KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) — The anticipation is building for residents of a seaside community in Maine waiting to find out the names of those accused of giving business to a Zumba instructor charged with running a prostitution operation out of her fitness studio.

Legal wrangling delayed the expected release of names of friends and neighbors until at least next week.

The police department yesterday declined to release any of the more than 150 names of suspected clients.

Kennebunk residents say they've heard that the list of could include lawyers, law enforcement officers and some well-known people.

Twenty-nine-year-old fitness instructor Alexis Wright has pleaded not guilty to various charges.

A lawyer for two men on the list filed an appeal against the release of the information and asked the state Supreme Court for an expedited hearing, but the earliest that can happen is Monday.
