KENNEBUNK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Kennebunk Police Department is holding off releasing the alleged client names of a woman accused of prostitution.
On Thursday, an attorney for two alleged clients of a woman accused of running a prostitution business out of her Zumba dance studio in Kennebunk filed a motion to block the release of names of the men suspected as her clients.
The judge denied the motion Friday morning and the attorney has since appealed to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. The Kennebunk Police Department is waiting for a ruling from that court.
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.
