PORTLAND, Maine, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- A judge in Maine has refused to bar police and prosecutors from releasing the names of two men charged with patronizing a prostitute.

Lawyers for the two men are appealing District Court Judge Andre Janelle's ruling. Police in Kennebunk said Friday they will not take any action until the case is resolved, Seacoastonline reported.

"We're erring on the side of being courteous, showing good faith," Lt. Tony Burpee said.

The two men's names allegedly appeared in the records of Alexis Wright, a Zumba instructor who has been charged with prostitution and income tax evasion, reported. Wright pleaded not guilty Tuesday at her arraignment in the Cumberland County courthouse in Portland.

MaineToday said sources familiar with the investigation have said Wright kept detailed records, including a list of 150 clients, some of them prominent in Maine.
