21 names released in Zumba sex case

| No Comments

Police released the names of 21 men who allegedly paid for sex from a Zumba instructor in a seaside community in Maine Monday morning.

Alexis Wright, a 29-year-old Zumba instructor in Kennebunk, Maine, has been accused of accepting payment from men for sex and then videotaping the events, reported CNN News Sunday. Wright allegedly received help from her business partner Mark Strong, a 57-year-old insurance salesman and private investigator.

The Kennebunk Police Department said in a statement Friday that they were waiting to release the names of the men involved, reported CNN News. Monday morning the names were released after Superior Court Justice Thomas Warren denied a motion by an attorney representing two of the accused people seeking to block disclosure of the names, reported the Huffington Post.

Wright and Strong both pleaded not guilty this month to prostitution-related charges, reported the Huffington Post. Wright is charged with 106 counts and Strong with 59 counts. Police say over 150 people are suspected of soliciting sex from the Zumba instructor.
