Alex Da Silva Sentenced to 10 Years For Rape

by at . Comments

Former So You Think You Can Dance choreographer Alex Da Silva has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a former dance student, reports say.

Da Silva was arrested back in 2009 for a whole host of felonies.

The 43-year-old was charged with sexually assaulting four women, all former dance students of his between the ages of 20 and 26 at the time. Sick.

Da Silva was convicted of one count of rape and one count of assault with intent to rape. The jury deadlocked on the other charges, which were dismissed.

Da Silva appeared on Seasons 1-4 of SYTYCD (above, mentoring now-DWTS pro Chelsie Hightower). He was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Fellow one-time SYTYCD mainstay Shane Sparks was also charged with a sex offense recently, pleading guilty to unlawful sex with a minor.

Alex is a jerk. I have known since 1990 and he always pushy with women. Had no respect for them or their dates or boyfriends. It took over 20 years for him to pay a little price for his actions.
