Attorney of Shane Sparks Blames "Hollywood Style Extortion" for Molestation Charges

by at . Comments

Shane Sparks is out of jail.

The award-winning choreographer posted bail last night, and his attorney quickly responded to charges that his client is guilty of child molestation, stemming from a decade-old incident.

Steve Meister says Sparks will fight against what he refers to as "extortion, Hollywood style."

As a refresher: Sparks has served as a judge on America's Best Dance Crew. He was arrested on Friday and charged with eight counts of child molestation.

However, Meister told TMZ the whole arrest "stinks to high heaven" because his client's accuser waited 15 years before she came forward. He claims she's just interested in Sparks' fame/fortune.

Meister says the charges "are completely without merit" and the dancer "knows he is innocent and will fight to clear his name." We'll keep readers apprised of this case as it moves forward.
