'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.

no more pain    

I was 16 when I was sodomized by another 16 year old. I was raped and I am a female. so to those who are trying to down play the fact that he may have been a teen are idiots. It is just like saying oh, he/she is only 16 so shooting and killing or robbing someone is no big deal. A crime is a crime and punishment should be just.

Wow what a deal - He repeatedly rapes at least 7 white girls between the ages of 12 and 17 and all he gets for punishment is 4 months in jail.

Wow. 270 days for raping a child? WTF???? He should have gotten years. Years for each offense, each touch, the rape. This is disgusting, the judge should be ashamed with this light sentence. I am so glad this woman was brave enough to tell her story after all these years. The torment she carried around with her was far more than 270 days!!!!!!!!!!!!
