KTLA recently reported that the Los Angeles Police Department arrested Shane Sparks, a judge on the reality dance show “America’s Best Dance Crew” and a choreographer for the hit show “So You Think You Can Dance.” A warrant was issued for 40-year-old Sparks who was taken into custody for multiple charges including the following: two counts of sexual intercourse with a minor, two counts of oral copulation with a minor, and lewd conduct with a child under 14. Sparks’ attorney says he is innocent and is being falsely accused due to his fame. The crime allegedly took place over 15 years ago.
Child molestation charges are extremely serious. Penalties for a sex crime conviction in the state of California generally include the real possibility of many years in state prison. A conviction will also require a life long registration on the state-wide sex offender data base.
