A contestant on the current season of The Bachelorette was convicted of indecent assault and battery on May 21.

Lincoln Adim, who got upset on a group date in the second episode of the hit reality show, was charged in 2016 for groping a woman on a harbor cruise ship, according to Vulture. The incident took place May 30, 2016. 

Adim was sentenced to live in a house of correction for one year with a two-year probationary sentence. In those two years, Adim has to attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week and is to stay away from the victim. 

The conviction opens up holes in the show’s background checks into its contestants. Before the season began, it was revealed Garrett, the man who got the first impression rose, liked offensive posts on Instagram. Similar social media findings arose during Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette with Lee Garrett.  

Adim is still vying for bachelorette Becca Kufrin’s heart on the season.
