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.

According the Manatee County Sheriff's Department report, Dowling walked into an F.Y.E. store with a friend and simply swiped the item, which is valued at $34.99. He tried to make a run for it through a local Sears, but was caught on security camera and tracked down by the F.Y.E assistant manager.

Dowling was arrested on charges of petty theft and giving a false name while lawfully detained. He remains behind bars in lieu of $120 bond, but has released the following statement:

"We were just having fun holding Justin Bieber hostage."

Gary V. Giordano is still in custody following the disappearance of Robyn Gardner in Aruba, and will be for another 16 days, according to reports.

While authorities continue to investigate his suspected involvement in the vanishing of his travel partner, authorities will not release Giordano.

Giordano's lawyer, Michael Lopez, said a 16-day extension was granted because the judge felt, "there are too many open questions as of yet."

The active search was called off for the missing Maryland woman, suggesting that officials believe she may not be recovered by rescue efforts.

Just how convinced they are of Giordano's involvement is unclear.

Nearly two weeks after Gardner, 35, went missing, Lopez pleaded for the release of his client, arguing that authorities don't have "hard proof."

Her family members aren't objecting, however.

Alleged comedian Adam Carolla, who is apparently still around, is under fire over a slew of anti-gay comments made on his Adam Carolla Show podcast.

Among other things, in an attempt to be funny, he also told LGBT people to "shut up" because they are "ruining his life" by speaking out about equality.

He went on to say that members of the LGBT community should stop using the letters "LGBT" to describe themselves, and should instead use "YUCK."

Regarding transgendered people, Carolla asked: ‘When did we start giving a sh!t about these people?’” He then singled out Chaz Bono in particular.

These are just some of the excerpts we can print here, too.

Carolla offered the obligatory half-assed apology to EW via his rep, saying “I’m sorry that my comments were hurtful. I’m a comedian, not a politician.”

Suffice it to say, that didn't cut it with the gay community.

Tylar Witt was 14 when she helped her boyfriend kill her mom.

She will be spending more years than that behind bars even after she was given a reduced sentence in exchange for testifying against her accomplice.

Steven Colver, now 21, was sentenced to life without parole for the murder of 47-year-old Joanne Witt in 2009. Witt, now 16, will serve 15 to life.

  • Steven Colver

Tylar Witt, who was convicted of second-degree murder, helped hatch the plot after Joanne Witt made a statutory rape complaint against her boyfriend.

Joanne gave police her daughter's diary. That was apparently enough to prompt Steven Colver to murder her, with Tylar aiding in the planning process.

Tylar testified at Colver's trial that they planned the killing together, but while he did it, she "put my hands on my ears, closed my eyes and hummed."

Michael Witt, who mopped up his sister's blood from her bed after she was stabbed 20 times, unleashed his anger, calling Colver a "psychotic S.O.B."

New details have emerged regarding the death of former Warrant frontman Jani Lane, and they don't paint a pretty picture.

As previously reported, the 47-year old's body was found in a Woodland Hills hotel room yesterday. Paramedics pronounced Lane dead at the scene and put his time of death around 5:15 p.m.

No official cause has been listed and an autopsy is planned for later today. But sources tell TMZ that police suspect an accidental overdose because investigators discovered a half-empty bottle of vodka, along with prescription pills, inside the room.

Lane has battled substance abuse for years. He was arrested for DUI in 2010 and was sentenced to 120 days in prison.

The lady of the Dougherty Gang stripped down for a hardcore XXX photo shoot just days before she began her now-infamous robbing/shooting spree.

Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, was a professional exotic dancer, so it's not too stunning that she was approached with an explicit, nude photo opportunity.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Asked if she would waitress at events hosted by friends who run poker games, and pose nude for some of the pals' promotional materials. 

We know. We're freaked out as well.

Lee obliged. It's NSFW, and if you prefer ogling women who are attractive and/or sane, and/or not attempted cop killers, you may want to skip this.

The Dougherty Gang, arrested in Colorado the day before yesterday, embarked on their terror trek following the August 1 sentencing of Ryan Dougherty.

Lucinda Moyers is accused of breaking into Jeopardy host Alex Trebek's hotel room last month and stealing items that include a purse, a bracelet and $650. Trebek even tore his Achilles heel chasing after her.

But Mark Jacobs, the public defender handling Moyers' case, has a unique defense for his client: she's a prostitute, not a thief.

He told The San Francisco Weekly that Moyers was in the hotel to service a John (not Trebek, she says) and was never actually in Trebek's room. And no one can prove otherwise!

"He saw her in the hallway. There's no one who is going to be able to testify that she was seen in the room," Jacobs told the newspaper.

This is not the kind of bust Shanna McLaughlin would like to be known for.

The former Playboy Playmate (Miss July 2010!) was arrested yesterday at Orlando International Airport for carrying a LOADED gun through airport security. Police were contacted after a .45 caliber revolver, with six hollow-point bullets, was found in the 26-year old's luggage.

McLaughlin claimed the weapon belonged to a boyfriend, and she possessed a permit to carry it... but she didn't have it with her. Don't you hate when that happens?

The blonde model - who doesn't look too broken up about the arrest in the above mug shot - has charged with carrying a firearm in a place prohibited by law and is free on bail.

Authorities have called off the active search for the missing Robyn Gardner, an American who disappeared in Aruba earlier this month, reports say.

Gary Giordano, the man who traveling with Gardner, is currently being held in jail on the Caribbean island, while denying any role in her vanishing.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

He told police she disappeared while they were snorkeling off the coast at the Nanki Country Club. Giordano says Gardner did not return to shore.

Aruban Solicitor General Taco Stein said they had no more leads to pursue so they will question Giordano again about Robyn's disappearance.

They are calling him a "suspect," though he hasn't been charged.

"They suspect murder but there's no proof, to my knowledge," Michael O. Lopez, Giordano's attorney, tells ABC News. "I don't see any proof."

"There's no proof and there's no motive."
