A lawyer for two alleged clients of a Maine woman accused of running a
prostitution business out of her Zumba dance studio in Kennebunk and
secretly videotaped the encounters 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 possibly release
the first batch of names.
Schwartz said the release of the names has a great potential to ruin
people's reputations, families and businesses and to prejudice any
"All it does is appeal the most prurient interests of the public," he told the AP.
Townspeople have said they've heard that lawyers, doctors, law
enforcement officials, a television personality and other well-known
people in town are included in a detailed clientele list police found.
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.
The Portland Press Herald first reported the filing of the motion.
