Former star of ’19 Kids and Counting’ Josh Duggar was sentenced to at least 12 years behind bars yesterday. U.S. District Judge Timothy Brooks of Arkansas, sentenced Duggar to more than 12 years in federal prison and 20 years of supervised release as well as a $10,000 fine. Duggar was also ordered to have no unsupervised contact with minors during his supervised release. Duggar was found guilty by a jury of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography in December. He is the oldest child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar whose family were the subject of the TLC show ’19 Kids and Counting’, that show was canceled in 2015 in the wake of allegations that Josh had molested girls as a teen including two of his sisters. He was never charged in relation to those allegations. Duggar shares seven children with his wife Anna.
