A trial begins next week for a TV personality accused of molesting a child of 10 years of age.
The 37 year old male, from Old Lyme – Connecticut, was suspended following his arrest in January 2018.
Christopher Dionne denies the allegations against him of asking a 10 year old girl if she wanted to see his penis, along with allegedly touching the girl’s chest whilst she was sleeping over following a birthday party.
Dionne of HGTV pilot show fame ‘Family Flip’, said that the 10 year old rubbed his stomach with her hand and he told her it was inappropriate. He was working on the A&E show ‘House Rescue’ when he turned himself in to police on charges of sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.
A&E has said that it has suspended production of the yet to air show ‘House Rescue’.
Even if a person is innocent, he or she should always take allegations and charges of sexual assault and risk of injury to minor’s very seriously.
