Josh Duggar, Sentenced to More Than 12 Years in Federal Prison on Pornography Charges

The Duggars in better times

Judge Timothy L. Brooks (Obama) sentenced the former reality TV star in the Western District of Arkansas Federal Court in Fayetteville on the morning of May 25. Duggar was sentenced to 151 months in total. 

Duggar was arrested on April 29, 2021. Federal agents had executed a search warrant at Wholesale Motorcars, Duggar’s place of employment, on November 20, 2019. They seized multiple electronic devices and pieces of evidence, including one video file that Special Agent Gerald Faulkner called “in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine.”

From 2008 to 2015, Mr. Duggar and his siblings starred with their parents in “19 Kids and Counting,” a reality show following the family’s life in Arkansas. TLC canceled the show after In Touch Weekly reported on a 2006 police report that said Mr. Duggar had molested several girls when he was a teenager.

Mr. Duggar, 34, who is married with seven children, downloaded around 600 photographs and seven videos of violent child sexual abuse, according to a sentencing memorandum filed this month by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Arkansas.

He was caught after a Little Rock police detective found an I.P. address that had been sharing child sexual abuse material, according to a memorandum opinion filed by Judge Timothy L. Brooks in August 2021. The detective sent the information to an agent from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security who later tracked the I.P. address to Mr. Duggar, Judge Brooks wrote.
