Police have released the first round of names of people they say paid for sex with a Zumba fitness instructor charged with running a prostitution operation out of her studio in Maine.

Justice Thomas Warren on Monday denied a motion seeking to block disclosure of the names of people accused of being johns at the studio in the seaside community Kennebunk.

An attorney for two of the people had filed a complaint asking the names be kept private and criminal charges not be pursued. But attorney Stephen Schwartz says an appeal is unlikely.

Kennebunk police Monday evening released the names of 21 people who have been issued summonses to appear in court.

Zumba instructor Alexis Wright has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts of prostitution, invasion of privacy and other charges. Her business partner faces 59 misdemeanor counts.
