Just when I thought I’d never see Josh Duggar’s name again.

From NBC Washington:

Josh Duggar, the former reality TV star from TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” has been charged by indictment in Arkansas for receipt and possession of child pornography.

A release from the United States Attorney’s Office of the Western District of Arkansas stated Duggar “allegedly used the internet to download child sexual abuse material.”

“One stipulation Judge Wiedermann requested is for Duggar to have a third-party custodian should he be released on bond,” KNWA, a local news broadcaster in Northwest Arkansas, reported. “Also, the residence where he would stay must be devoid of minor children.”

If convicted, Duggar faces up to 20 years of imprisonment and fines up to $250,000 on each count.

Note: Josh Duggar and his wife, Anna, have six children and are currently expecting their seventh.

“19 Kids and Counting” was cancelled in 2015 amid the revelations that Josh had molested four of his sisters and a babysitter.

Duggar issued a public statement at the time apologizing, but he wasn’t done yet.

A year later internet sleuths discovered he had an Ashley Madison account where folks apparently hook up for sex while cheating on their spouses.

And this was all while he espoused holier-than-thou Christian platitudes.
