ALFRED, Maine (AP) - Emails and text messages show the Maine fitness instructor who ran a prostitution operation out of her Zumba studio had as many as five clients a day and wanted her co-conspirator monitoring the trysts.
The messages between Alexis Wright and Mark Strong Sr. were obtained Tuesday through a records request by the Portland Press Herald.
The communications included spreadsheets Wright used to keep track of her clients that included names, dates, times, sex acts and payments.
Wright pleaded guilty last month to 20 counts including prostitution for using her Kennebunk studio as a front for prostitution. Strong was convicted of 13 counts.
In one series of texts, Wright says she's prepared to see a client but was waiting for Strong to let her know he was watching online.
