12/03/2012 10:25 AM ET  

They are among dozens of men charged with engaging a prostitute in connection with an alleged operation at a Zumba dance studio in kennebunk.

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

The names of the 21 men scheduled to face a charge of engaging a prostitute on Wednesday were released in mid-October. Since then police have released dozens of other names bringing the total to 58.

The Portland Press Herald reports that four other men have pleaded guilty before police could issue a criminal complaint, avoiding being named in the police's bi-weekly blotter that has drawn national attention.

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.
