Sparks, best known as a choreographer and judge on Randy Jackson's hit MTV show "America's Best Dance Crew", was taken into police custody in Los Angeles on a felony warrant in December 2009 and later released on $590,000 bail.

According to the criminal complaint filed by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, Sparks allegedly committed lewd acts upon a child in multiple incidents between 1994 and 1997. Sparks has pleaded not guilty to six counts of lewd acts on a minor and two counts of oral copulation of a person under in March 16. His defense attorney, Steve Meister, has branded the accusations "extortion, Hollywood style".

On Monday, November 1, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled there was enough evidence for the 41-year-old to stand trial. Sparks is scheduled to be arraigned on November 15.
