution Business Out of Zumba Dance Studio

Updated: Thursday, October 11 2012, 08:14 PM CDT
(AP) A lawyer for two alleged clients of a Maine woman accused of running a prostitution business out of her Zumba dance studio in Kennebunkport has filed a motion to block the release of names of the men suspected as her clients.

Stephen Schwartz told The Associated Press he filed the motion in court Thursday, a day before police were expected to release the first batch of names.

Alexis Wright, 29, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 106 counts of prostitution, violation of privacy, tax evasion and other charges for allegedly providing sex for money at her fitness studio and a nearby office. The man police say was her business partner, 57-year-old Mark Strong Sr., pleaded not guilty to 59 counts of promotion of prostitution and violation of privacy.

Schwartz tells the AP that the release of the names has the potential to ruin people's reputations, families and businesses and to prejudice any potential jury.
