(NECN/AP) - Police have released the first round of names of people they say paid for sex with a Zumba fitness instructor charged with running a prostitution operation out of her studio in Maine.
   
Justice Thomas Warren on Monday denied a motion seeking to block disclosure of the names of people accused of being johns at the studio in the seaside community Kennebunk.
   
An attorney for two of the people had filed a complaint asking the names be kept private and criminal charges not be pursued. But attorney Stephen Schwartz says an appeal is unlikely.
   
Kennebunk police Monday evening released the names of 21 people who have been issued summonses to appear in court.
   
The Kennebunk, Maine Police Department has released the following names in the Zumba prostitution case: Gary Bahlkow, Jens Bergen, Norman Crepeau, Joseph Cuetara, Kenneth Fairbanks, Donald Hill, Monie Hobbs, David Kline, Robert Labonte, Dale Madore, Paul Main, Harry McMann, Kevin Pagliccia, Claude Palmer, Philip Parker, Colin Powers, Clinton Ray, James Soule, John Verreault, James White, and Peter Wormell.

These individuals are charged with engaging in prostitution based on an ongoing investigation. They are due to appear in Biddeford District Court on December 5 at 1 p.m.
