- From staff reports

ALFRED - At least 12 men who were charged with being prostitution clients of Alexis Wright have now been found guilty of engaging a prostitute, according to information released Friday.

The York County District Attorney's Office identified the 12th man in response to a Freedom of Access request by the Portland Press Herald.

Louis Solomon, 55, of 210 Beach St. in Saco, pleaded no contest to a charge of engaging a prostitute. His attorney appeared on his behalf on Dec. 20 in York County Superior Court.

Solomon was found guilty and fined $400 plus $90 in court costs and fees.

Solomon's admission brought the number of people charged with engaging a prostitute in the case to 66.

Wright, 30, a former Zumba instructor, is accused of running a brothel from her studio in Kennebunk. She has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts, including promotion of prostitution, engaging in prostitution, violation of privacy, conspiracy, tax offenses and receiving welfare when ineligible.

She reportedly kept detailed records of more than 150 clients, including some prominent figures.
