Former America's Best Dance Crew Judge/Choreographer Pleads 'No Contest' To Having Sex With A Minor

shane sparks going to jail

This guy probably deserves even more of a punishment…but at least he'll spend some time behind bars.

To recap, former America's Best Dance Crew judge/choreographer Shane Sparks was arrested in December 2009, and ordered to trial almost a year later on eight sex charges, including "lewd acts on a child" and two counts of "oral copulation of a person under 16."

Now, Sparks has pleaded no contest to "having unlawful sex with a minor under 16," and as a result he'll be serving 270 days in jail. He'll also get five years of probation, and he'll be forced to attend 52 counseling sessions. AND he won't be allowed to be around female minors when other adults aren't present.

Hopefully this is the last we hear from this guy. We're glad to see some justice being served.

Do U think Sparks is being appropriately punished for his crimes???

    the only thing that is wrong about this is that some old dude can marry a young girl and get away with it. You can pick and choose who gets punished and who doesnt. Its sick all around but why isnt the really old due from lost being punished and the girls parents too? I mean come on really??? this is whats wrong with the world today, old dirty men and parents who just dnt care about their children. SICK. The parents should be punished as well as the old guy. Its not a pick and choose who to punish type of crime.

    I believe he also was a choreographer for "So you think you can dance". Shocking news

    Disgusting! But let's be real here for a minute. There are amish or polygamist sects out there that have little girls marrying old disgusting men. Or on the other side of the world where girls are being sold or given as gifts to vile old assholes. Not making excuses for this idiot but this shit happens everyday and only one dude from a TV show gets arrested while the others do this kid of shit. To men out there…please make sure the girl you're with is older than 18. Just because they hit puberty it doesn't make them an adult. Stop being stupid or it will lead you in jail like this idiot.

    He judged and was around all those little underage girls auditioning for the show; what a SICKO!

    Sad but so true. This man has been doing this for a long time. My friend dated him when we were in High School. Yes, we were 16-17!!! This was a decade ago.

    He needs to be punished, although you see me shocked. He was my fav on So you think you can dance. It's too bad that he overstepped his boundaries and not only does he have to go to jail, his career is over.

    You know you are a fucking hypocrite Perez when it comes to this kind of thing. You are always so up in arms and disgusted and all about throwing the book at these folks, yet you consistently made sexual innuendos and comments regarding teen celebs you thought attractrive. Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner, The Jo Bros and others were all routinely lusted after in your blog while under 18 years of age as "Yummy, Yummy, Screw, Screw". Pick one, indignant or horny!

    And yet in an episode of Perez's beloved Glee, the Puck character is having sex with all these women whose pools he was cleaning. And he was proud of it. He's supposed to be 16. What is the difference?

    Re: NiKaNoOdLe – Well said :)

    i highly doubt these young girls were completely innocent….probably complete sluts by the age of 12

  11. NYCCR says – reply to this

    I am just glad he got caught! A friend of mine took his class when we were in high school and he invited her to his house to "dicuss her career" but asked her not to tell anyone because the other girls would get jealous. What a creepy dude eww

    There is something odd about this entire situation…from what I read when he was first arrested…the girl waited 15 years to come forward (when Shane became a bigger celebrity), he dated her for a while but didnt know she was underage.

    Re: Jennnnnnn – i always thought the timing was odd too. but i guess..makes sense right? might as well wait till theres a bigger pay day.

    I'm sure that girl was a willing participant. It's one thing to rape a minor, it's a whole other situation to sleep with a young girl who is a big whorebag and WANTS the attention. A girl who likely WANTS to be pounded by some celebrity, and probably has been by many before him. No one can say without knowing the specifics. Maybe he force her but I doubt it. What is wrong with America anyway? Kids are having sex ALL OF THE TIME by the age 16. Does anyone else remember what it was like to be 16? Nearly everyone in my high school was having sex by that age. At 16 you're already a JUNIOR in high school. It's really not THAT young. Although he does look like a creep. I'm certainly not condoning this but kids are smarter and more sexually mature than we like to give them credit for!

    Re: Trina Bean
    She was 12. How many 12 year olds do you know that can make sound decisions? What kind of man, at the age of 25, thinks that having sex with a 12 year old is acceptable? She wasn't some 16 year old high schooler, she was in middle school. That's sick. He was in a position of authority and he took advantage of her.
