Maine Zumba teacher who used studio as prostitution front could get jail time after plea

Prosecutors say they'll recommend a 10-month prison sentence for a Maine Zumba teacher who used her fitness studio as a front for a prostitution operation.

Alexis Wright pleaded guilty Friday to 20 counts including engaging in prostitution, promotion of prostitution and conspiracy.

Wright's plea agreement spares her the prospect of a high-profile trial featuring sex videos, exhibitionism and pornography, and more than a thousand texts and emails detailing the operation.

The 30-year-old Wright was accused of conspiring with insurance agent Mark Strong Sr. to run a prostitution business out of her studio in the quiet seaside town of Kennebunk. She was also accused of using a hidden camera to record sex acts without her clients' knowledge.

Strong was convicted of 13 counts and sentenced to 20 days in jail.
