Embattled former reality star Josh Duggar reportedly had more than 200 images of child pornography on his computer, according to federal authorities.
Authorities arrested Duggar last week and charged him with possession of child pornography.
He had pleaded not guilty.
What are the details?
People magazine on Wednesday reported that a Homeland Security agent accused Duggar of having more than 200 child pornography-related images on his computer dating back to 2019.
According to the report, Duggar downloaded the images on his computer between May 14 and May 16, 2019.
One file, according to authorities, reportedly contained pornographic images of children ranging in age from 18 months to 12 years old.
The agent said that the images were “in the top five of the worst of the worst that [he’d] ever had to examine.”
People reported that Duggar’s computer reportedly had a porn addiction software program that sent reports to his wife, Anna, but that he had somehow reportedly bypassed the filters.
Authorities released Duggar on bail following a Wednesday hearing. He was placed with a family close to the Duggars, according to Fox News, and is only permitted to contact his children if his wife is present.
Fox also reported that Duggar was also required to surrender his passport and submit to GPS monitoring at all all times as other conditions of his bail. He is not permitted to leave his guardians’ home except for “employment, court obligations, [and] church.”
Any other locations must be pre-approved by his probation officer, Fox added.
If convicted on the charges, Duggar faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
Duggar was previously accused of sexually abusing underage minors, including four of his sisters, when he was a teenager. The Duggar family’s hit reality show, “19 Kids and Counting,” was canceled following the bombshell’s emergence in 2015.
