So You Think You Can Dance" Choreographer Sent to Prison for Rape

Posted By Los Angeles Defense Attorney || 15-Feb-2012

A salsa dance instructor best known as a choreographer on the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” has been sentenced to 10 years in State Prison for Rape and Assault.

A jury convicted Alex Da Silva in September of raping a 22-year-old woman in 2002 and assaulting a 25-year-old woman in 2009 with intent to commit rape. The victims were either dancers or aspiring dancers who met him through his dance instruction classes.

Once Da Silva finishes serving his time in State Prison, he will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with Rape or Assault, or any other type of Sex Crime, it is crucial that you contact an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer to fight for your future.
