The new season of ‘The Bachelorette’ hasn’t even aired yet, but there’s already major drama going down on set.
Lincoln Adim, a contestant on the new season, was convicted of indecent assault and battery stemming from an incident that took place in 2016.
Law enforcement sources in Suffolk County, NY tell TMZ Lincoln Adim was convicted of indecent assault and battery on May 21 from an incident that occurred in 2016. Adim was accused of groping and assaulting a woman on a cruise that year.
Crazy enough, his sentence was handed down right before the new season aired on May 28. Adim was sentenced to a year behind bars, with that term being suspended for a two-year probationary period. He also has to stay away from the victim, and attend 3 AA meetings per week for those 2 years.
If he doesn’t comply with the judge’s terms, he’d have to serve out a year in jail. If he does … he can avoid that. Oh, and he’s also expected to register as a sex offender.
According to law enforcement, Lincoln grabbed the woman’s hands and placed them on his own chest and stomach. He then allegedly groped her breasts and grinded up on the woman.
