No phones, laptops allowed in Josh Duggar’s child porn trial

Fayetteville, ark. A federal judge has said no phones, laptops or recording devices will be allowed in next week’s child pornography trial of former reality TV star Josh Duggar.

US District Judge Timothy L. Brooks ordered the matter ahead of a trial that is set to begin Tuesday in Fayetteville, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.

Duggar, who appeared on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” was charged in April with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography.

Duggar, 33, faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000 per charge if convicted.

TLC pulled “19 Kids and Counting” in 2015 due to revelations that Duggar had molested four of his sisters and a babysitter. Duggar’s parents said he admitted to foreplay and apologized.

Meanwhile, his father, Jim Bob Duggar, announced his plans to run for a vacant state Senate seat recently. Jim Bob Duggar also made a prominent appearance on the TLC show and previously served at the Arkansas House.

The primaries in this race will be held on December 14.
