Hip-hop choreographer Shane Sparks was arrested on Friday morning and charged with nine counts of child molestation. This comes as a surprise to fans who follow 40-year old Sparks who is a judge on America's Best Dance Crew and a choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance.
The charges stem back to 1994 when Shane Sparks allegedly performed "lewd upon acts on a child", whose age has not been revealed. However, the charges state that Sparks was at least 10 years older than his victim. Sparks was 25 years old in 1994, which means the child was no older than 15.
Are you shocked by the charges? Knowing that Shane Sparks has been accused of such a heinous crime, would it affect your decision to watch shows such as America's Best Dance Crew and So You Think You Can Dance, that he's played an integral part in?
