Dance Judge Shane Sparks to Face Trial
Choreographer Shane Sparks, who appeared as a judge on MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew,” was ordered in November to go to trial on eight sex counts involving an underage girl in the 1990s. Following a preliminary hearing, the judge ruled that there was enough evidence for Sparks to stand trial for six counts of lewd acts on a child and two counts of oral copulation of a person under 16. He was arrested last year and released on $590,000 bail. Sparks’ lawyer says he’s innocent.
