Reality Steve and Bachelor alum Ashley Spivey first reported that Adim, who is still on the current season of The Bachelorette through four episodes, was convicted of a serious crime in Boston that may result in him having to register as a sex offender. Spivey received the following statement from the Suffolk County District Attorney's office: "Mr. Adim was convicted on May 21, 2018 of indecent assault and battery for groping and assaulting an adult female on a harbor cruise ship early on May 30, 2016. He 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. 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."
