Joshua James Duggar is an American convicted sex offender and former reality television personality who eldest of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s nineteen children. He and his family gained fame as the focus of the TLC series 19 Kids and Counting, spun off from a series of television specials.

He served as the executive director of FRC Action, a lobbying political action committee sponsored by the Family Research Council, from June 2013 to May 2015. Duggar resigned from the position after he was reported to have molested multiple underage girls, including four of his siblings, when he was aged between 12 and 15.

These revelations immediately led to the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting on July 16, 2015. The consequent fallout was named one of the “10 Big Scandals of 2015” by USA Today, and The Washington Post listed Joshua Duggar as one of the fifteen most hated people on the Internet for that year.

On April 29, 2021, Joshua was arrested by U.S. Marshals on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography. He was found guilty on all charges on December 9, 2021, and was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison on May 25, 2022.

On May 25, 2022, Joshua Duggar was sentenced to 12 years and seven months in prison. His earliest possible release is on October 2, 2032. This will then be followed by 20 years of supervised release, during which he must register as a sex offender and can have no unsupervised contact with minors, including his own children.

Duggar can only access the Internet with the permission of his probation officer, and must agree to monitoring of his online activity. He was also fined $10,000 and ordered to pay an additional $40,100 in special assessments. Duggar had faced up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for each of the two counts.

He is reportedly incarcerated at FCI Seagoville federal prison.
