'Dance Crew' Judge


In Child Sex Case

8/25/2011 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "America's Best Dance Crew" judge Shane Sparks allegedly sexually abused at least 6 young girls IN ADDITION to the woman who claims Sparks raped her when she was 12 years old  ... this according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

The documents were just made public ... following a plea deal Sparks made with the L.A. County District Attorney in which he received 270 days in jail after pleading no contest to having unlawful sex with a minor under 16.

The allegations in the documents are extremely disturbing -- with the victim telling police Sparks forced her to have sex with him after driving her home from a dance class he had taught in 1994 when she was only 12 years old.

According to the docs, the victim claims Sparks took her to HIS home where he started to "make out" with her ... and then he "rolled on top of her and pinned her beneath him."

The docs explain, "The victim told him she was a virgin and not ready for intercourse" but Sparks "ignored her pleas and penetrated her vagina for several minutes. He then drove her home."

According to the docs, investigators found "at least six other victims, whom between the ages of 12-17, were also abused by [Sparks]." No further details about the other alleged victims are included in the docs.

Sparks is expected to begin his sentence sometime in the next year.

I don't understand this. The DA had proof that he molested more girls and he's only serving 270 days? Did I read that right? He's got a damn good lawyer.

Plea Deal! The U.S. Constitution needs to be re-written to state that any person who has sex with a willing minor shall receive 80 years in jail. For multiple counts or rape the sentence shall be no less than 5 consecutive life sentences in a cell with 5 men who have daughters they love , and are racist serial killers. The death penalty shall be considered in all states which allow such sentences.

What a piece of sh*t!

He sexually abused seven young girls and he's serving less than a year in prison? Unbelievable. He should be locked up for the rest of his life.

It should be illegal to plea deal with sex offenders, especially with children.

If you have any friends or business associates in the jail he is going to please let them know what Sparks has done. This prick should not be allowed out and should be taken care of in the clink. Sparks is what is gonna fly outta his ass when he gets to his new home. Sleep tight.

He gets 9 months for ruining a girl's life!? Hopefully his career will be over and he'll suffer for the rest of HIS life. I mean, what parent in their right mind is going to want this dirtbag to teach their child how to dance after this incident? Douche!

WTF Nate? So, if he was white, he would just get away with it? Also, saying whity is racist of you. He is a man who raped a child. I dont care what race you are, you deserve to die. Also, who cares how long ago it was, he pled no contest, so the turd did it. She was freakin 12.
