The Duggars who still stand by the rotten pedophile potato from HELL that is Josh Duggar are probably looking up at the sky today with a confused face because all their praying to God to free him must have been lost in translation. KARK reports that a federal jury in Fayetteville, Arkansas found 33-year-old Josh Duggar guilty of downloading and possession of materials of children being sexually abused. Each count brings a maximum of 20 years in prison, which means this throbbing zit on Satan’s ass could be locked up for 40 years. Can’t wait for the awkward silences and thrown side-eyes when wannabe Arkansas senator Jim Bob Duggar starts burping up shit about “family values” during his campaign.
In April, the eldest spawn of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar was arrested in Arkansas and charged “with receiving and possessing child pornography.” This came as the opposite of shocking to those who know Josh’s history as a child-touching piece of trash since he admitted to molesting five girls including his sister. Josh was working for the Family Research Council at the time and resigned. Before Josh was arrested, the feds confiscated his phone, computers, and laptops at both his home and his workplace, Wholesale Motorcars. During his trial, which lasted three days, James Fottrell, director of the Department of Justice’s High Technology Investigative Unit, testified that thanks to “geolocation,” they could place Josh at his computer when pictures and videos of children being abused were downloaded. Prosecutors told the jury that some of the children abused in the pictures and videos were under the age of 12. Josh’s legal team admitted that he went on the “dark web” but only to sell cars because it was easier. The jury obviously didn’t buy that cold pile of bullshit and hit him with two guilty verdicts. via People:
By the time the jury began deliberating, prosecutors and the defense had painted two totally separate portraits of Duggar: either he was a sophisticated criminal seeking out depraved content about children or he was a naive local businessman with a homeschooled GED unwittingly exploited by someone else. Jurors had to decide who to believe.
Their verdict comes about two years after Homeland Security agents first searched Duggar’s Wholesale Motorcars in 2019, seizing two personal devices and a work desktop that became key to the case.
On top of facing 20 years in the chokey for each count, he’s also facing a $250,000 fine for each count. Sentencing will happen at a later date.
Josh’s wife of 13 years, Anna Duggar, stood by him and believed he was innocent. Anna gave birth to their seventh child, a girl, just last month and they named her Madyson (an ode to Ashley Madison?!?). Their other children are 12-year-old Mackynzie, 10-year-old Michael, 8-year-old Marcus, 6-year-old Meredith, 4-year-old Mason, and 2-year-old Maryella. Anna supported Josh in court but walked out when the jury heard the dark-sided, soul-melting details of what Josh downloaded.
Since Josh will have to pay up in addition to stinking up a prison cell, the Duggars may be scrambling to get money and are running off to TLC to pitch more shows. Maybe TLC can air Josh’s sentencing hearing as a special and call it 20 Years In Prison and Counting. And I know that we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover but Josh did himself no favors with that smug mugshot. It makes me scream for an adult and I, technically, am an adult.
