NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP/WTNH) — A former home remodeling show personality convicted of molesting a 10-year-old girl at his Connecticut home has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Christopher Dionne, 37, was sentenced Wednesday in a New London court.
He must also serve 10 years of probation after being released and register as a sex offender.
Dionne appeared on an episode of HGTV’s “Family Flip.” Production of his new show, A&E’s “House Rescue,” was suspended after his arrest last year.
Prosecutors said Dionne inappropriately touched his daughter’s best friend in November 2017. Dionne maintains his innocence and intends to appeal.
