(JustPatriots.com)- Josh Duggar, the 33-year-old star of the “19 Kids and Counting” TV show won’t be allowed to see his children or return to his home in Arkansas if he is released on bail, according to a press release from the United States Attorney’s Office. The TV star was arrested and faces charges relating to receiving and possessing child pornography.
Duggar pleaded not guilty to those charges on Friday, but U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Erin L. Wiedemann said that if he is granted bail he would need to find a residence where there are no children.
Duggar, therefore, won’t be able to return home to his property where he lives with six children, and his wife Anna.
He will go to trial on July 6 and a pre-trial hearing will take place on July 1.
“Given the nature of the charges against him, the court would likely require a third-party custodian that he could reside with and that would ensure compliance with conditions of bond so you all would need to get that line out and inform our probation office of who that person is so they could interview that person,” Wiedemann said.
The horrifying news of the allegations against Duggar shocked viewers of the popular show regularly tune in to see what life is like living with a large family. Duggar is accused of downloading photographs and videos of child sexual abuse, and he is alleged to have possessed the illegal material in May of 2019. The illegal content allegedly included photographs and videos of children under the age of 12.
If he’s convicted, Duggar is looking at fines of up to $250,000 and 20 years in prison for every count.
Incredibly, some left-wing activists have tried to tar Republicans with Duggar’s alleged criminality, with journalist Parker Molloy showing photographs of the TV star taking selfies with Republican politicians and implying that it was inevitable it would happen.
“Of COURSE he was charged with possession of child porn because he’s a total creep,” Molloy wrote.

Since when does it “sound right” for a Christian conservative to do such a horrific thing? Democrats will say anything.
