Shane Sparks says he is innocent of child molestation charges. Well, actually Shane didn't say anything, but his lawyer did. His lawyer did a great job of spinning. He told E! News that Shane's case is just like the John Travolta and John Stamos cases where people were extorting celebrities. Huh. For a second that gets you to stop in your tracks. Then of course you remember one very very important point. John Travolta and John Stamos were never arrested. The people trying to extort them were arrested.
Shane's lawyer went on to say that the only reason Shane was arrested now is because he is famous. "It's a bogus accusation that reeks of opportunism and exploitation. The timing is beyond suspicious, and this whole thing stinks to high heaven. We are going to fight to clear his name, and we are going to succeed."
