Shane Sparks Pleads No Contest to Unlawful Sex With Minor; Jail Awaits

by at . Comments

America's Best Dance Crew and So You Think You Can Dance judge Shane Sparks was in front of a different kind of judge yesterday. It didn't end well.

Sparks pleaded no contest to a felony count of having unlawful sex with a minor under 16. He faced eight felonies in connection with alleged sex acts.

Under a plea deal approved by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Martin Herscovitz, the other felony counts were all dismissed given the plea.

Sparks agreed to plead no contest to the single felony. He will serve 270 days in jail sometime over the next year and receive five years' probation.

Sparks, who was arrested for child molestation in late 2009, also must attend sex offender counseling and not go near female minors sans an adult.

Los Angeles police investigators said the choreographer committed multiple lewd acts upon a child, who was under 14 at the time, starting in 1994.

Completely dissapointed with the law here in this country. No justice whatsoever was made here. Most offenders, especially with little punishment repeat it!! There's enough adult women and men to have sex with, especially here in the u.s. Why the hell u have to mess with little kids. 18 = adult sickos. I will fight for the death penalty for repeat offenders!!

STATUTORY RAPE IS ONE OF THE DUMBEST LAWS MADE. IF SOMEONE HAS REACHED PUBERTY, A_ND IS WILLING TO HAVE A SEXUAL ENCOUNTER, AGE SHOULDN'T MATTER.

if he was arrested for it in 2009, wtf was he doing on the show around minors? surely this would have been a violation already?
