Zumba "Johns" List Rocks Tiny Town
Authorities release names of men accused of paying alleged Zumba instructor prostitute for sex.
A judge has reversed his decision about a Maine prostitution case, ruling that addresses and other identifying information can now be released for men charged with paying for sex with a Zumba instructor in Kennebunk, Maine.
21 people are accused of hiring Alexis Wright as a prostitute.
Wright continued to keep a low profile Tuesday; her home in Wells, Maine appeared deserted.
Those charged may not be talking much, but the town famous for the Bush estate on Walker's Point, is buzzing about the list.
“Everybody wants to know. It’s a curiosity thing I guess,” said Kennebunk resident Carl Durocher.
There have been cases of mistaken identity; a former law enforcement official has a name that appears on the list.
“I knew it wasn’t me and then all of a sudden the phone started coming and the phone was ringing off the hook,” said Paul Main, a retired sheriff’s deputy.
After a judge reversed his order, Kennebunk police will now provide more detail, including middle initials, addresses, and ages so there won’t be any more mistakes.
Police say Wright videotaped sex sessions and kept records.
An attorney involved in the case says there are more than 100 names involved.
New names will not be released until a week from Friday.
