6 years worth huh? If found guilty put this rapist away for life----given his background he'll have to be in protective custody in State Prison---thats 23 hours in a cell a day. Not much room to dance in there.

Uh, we'll await your side of the story....put this guy in with that Indian clothes designer thats up on the same charges from last year---using their "in the business" jobs for pressuring the unsuspecting for sex...its called will do very very hard time the remainder of your days if you have in fact been doing it for 6 years.

I knew he was with a lot of women but i never figured he would do something like this. He is well known in the salsa scene and people look up to him. WOW he really messed up. I knew something was creepy about this guy. Well as much as i love his dancing, he deserves to go to jail for what he did.

Honestly, none of you guys know Alex like I do. He is a nice man, and would never do such a thing. He's a dancer and that's what he like most. So I don't know what kind of slutty tricks would like to go and ruin other peoples life, because they have nothing better to do. People never think about other people. Those girls are so cruel. Who ever they are really needs so stop. I know I know i'm pretty much rambaling but really You guys don't know him. Alex da Silva is the best person ever. and I'm really aggrivated that these girls did that. You guys are messed up for just putting him down, like you personally know him. I do personally know him, and I'm a girl. He's never ever touched me in inappropriet ways. Maybe a hug, but that's it. So please people think about it. For the people that really know him and want him to skeep dancing support him. He's one of the greatest dancers in the world. I honestly can say he's one of my heroes. and I don't belive he rapped anybody. So that's all I have to say.! Thank you!

INNOCENT until proven guilty. Now, lets check the "conviction odds chart". Is he rich? politically connected? did he vote Obama? If most of these answers are yes....he will get cleared. If not then you''ll be "dancing behind bars"!

I know him and have been with him at times where girls approach him and he say's no thank you... I know people love to run with stuff like this and make it bigger than it is. But knowing him like I do for over 8yrs I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE THIS..... I cant wait until he is cleared and is out.. His life will never be the same, but free is free. Let's wait and see whats happened with the women and then pass judgment on him, I just don't think he would do this. And for the police to open flood gates to angry women who now know what his so called trick is... I could walk in and say he raped me when he took me to his house. COME ON...Alex is no saint but he is also no animal.
