Shane Sparks Arrested On Child Molestation Charges

December 18, 2009 / Posted by:

Shane Sparks, a judge on America’s Best Dance Crew and a guest choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance?, was arrested early this morning for allegedly committing acts of child touching. The District Attorney’s office in Los Angeles filed 9 8 counts of child molestation charges against Shane.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the child touching allegedly began in 1994. Shane is accused of committing lewd acts upon an underage girl who was at least 10 years younger than him. The documents state Shane was born in 1969 (his Wikipedia bio says 1974), so he was 25 at the time. That means the girl was 15-years-old or younger. (Insert a Mary Murphy scream of horror here)

Shane is currently being held on $590,000 bail.

Shane isn’t the only SYTYCD choreographer that has been accused of not keeping his hands to himself. Alex Da Silva was arrested in April for allegedly raping 4 of his dance students.

Um. The producers of SYTYCD need to make Chris Hansen a regular judge from now on.
