This is the kind of news that we hate to report. Award-winning So You Think You Can DanceÂ choreographer and judge on America’s Best Dance Crew, Shane Sparks,Â was arrested yesterday morning in Los Angeles and charged with eight counts of child molestation. Keep reading for more details…
Bruce Borihanh, LA Police Department spokesman, told E! NewsÂ that they have been looking into Sparks behavior for quite some time. “Sparks has been the subject of an ongoing child-molestation investigation,” Borihanh said. He was arrested from his Hollywood home and is being held under $590,000 bail.
Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, told E! that one of the incidents started nearly a decade ago. “There’s one victim, and it occurred in the ’90s. I believe it started in ’94 and went on for several years,” Robison said. “It’s an underage girl. She was under 15 when the alleged crimes occurred. She is an adult now and came forward to authorities.”
