KENNEBUNK, Maine - A Maine tourist town is on edge as residents wait to see which friends and neighbors are named as clients of a fitness instructor who pleaded not guilty to running a prostitution business out of her Zumba studio.

Twenty-nine-year-old Alexis Wright pleaded not guilty Tuesday to more than 100 counts connected to her alleged operation in Kennebunk.

Police say they found video footage of Wright having sex with men who were unaware they were being filmed, along with meticulous records suggesting the sex acts could have generated $150,000.

Police say they've begun issuing summonses to Wright's alleged customers. The superintendent of schools has asked teachers to be on the lookout for students who have relatives on the list of names and may be teased or have trouble coping.
