Update on Shane Sparks: pleads no contest on one count, will serve jail time

According to the LA Times,  choreographer and former ABDC judge Shane Sparks entered a plea of no contest on one felony charge of having sex with a minor. At his trial on August 16, 2011, 7 other felony charges were dismissed in exchange for the plea bargain. Shane was sentenced to 270 days in a Los Angeles County jail (to be served sometime in the next year), and five years probation. In addition, he must attend sex-offender counseling and not "go near any female minors without an adult present".
