KENNEBUNK, Maine — A Maine judge won't block the release of names of men who were allegedly giving business to a fitness instructor charged with running a prostitution operation out of her Zumba fitness studio in the seaside town of Kennebunk.Alexis Wright has pleaded not guilty to prostitution, invasion of privacy and other charges for allegedly accepting money for sex and secretly videotaping her encounters. Her business partner has pleaded not guilty to 59 misdemeanor charges for his alleged role.

Kennebunk police have been issuing summons to Wright's johns and say the names will be released in bi-weekly police activity reports beginning Friday.

A lawyer for two of the suspected clients tried to stop the release of the list but a state judge rejected the motion late Thursday. The order was filed Friday.
