So You Think You Can Do Time: Alex Da Silva Arrested For Rape ... Again

by at . Comments

FormerSo You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva was arrested at his N. Hollywood home for allegedly sexually assaulting four women.

If this story sounds familiar, it's that he was arrested in April for ... the exact same thing. Only the District Attorney did not end up pressing charges.

This time, however, Da Silva is facing four counts of forcible rape, two counts of assault with intent to commit rape and to top it off, two counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object. That is pretty serious stuff, to put it mildly.

The D.A. says the alleged assaults occurred between August 2002-March 2009.

The four alleged victims were between the ages of 20-26 and were all dancers or aspiring dancers who say they met Alex through dance classes.

It's about time an intelligent District Attorney was put on this case.  Former lacking DAs is the reason for the case being dragged on for so long.  Alex is a criminal and deserves everything that is to come - life in prison.  Rapists don't show their dark side to the public.  Their own families don't even know it!  May justice be served.
