KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) — Maine police have released another round of names of alleged clients of a woman who authorities say used her Zumba dance studio in Kennebunk as a front for prostitution.

None of the 18 men whose names were released Friday was from the small town of 10,000 residents. They came from Maine and New Hampshire and apparently didn’t include anyone widely known. Twenty-one names released weeks ago included a former mayor and the local high school boy’s ice hockey coach.

The men are charged with engaging a prostitute.

Dance instructor Alexis Wright was charged with engaging in prostitution. Police say she videotaped many encounters without her clients’ knowledge and kept records suggesting the sex acts generated $150,000 over 18 months.

Wright and her business partner have pleaded not guilty.
