dress," my offer clues to her plans. Seems like a strong clue. We're going to start with our correspondent going face-to-oung woman in the center of a prostitution scandal. Alexis wright runs a zumba studio, that police say was doubling as a brothel. She has stayed mum since the scandal broke. But abc's john schriffen tracks her down. Reporter: Is anybody home? For someone who lives such a public life on the internet, it wasn't easy tracking down the former zumba instructor at the center of a controversy, that has gripped a small town. Did you run a prostitution ring? I will pick up the phone and call the police. Reporter: At her home in rural maine, alexis wright had no comment after being arrested and charged earlier this week, for over 100 counts of prostitution and invasion of privacy. Allegedly running a sex-for-hire business out of her dance studio in kennebunk, maine. Her alleged business partner? 57-year-old mark strong. His attorney says there is a list of more than 100 johns that could be made public. But claims his client had nothing to do with it. After all, there's police officers and firemen, accountants and tv personalities and lawyers. Reporter: The anticipation has now consumed this picturesque new england town. Do you want to see the list yourself? Absolutely. Reporter: Why is that? Because I'm curious. Just like everybody else in town. Reporter: The judge has said that she won't block the release of the names. But that decision has been appealed to maine supreme court. In the meanti, many are bracing for the fallout. How do you see this story affecting the kids of the community? I think the teenagers are a lot more aware of it. Some of them feel passionately that the names should not come forward. Some of them are worried about the affects on the town. My daughter is in high school and has had people really angrily say to her, it's not right that the papers are going to print this. It's not right what your mom is going to do. Reporter: But she says it's her duty as a journalist. And with her skyrocketing readership, the public is demanding it. John schriffen, abc news, kennebunk, maine.
