One of Becca Kufrin’s suitors isn’t who he seems! RadarOnline.com has discovered that Lincoln Adim, a contestant on this season of The Bachelorette, was convicted of indecent assault and battery just one week before the show premiered.
In May 2016, Lincoln groped a woman on a harbor cruise ship. He was officially convicted on May 21, 2017, and was sentenced to one year in a house of correction, with that term suspended for a two-year probationary period.
According to a statement from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, “The judge ordered him to stay away from the victim and attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week during those two years.”
“If he complies with the judge’s orders, he will not have to serve out his term, but if he fails to comply with those orders or re-offends, he could be ordered to serve out the year behind bars. By law, he is expected to register as a sex offender,” the statement read.
Adam is not the first of Becca’s contestants to face scandal outside the show. Garrett Yrigoyen, who got the first impression rose in the first episode, was caught liking “hurtful and offensive” images on Instagram.
He later apologized for the likes and even deleted his Instagram and started a new account. “I do not want my social media to define who I am, and I will take better care moving forward to support all walks of life. Again, I sincerely apologize and am sorry for any hurt, damage, or offense I may have caused,” he said in a statement.
