KENNEBUNK, Maine — Residents are awaiting the next release of names of accused clients of a woman who police say used her Zumba dance studio as a front for prostitution in the seaside town of Kennebunk, Maine.The town of 10,000 made international headlines when dance instructor Alexis Wright was charged this month with engaging in prostitution. Police said she videotaped many of the encounters without her clients' knowledge and kept meticulous records suggesting the sex acts generated $150,000 over 18 months.

Wright and her business partner have pleaded not guilty.

The scandal is unfolding in slow motion, with the first 21 johns' names released two weeks ago and more being released Friday. The names released so far include a former mayor and the local high school ice hockey coach.
