Josh Duggar Set to be Sentenced in Child Pornography Case

Back in December, Josh Duggar was convicted of charges related to the receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography. He will be sentenced Wednesday in Arkansas.

Duggar’s request on for a new trial was denied by the judge in the case on Tuesday.

Duggar, 34, has been awaiting sentencing while being held at the Washington County Detention Center in Arkansas.

“We appreciate the jury’s lengthy deliberations, we respect the jury’s verdict, and we intend to appeal,” defense attorneys Justin Gelfand, Ian Murphy, and Travis Story said on behalf of Duggar in December.

U.S. Attorneys handled prosecution.

“This case represents a significant milestone for the Western District of Arkansas and our continued efforts to combat child abuse. Those who would say that children who were photographed and videoed in a manner similar to the evidence in this case are not abused and are not victims are clearly wrong. Children who are photographed and videoed in manners such as this are the victims and every time their videos and photos are traded online, uploaded, and downloaded from the internet, they are victimized again,” one of the U.S. attorneys said.

Amy King, Duggar’s cousin, took to Twitter to comment on the verdict.

“Justice has been served,” she Tweeted. “May the juror’s and Judge Brooks seek healing / counseling from all that was exposed to them,” her statement on Twitter began. May the children grow up with real Godly men as father figures who will guide and protect them. May the people who were once in disbelief have their eyes opened for the first time.”
