From our Bitter Disappointment desk
For months the Boston Herald has been the hardreading staff’s Zumba Hooker Headquarters.
But no more.
When Alexis Wright, the pride of Maine’s hooker community, pled guilty to 20 counts of prostitution and etc. on Friday, it was only the Boston Globe that recorded it.
PORTLAND, Maine — A dance instructor accused of using her Zumba fitness studio as a front for prostitution pleaded guilty Friday to 20 counts in a scandal that captivated a quiet seaside town.
The agreement that followed a second day of plea negotiations on Friday spares Alexis Wright from the prospect of a high-profile trial featuring sex videos, exhibitionism, and pornography. Prosecutors will recommend a jail sentence of 10 months when she is sentenced on May 31.
Wright quietly answered ‘‘guilty’’ 20 times when the judge read the counts, which include engaging in prostitution, promotion of prostitution, conspiracy, tax evasion, and theft by deception.
‘‘We’re very satisfied with it. It’s an appropriate outcome, given the gravity of her actions,’’ Assistant Attorney General Darcy Mitchell said after the brief court hearing.
But the hardbreathing staff is not at all satisfied with it, since Saturday’s Boston Herald featured exactly nothing about the “appropriate outcome.”
Sure, our feisty local tabloid played catch-up with this Associated Press report on its website, but really, Heraldniks:
Beaten by the Globe on the Zumba Hooker beat?
Shame on you.
