Woman charged with hiring prostitute


Police have identified another person accused of paying for sex with a woman charged with using her Zumba dance studio as a front for prostitution. On Friday, police identified the first accused prostitution client who is a woman. They said she is the wife of a man charged in October with engaging a prostitute. The latest case brings the total to at least 65 people charged with engaging a prostitute. The owner of the studio — Alexis Wright, 29 — has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts, including prostitution, invasion of privacy, tax evasion, and other charges in the case. Her alleged business partner also has pleaded not guilty.
