The star of reality Josh Duggar was seen in Arkansas prison after he was arrested on charges of child pornography.
After he was arrested because he had taken and owned child porn, Josh Duggar faces up to twenty years in prison. The 33-year-old 19 Kids and Counting Star, booked on 29 April, is showed in a new footage inside the Arkansas prison. He was arrested in Springdale, Arkansas after pleading he was not guilty of the federal charges at a virtual court hearing on April 30. The video, published by the sheriff’s office in Washington County, shows that the TV star is actually entering into a room with its handcuffed legs in a white tee and jeans.
He was arrested for allegedly downloading pornography for children under the age of 12 who have not been found to be guilty of sexual abuse. Josh remains behind bars, however, and will face a detention hearing on the 5th of May that will decide if he will be released during the trial.
Attorney Bobby Digby told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that he could be facing up to 20 years behind bars. “He’s facing up to 40 years in a federal prison, 20 years on each count, and up to $250,000 in fines on each count,” Arkansas defense attorney Digby explained. “Anything is possible, but typically they’d be concurrent sentences, which would mean he’s looking at up to 20 years.”
“In the federal system, if he is convicted and sentenced to the Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, he would serve about 86% of any sentence he would receive, before he was eligible for release,” he continued. “In the federal system they don’t call it parole, they call it supervised release, but it’s essentially parole. So there’d be sex offender registration, all kinds of stuff like that.”
After admitted that he was annoyed by four of his sisters, Josh, the father of six children with wife Anna Duggar was already in news. Josh showed in 2015 when he was a teenager he bothered his siblings. In 2003, his actions were admitted by his dad Jim Bob Duggar, who had sent him to a priest’s camp. In August 2015, after confessing to a serious pornographic addiction, he entered rehabilitation for a stay of six months.
