PORTLAND, MAINE (PIX11)- The so-called Zumba Madame could end up serving time for her role in a prostitution ring.

Alexis Wright pleaded guilty to twenty charges in a Maine courtroom Friday. She had over one hundred charges against her.

She admitted to running a high-class prostitution service out of her Zumba fitness studio.

Wright also falsely collected welfare assistance while in business.

The high-profile trial involved sex videos and exposed clients.

These included a firefighter, a high school coach and a priest.

As part of a plea deal she may have to serve ten months in jail as well as pay the state $57,000 in restitution.

Wright’s business partner, Mark Strong, was charged with promoting prostitution. He will spend ten days in jail.
