Ex-Reality Star Josh Duggar to be Sentenced in Prison for Receiving and Possessing Child Porn

19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar is to be sentenced to prison for receiving and possessing child pornography. The 34-year-old star was arrested in April 2021 after a Little Rock police detective found child porn files were being shared by Duggar’s computer. Read on to learn more.

Graphic Images of Sexual Abuse…

Former reality TV star Josh Duggar will return to federal court on Wednesday, where a judge could sentence him to up to 20 years in prison for receiving and possessing child pornography.

Prosecutors are asking for a maximum sentence for Duggar. His lawyers have asked the court in Fayetteville to send him to prison for five years. If you remember, Duggar was arrested last year after a Little Rock police detective found child porn files were being shared by his computers.

Investigators also testified that these images depicting the sexual abuse of children, including toddlers, were downloaded in 2019 onto a computer at a car dealership Duggar owned.

An Alarming Window…

Josh Duggar’s past behaviour provides an alarming window into the extent of his sexual interest in children that the Court should consider at sentencing, federal prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memorandum.

In 2015 TLC cancelled Kids and Counting after Duggar faced allegations that he molested four of his sisters and a babysitter a few years ago. Authorities began investigating the abuse in 2006 after receiving a tip from a family friend but concluded that the statute of limitations on any possible charges had expired.

His parents previously stated that Duggar had confessed to the fondling and apologised. After the allegations resurfaced in 2015, Duggar apologised publicly for unspecified behaviour and resigned as a lobbyist for the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group.

Experts revealed that the 34-year-old’s computer had been partitioned to evade accountability software that had been installed to report to his wife activity such as porn searches.

Prosecutors noted that Duggar’s computer had been partitioned to evade accountability software that had been installed to report to his wife activity such as porn searches, according to experts.

Prosecutors have also written that the reality star will never take the steps necessary to change this pattern of behaviour and address his predilection for minor females. Duggar, on the other hand, maintains that he’s innocent and that he intends to appeal, his attorneys wrote in their sentencing memorandum.

Duggar accepts that he is before this Court for sentencing and that this Court must impose a penalty, his attorneys wrote. That is justice. But Duggar also appeals to this Court’s discretion to temper that justice with mercy. What do you think should happen today? Duggar needs to be severely punished for his acts. Isn’t it?
