What We Know About Josh Duggar’s Prison Sentence


- Advertisment -

Josh Duggar, the 34-year-old disgraced member of the former reality TV family, has been sentenced for his charges of possessing child sexual abuse material. While he faced up to 20 years for the crimes he committed, he was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison (via In Touch Weekly). His legal council has made it clear that they plan to appeal the decision.

During the trial, Duggar was convicted on two charges of knowingly receiving and possessing child sexual abuse material. However, his sentencing will not reflect this, as Judge Timothy L. Brooks chose to drop the second count against him (via People). The judge also recommended Duggar spend time at a treatment center for sexual offenders. However, doing so is optional.

While several of Duggar’s siblings, including Jill Dillard and Jinger Vuolo, have spoken out in support of their brother’s verdict (per Showbiz Cheat Sheet), his wife Anna Duggar and parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stood behind him with support throughout his trial (via USA Today).

If you or anyone you know has been a victim of sexual assault, help is available. Visit the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network website or contact RAINN’s National Helpline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).
