Maine Supreme Court OKs Release of Prostitute's 'John' List

October 15, 2012  | 

The Maine Supreme Court on Monday allowed a Maine police department to publicly release the names of more than 150 clients of a fitness instructor now accused of running a prostitution business out of her Kennebunk studio.

The Kennebunk Police Department had declined to release the names of suspected johns on Friday, after two clients on the list filed an appeal seeking an expedited hearing Monday, reports CBS News.

Superior Court Justice Thomas Warren denied that request, and 21 of the clients were charged, reports the Portland Press Herald.

Alexis Wright, a 29-year-old Zumba instructor, has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts of prostitution, invasion of privacy, and other charges. Her business partner, Mark Strong, also has pleaded not guilty to 59 misdemeanor counts.

Police say Wright allegedly earned more than $150,000 from her prostitution business and collected public assistance at the time, reports the Press Herald.

You got to wonder how many "names" will be erased before that list is released, if ever. Considering the city and the noted families residing there it should be interesting. Blues, stay safe.

She was screwing her clients and the American citizen too. Public Assistance!

Sounds like a classic public sector / private sector partnership where everybody got screwed and no one complained.

The only difference between prostitutes and the many greedy, dick teasing bitches in this country (who use guys for their money) is that prostitutes are usually upfront about their intentions and actually "put out".
