KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) — Residents of a Maine town are going to have to wait at least a few more days before learning if friends and neighbors have been accused of calling on a Zumba instructor charged with being a prostitute.

Kennebunk police declined Friday to release any names because of a court challenge by a lawyer for two of the suspected clients.

The state Supreme Court appeal is aimed at keeping the names confidential. It asks for an expedited hearing that won’t happen until Monday at the earliest.

Alexis Wright, of Wells, 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 also pleaded not guilty.

A lawyer who has seen the list of johns says it contains more than 150 names.
