Former So You Think You Can Dance Choreographer Sentenced for Rape

Truth rating: 10


Former “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographer Alex Da Silva has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a woman in 2002 and assaulting another in 2009.

The decision was handed down in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Da Silva was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

In September, a jury convicted him of the rape and the assault with intent to commit rape, but deadlocked on four additional counts of violence, including the alleged rapes of two other women in 2004 and 2005.

Judge Kathleen Kennedy has dismissed those other charges.

Da Silva has been in jail since his 2009 arrest.

He appeared on the first four seasons of “So You Think You Can Dance.”
