Bachelorette’ Producers Claim They Were Unaware Contestant Lincoln Adim Was Charged With Assault

The Press Secretary of the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, Jake Wark, told People that he groped an adult female and was sentenced to one year in a house of correction, "with that term suspended for a two-year probationary period".

HollywoodLife has confirmed that Lincoln Adim, who is now competing on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette, was convicted of indecent assault and battery in Boston, Mass. on May 21 - just days before the show premiered.

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 news was first reported by Reality Steve and former Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey.

Lincoln Adim, who now appears on Becca Kufrin's season, was found guilty on May 21 of "indecent assault and battery for groping and assaulting an adult female on a harbor cruise ship" back on May 30, 2016, Press Secretary Jake Wark of the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office told Fox News in a statement.

"The judge ordered him to stay away from the victim and attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week during those two years", Wark said. If he fails to comply with the terms, he could be ordered to serve his term behind bars.

Production company Warner Bros. and network ABC declined to comment in response an inquiry about how the pending charge got missed during the casting process.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
