Just three of the 21 men summoned to appear in Biddeford District Court today are expected to show up - while lawyers for the other 18 men, each facing one count of engaging a prostitute, have already filed not guilty pleas for their clients.

BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) _ The first of dozens of men charged with paying for sex with a woman who allegedly used her Zumba dance studio in Kennebunk as a front for prostitution are scheduled to appear in court.

Just three of the 21 men summoned to appear in Biddeford District Court on Wednesday are expected to show up.

The Portland Press Herald  reports that lawyers for 18 other men facing one count each of engaging a prostitute have already filed not guilty pleas for their clients.

A total of 62 men have been charged in the case, which has drawn international attention.

Twenty-nine-year-old Alexis Wright of Wells has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts including prostitution, invasion of privacy and tax evasion. Her alleged business partner also has pleaded not guilty.
