Kennebunk is an upscale town in the state of Maine.  The last thing the residents of Kennebunk expected to hear was that their local Zumba studio was being used as a brothel. Allegedly, the fitness instructor, Alexis Wright, and her business partner, Mark Strong, were using the studio to run a prostitution business.

Wright's and Strong's Charges

Wright has been charged with "106 counts of prostitution, violation of privacy, tax evasion" among other charges.  Strong has been charged with "59 counts of promotion of prostitution and violation of privacy."  Both Wright and Strong have pleaded not guilty to all these charges.

As if news of this isn’t bad enough, the police will soon release the names of the individuals who used Wright's alleged services.  Many families will be torn apart once this list comes out.
