KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) — Police on Monday 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.

Justice Thomas Warren earlier 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.
