I Don’t Expect Much To Happen: Josh Duggar, guilty of possessing child pornography


You remember Josh Duggar.

The “quiverful” fundy xian who sexually assaulted his sisters.

The clod caught up in the Ashley Madison scandal.

The one who cheated on his wife, and she was forced by the cult to “forgive him”, as if it were her failing.

He has now been found guilty of possessing child pornography.

Given that he’s a white male, a cisgender heterosexual, a fundamentalist christian, you can be sure he’ll get a light sentence.   They always do – the pale and male, the white and right, the pastors and pederasts.  They are always given the “benefit of the doubt” no matter what sort of crimes they commit, something that a Global Majority person or an LGBTQIA person would never get.

Josh Duggar found guilty in child sex abuse image trial

Former reality TV star Josh Duggar was convicted Thursday of downloading and possessing child sex abuse images on his work computer.

A federal jury in Fayetteville, Arkansas, found the 33-year-old Duggar guilty on one count each of receiving and possessing child pornography. He faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000 for each count when he’s sentenced at a later date.

“We appreciate the jury’s lengthy deliberations, we respect the jury’s verdict, and we intend to appeal,” Duggar’s legal team said in a statement to NBC News following the verdict.

Duggar pleaded not guilty to federal charges of receiving and possessing child pornography in Arkansas back in April. Federal prosecutors contended that Duggar downloaded a Linux partition on the laptop in order to circumvent a computer software that monitors internet use.

Evidence presented to the court included logs of Duggar’s internet usage, which included downloading the images, sending personal messages, and saving pictures.

Defense attorneys for Duggar denied the allegations during trial, saying someone else downloaded the images and that Duggar’s own personal devices were clear of any illicit material.

In the second week of his trial, Duggar’s family friend Bobye Holt testified that he confessed to molesting underage girls during a conversation in 2003, according to NBC affiliate KNWA.

Bobye Holt told the court Duggar had informed them that he touched multiple girls under their pants and underwear, according to KNWA.

    You remember Josh Duggar.

    I don’t think I have ever heard of him before. I would have been happy not to (i.e that he was a decent human being) but let’s hope for some justice.

    You left out tied to wealth and politically connected, those are absolutely critical to his likely getting a light sentence.

    You can see why in where the response comes from. His legal team, not his lawyer. He has enough money backing him to have an entire squad of lawyers but he is such scum that none of them is willing to put their name on it.
