Details: A release from the United States Attorney’s Office of the Western District of Arkansas stated Duggar “allegedly used the internet to download child sexual abuse material.” The release said that “Duggar allegedly possessed this material, some of which depicts the sexual abuse of children under the age of 12, in May 2019.” Duggar pleaded not guilty. He had his first appearance in court via Zoom on Friday morning, after being arrested in northwest Arkansas Thursday by federal authorities.
“One stipulation Judge Wiedermann requested is for Duggar to have a third-party custodian should he be released on bond,” KNWA, a local news broadcaster in Northwest Arkansas, reported. “Also, the residence where he would stay must be devoid of minor children.”
If convicted, Duggar faces up to 20 years of imprisonment and fines up to $250,000 on each count.
…..Duggar was held at the Washington County jail after being arrested Thursday afternoon by U.S. marshals, according to the jail website. Late Thursday, a representative from Washington County Sheriff’s office told TODAY that Duggar was being held for another agency with no bond.
