Prosecutors and the defense have concluded their first round of settlement discussions in the case of a Zumba fitness instructor facing charges of prostitution and tax and welfare violations. Wednesday’s closed-door settlement conference focusing on Alexis Wright lasted nearly five hours at the Cumberland County Courthouse.
