Lincoln Adim is still competing for Becca Kufrin’s heart on The Bachelorette, even though details of his past are starting to surface.
The ABC producers who are responsible for looking through the contestants’ pasts are currently facing criticisms for letting Adim slip through the cracks. As it turns out, Adim was accused of assaulting a woman back in May 2016. In addition to that, he was actually convicted of the offense just as The Bachelorette was about to air. This wasn’t something that he had tried to hide from his past and move on from. This was something that happened within two years, and his sentencing was happened whilst he was on television.
According to TMZ, he was convicted last month of indecent assault and battery on a woman. If the producers knew of his past, they would probably have skipped over him during the casting process. Since the news of the conviction has just surfaced this week, all of the details aren’t known. But here’s what we do know about this The Bachelorette contestant.
Lincoln has been convicted of what is considered a sex crime. The incident in question happened on a ship called Spirit of Boston. During the alleged incident, he grabbed a woman’s hands and placed them on his own chest and stomach.
Adim supposedly lied about his past, as he didn’t mention anything to the producers when he was cast for the show. However, just a month ago, he was sentenced to a year in prison. However, the term would be suspended for a probation period of two years. He can’t approach the victim and he has to attend at least 3 AA meetings per week for the full two years, according to TMZ. Lincoln Admin will go to jail if he can’t uphold the conditions of his sentence. On top of it all, he has to register as a sex offender.
What do you think of Lincoln Adim lying to producers about what happened? Do you think production needs to take responsibility?
