Christopher Dionne, the host of several home improvement shows, has recently been arrested and charged with child molestation. The individual allegedly assaulted a 10-year-old girl back in November in his house. Dionne denied the allegations and declared that the girl attempted to touch him in an inappropriate manner.
Home Improvement Host Took Photos of Naked Child
According to the man’s affidavit, the events which prompted his arrest reportedly took place in December 2017 in Dionne’s Connecticut home. The victim, a 10-year-old, told the authorities that while in the living room, the former home improvement host groped her behind and her breasts.
At one point, the girl said, that Dionne asked her to touch his penis. The 10-year-old ended her statement by saying that the host asked her to get undressed so that he could take pictures of her breasts.
Dionne was arrested on Monday and charged with child molestation. During his police interview, when confronted with the allegations, Dionne denied ever inappropriately touching the girl and told the officers that the girl was the one who started groping him.
Moreover, the man declared that on the night of the alleged sexual assault, the 10-year-old came up to him and put her arms around his waist. The man recalled feeling uncomfortable and asked the girl to cease, as this is something for adults only.
Still, the evidence against the formed home improvement host seems to be overwhelming, as the girl declared that this wasn’t the first time Dionne assaulted her, a similar incident occurring in November.
For the time being, Dionne has been booked into the county jail and charged with risk of injury to a minor and fourth-degree sexual assault. At the moment, it’s not clear if the man hired an attorney.
