Attorneys for more than 100 alleged “Johns” of a prostitution ring in a small town in Maine want the names of their clients to not be released to the public.
Alexis Wright has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts of prostitution, violation of privacy, tax evasion and other charges for allegedly running a prostitution ring in Kennebunk, Maine. Wright denies providing sex for money at her Zumba fitness studio.
ABC News reports that attorneys representing the alleged clients have asked the judge in the case to protect the names, because releasing them could destroy reputations.
Attorney Daniel Lilley told ABC that the list is a who's who of the rich and powerful in the town.
"I'm told that there are police officers and firemen and accountants and TV personalities and lawyers," Lilley said, according to ABC. "It runs the gamut of Americana, I guess."
