Christopher Dionne, a former HGTV host, has been found guilty of molesting his 10-year old daughter's best friend. As Fox News reports:

Christopher Dionne, a former host of an HGTV remodeling pilot, has been found guilty of molesting a 10-year-old girl in his Connecticut home, according to a report.

A New London Superior Court official told People magazine that Dionne, 37, was convicted of risk of injury to a minor and fourth-degree sexual assault on Wednesday...

According to People, Dionne's victim -- who is now 12 -- testified during the trial that she was best friends with Dionne's daughter at the time of the assault. Per the outlet, "she and Dionne's daughter were on the same soccer team and had regular sleepovers at each other's houses."

Per People -- citing the arrest warrant application -- Dionne's victim claimed that in November 2017, she was at a birthday sleepover at his home when he inappropriately touched her -- waking her up in the early hours of the morning by placing his hand against her buttocks inside her pajamas.


Dionne is expected to be released on 100,000 dollars bail and be sentenced in December.
