'Bachelorette' contestant convicted of assault and battery

The Bachelorette contestant Lincoln Adim must register as sex offender after conviction

"Mr. Adim was found guilty on May 21 of indecent assault and battery for groping and assaulting an adult female on a harbor cruise ship early on May 30, 2016", Jake Wark of the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office told media outlets in a statement.

One of the contestants on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette was convicted of a serious crime days before the show premiered in May.

We have to imagine that Becca finds out about this sometime during the season and sends Lincoln home but, as far as the most recent episode, Lincoln had yet to be eliminated.

The Bachelorette contestant Lincoln Adim was convicted of indecent assault and battery last month in upstate NY, a week before he appeared on the Season 14 premiere on ABC. The judge ordered him to stay away from the victim and attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week during those two years. If he fails to comply with the terms, he could be ordered to serve his term behind bars.

Added Wark: "By law, he is expected to register as a sex offender".

"No one on "The Bachelorette" production had any knowledge about the incident or charges when Lincoln Adim was cast, and he himself denied ever having engaged in or having been charged with any sexual misconduct", a statement to Fox News from Warner Bros., which produces the show for ABC read. The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8pm ET on ABC.
