CLEVELAND, OH – A Cleveland dance teacher has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for assaulting multiple former students from 2013 to 2018. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced the sentencing of Desmond Beasley, 36.

“Desmond Beasley violated his primary duty as a teacher. Instead of caring for his students, he used his position of trust to prey upon them,” said Prosecutor O’Malley. “I hope his conviction and sentence provides some peace and justice for his victims and sends a stern message that this vile behavior will not be tolerated.”
