Supreme Court rejects Josh Duggar child pornography appeal

Supreme Court denies Josh Duggar's appeal, upholding his child pornography conviction. Reality TV star to remain in prison until 2032.

The Supreme Court has made a final decision in the case involving Josh Duggar and his child pornography charges. Despite his appeal, the highest court in the United States has denied his request for a new trial, upholding his original sentencing from May 2022.

Josh Duggar, who gained fame on the reality show "19 Kids and Counting," was arrested in April 2021 and later found guilty of receiving and possessing child pornography. He was sentenced to 12 1/2 years in prison, a $10,000 fine, and mandated to attend a sex offense-specific treatment program.

The investigation into Duggar began after child porn files were discovered on a computer linked to him. Evidence presented in court showed images of child sexual abuse, including toddlers, downloaded onto a computer at a car dealership owned by Duggar.

Despite maintaining his innocence, Duggar's appeal was denied by the Supreme Court. The court stated that there was no dispute that child pornography was downloaded to a computer at Duggar's business, and that the lower court was justified in rejecting testimony from a former employee.

As a result, Josh Duggar will remain in prison until his sentence is completed in 2032. His legal troubles began with revelations of molesting his sisters and a babysitter as a teenager, followed by a public apology for cheating on his wife and admitting to a pornography addiction.

The cancellation of the Duggar family's reality shows, including "19 Kids and Counting" and "Counting On," came after Josh's arrest in 2021. Despite his family's fame and religious background, Josh Duggar's legal issues have overshadowed their public image.
