“The Bachelorette” Contestant Lincoln Adim Was Found Guilty of Indecent Assault and Battery Days Before the Season Premiere


There’s already been a handful of drama with the fellas on Becca Kufrin’s season of “The Bachelorette,” but Lincoln’s drama is out-of-this-world crazy.

For a refresher, Lincoln is the guy who won the first group date event with Becca and got that creepy picture of them together that he was obsessed with. Connor then threw said picture into the pool and Lincoln tattled to Becca. But, I digress. 

According to People, Lincoln was found guilty of indecent assault and battery on May 21 while on a cruise ship. 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.” 

“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 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.”

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.
