    February 18, 2018: UPDATE:

    Alex was released from prison on February 15th, 2018. He spent the last year or so at Maricopa County Jail in Arizona. On February 15th, 2018 he was sent to a deportation facility in Sacramento, CA, where he is currently awaiting a court date.

    Alex is not a US citizen. He is a citizen of Brazil. The United States government intends to deport him to Brazil, unless the public can convince them with letters of recommendation. Alex would like to stay in the United States to re-obtain his possessions and to clear his name. He will be going before a judge today who will decide whether or not Alex will be able to stay in this country while his case is being reviewed for a permanent decision. A final decision would take about 7 years for them to make.

    During his time in prison, Alex has read over 1000 books, taught himself how to read and write English fluently, written several movie scripts, and has had a lot of time to think.

    Now that he is out of prison, Alex and the people awaiting deportation at the holding facility are woken up every two hours for a headcount. They also have to pay for their own food and essentials. All of Alex's money and real estate was used for his defense. All but five of his 29 vintage cars were stolen from him. He has very little money to pay for food at this holding facility.

    Please send inquiries to: [email protected]. The following was put together by a generous friend of his to aid you with instructions on how to contact him:

    Alex will be going to the San Francisco ICE location sometimes. He can receive visitors while there.

    Immigration determination process:

    1. He has been given the names and contact #s for free immigration attorneys and is getting some guidance from inmates as to which are “better” than others - although apparently none as optimal as hiring your own

    2. The inmates state that at his first hearing before the judge within 14 days - the judge will postpone his hearing - (this is inconsistent with what some private attorneys have thus far suggested)

    3. Alex has been in touch with “for fee” immigration attorneys who will in all likelihood charge more than he is able to pay

    4. If staying here is deemed to be an option, Alex will have to post bond and does not as yet know how much that might be

    5. Alex can choose to return to Brazil at any time.

    To those who have already written a character reference; thank you. Unfortunately we have since learned that a specific format needs to be followed - when I receive I’ll send it along and unfortunately request that you redo your letters accordingly.

    To those of you who could offer Alex employment upon his release, there is another form that needs to be completed and returned; I’ll be sending it along as well upon receipt.

    Character references - we are looking tp obtain at least 300 - 400 letters. That’s how many other folks at the detention center have and apparently volume matters!

    Opinion by Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

    Alex will spend the next five or so years in prison.

    I believe Milton did an excellent, non-biased job at reporting his sentence, from both a man and a woman's point of view at here. Interestingly, further comments were also posted from an outright "Honest Player" point of view as well.

    All I can say is, out of all the people I've known in this business, Alex knows nothing else better than how to make a great living dancing, teaching, and choreographing for the Stars.

    I believe that like most people of his character and fame, he will be back in high gear sooner than we know, doing what he has always done best. Dance Salsa. Player or Not, Broken Relationships or not, Alex will leave jail and continue to be a very successful dancer, performer, and choreographer, once again. I predict that he will succeed and continue his work, dancing throughout the world, performing, and grooming world champion competitors and performers of the future.

    He will always and forever deny what happened. He will continue what he was doing best, as if nothing ever happened. Look at Martha Stewart? She's stronger than ever now, tainted or not.

    Salsa is his passion, his love, his freedom, and his dream. I remember one night at the Mayan nightclub in Los Angeles. He said hello and we both looked over the crowd for a few minutes. He said, "Edie, you and I have seen a lot of places, a lot of countries, and a lot of clubs. I've been coming here [to the Mayan] for almost twenty years. I never get tired of it. I just love it here. There's something about this place... the energy, the music... there's no place like it in the world." I just smiled and gave him a hug, "I agree."

    He "appreciated" what he had.

    The human mind is a VERY POWERFUL instrument.

    It's not what happens to you in life, it's how you HANDLE IT, that people will remember.

    There is a reason for everything. We never know the reason "while" the obstacle or issue it is happening, but in the future, we end up thanking the Universe for our sufferings of the past. We finally and humbly understand "why" certain things happened to us. Without obstacles (some horrible), we will NEVER truly and fully learn the valuable lessons we were brought here to learn. For some of us the only way to TRULY UNDERSTAND is to learn the hard way. Many of you will think I'm crazy, but I believe that the people that hurt us the most, are really our Spiritual Teachers in disguise. I believe we are Spiritual Beings having a "Human" experience - only here to learn the lessons that we need to "move on" to something more incredible. Pointing your finger at someone never gets anyone anywhere. When you point your finger at someone's else's faults, remember there are three of YOUR OWN fingers pointing back at YOU. No matter what "price" Alex will pay during this time in prison, when he gets out, I predict that Alex will have learned whatever lesson(s) it was that he needed to learn, and eventually have it ALL back - and then some.

    I also predict that, like my good friend Jeff Camillo, he will start up a few Salsa Group classes in prison for those guys who want to get back into society and start over again, this time, on the "right" foot. (No pun intended).

    True dancers do not dance because they want to

    but because they HAVE TO.



    I got a phone call today (September 19, 2011) at 2:18pm from the prosecuting attorney of the Alex DaSilva Case.

    He was found guilty of rape, and "is looking at 14 years in prison when he gets sentenced." - per the Los Angeles Superior Court's prosecuting attorney. If that is true, he will be 60 years old when he is released. The official sentencing will be made on January 27th, 2012 in Los Angeles, California District Court, USA

    Here are the Facts:

    • He has not been able to get out of jail since 2009, when he was originally convicted, but not yet proven guilty.
    • His bail was set at 6.2 million dollars. He was considered a flight risk, and a danger to society (women) where he worked (with women).
    • I was flown in to Los Angeles, California to testify at his trial last week (9/8/11) because of the interview I did with him, telling his side of the story. (ref: Because of that interview, my emails from Yahoo were subpeona'd by the United States government since 2009 for any evidence. (yes, Yahoo still has ALL YOUR EMAILS WHETHER YOU ERASED THEM OR NOT) and the government can demand them.

      • There were 12 jurors at the trial. 8 Men and 4 women.
      • The judge was female.
      • The prosecuting attorney was female
      • His attorney was male.
      • He was convicted of the following:
      • - One count of "Rape". Unaminous decision by the jury.
      • - One count of "Assault with Intent to Rape" another victim. Unaminous decision by the jury.
      • - Jury hung on 2 other victims. They needed a unanimous (all 12) decision. The vote was 11 to 1 for "guilt" on one victim. Jury voted 8 guilty, 4 not guilty on the other victim.
      • He was kept away from the general prison population until his trial, so he been basically left "alone" in a solitary cell up until his sentencing date this November.

    This is my own (Edie, The Salsa FREAK's) personal opinion: Alex may serve less time due to the fact that he has spent the past two years in prison, not being able to afford his bail. 6.2 million dollars is a LOT of money - more than Michael Jackson and OJ Simpson's bails COMBINED - who could possibly afford that amount of bail to stay out of prison until proven guilty?

    Whether we believe that he is guilty or not, I personally feel he has already served his sentence. From what I understand, his property (real estate, cars) have been vandalized and/or stolen. He has been behind bars for more than two years already. He has been in solitary confinement this entire time, until January 27th, when his sentencing takes place.

    I had a chance to see Alex during the trial. When I saw him I was quite surprised at how healthy he appeared. He looked ... LARGER. He did not have any fat that I could see, but his shoulders, arms, legs, and overall physique appeared to be about 30 pounds heavier. Just seeing his change in physique proved beyond a shadow of a doubt how much he is working on himself to stay healthy and strong despite his circumstances.

    As a colleague, I can't tell you enough of how bad I feel for his situation. I also feel horrible for the women in this case as well. As a woman who has been in similar circumstances, and then eventually beat up and hospitalized by angry boyfriends, I can tell you from my own personal experiences that coming forward in public is no easy task. As a female victim, what do you get out of it? Absolutely nothing. These women came forward facing only embarrassment and ridicule by the public and opposition.

    The jury got to see both sides of the story. Alex got a chance to take the stand and testify himself. After hearing both sides of the story, the jury was convinced of the verdict they gave him. If you were a victim of a crime, we should at least have some hope that the United States judicial system will do "the victims" justice.

    Whether you believe he is guilty or not, I find it extremely difficult to even imagine what Alex is possibly going through right now, and what will happen in the future for him while he is in prison. Alex has not only lost his freedom, but his freedom to dance. That in itself, is worse than death itself. - Edie, The Salsa FREAK!!

      Alex Da Silva is scheduled to be sentenced to prison on January 27, 2012 for anywhere from 5 to 14 years, depending on the Court’s discretion. Under state law, Alex will be required to serve 85% of whatever time he receives.

      Once he completes the sentence, Alex will be required to register as a sex offender of the remainder of his life. As a registered sex offender, he will face severe restrictions on where he can live and work. No person, regardless of whether he treated others with kindness or respect, should suffer these consequences for acts he did not commit.

      If anyone has credible information that any of the four women who accused Alex did not tell the truth, please contact me immediately at (213)974-8158.

      I am not Alex’s attorney, but I have direct access to Alex’s attorney.

      Time is of the essence. Thank you.
