Duggar fans 'disgusted' after Josh's attorneys make request about PORN just moments after he's sentenced to prison

DUGGAR fans have been left in shock after hearing Josh's attorney's "disgusting" request in the moments after he was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

The father-of-seven was convicted on child pornography charges in December 2021.


As part of Josh's punishment for his crimes, he has to participate in sex offender treatment and cannot access or view any kind of pornography.

Josh is forbidden from owning a computer or electronic devices capable of storing pornographic content or with access to the internet without his probation officer's approval and internet-monitoring software must be installed on any such devices.

He also has to undergo regular polygraph testing.

Josh's legal team objected to the adult pornography ban and the polygraphs, but Judge Timothy L. Brooks, who presided over the hearing, overruled both objections.

Fans were shocked by the brazen display from the Counting On alum's lawyers.

"Yet Anna still won't leave him," One Reddit user commented on a thread related to the jaw-dropping moment.

"He such a good Christian crying because he's banned from porn."

Another shocked critic wrote: "Imagine that? THIS is what they're worried about. He hasn't even been assigned to a prison yet and he's already thinking about porn when he gets out. Not his kids, not his family, not where he will find gainful employment, nope he's focused on….PORN."

A third Redditor wrote: "Probably know how he will not give that up because he’s legitimately addicted, so they know that increases his likelihood to violate his probation"

JOSH'S PUNISHMENT

On Wednesday, Josh was sentenced to more than 12 years – 151 months – in federal prison.

The sentencing came months after he was found guilty of possessing and receiving child pornography.

In addition to prison time, Josh was ordered to pay fines and special assessments totaling $50,100.

While he read his decision, the judge called Josh's crimes "the sickest of the sick."

Josh's legal team went into court that day seeking a lighter sentence of roughly five years in prison.

The prosecution, meanwhile, was seeking the maximum sentence, which is 20 years.

Josh will continue to face the repercussions of his alleged actions after he gets out of prison.

He was sentenced to 20 years of probation and will be prohibited from any unsupervised contact with minors, including his own children.

Josh will be subject to random searches and cannot obtain a medical marijuana card.

He will have to submit to random polygraph testing, up to his probation officer's discretion.

His father, Jim Bob Duggar, wife Anna Duggar, and siblings Joy-Anna Duggar and Jason Duggar were present in court on the day of his sentencing.

DIVORCE DILEMMA

Josh's cousin Amy Duggar has made several public pleas to Anna to leave her disgraced husband.

Her latest came after his punishment was handed down by the court.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Amy, 35, pleaded with her cousin-in-law to divorce the convicted felon. 

Amy told The Sun: “There could be a better life. I heard a quote, ‘Your first love might have been a great love, but it might not be your best love.’ 

“There could be a whole other life for her that she could have if she could see how dark and evil Josh truly is. She’s delusional.”

Amy even opened her home to Anna and the seven young children she shares with Josh, adding: “We have room here! We can make bunk beds. We can do whatever it is to help. You have to ask for it, you have to reach out. We’ve tried.”

The Thirty1Thirty clothing owner revealed the last time she spoke to Anna was in November, as she “acted like nothing was wrong.”

Amy blamed the family's Institute in Basic Life Principles religion for Anna’s decision to stick by her husband's side, as she explained: “Once you’re in IBLP you’re brainwashed into believing whatever your husband tells you or someone you respect tells you. 

“It’s an umbrella of protection is what they call it. Your husband is over you and you trust them no matter what. You never ask questions and you never think for yourself. You’re not allowed to. You’re not supposed to.”

ANNA FLEES

Anna was seen fleeing the courtroom in a hurry after the judge announced his decision.

The Sun exclusively obtained photos and video footage of Anna storming off, fighting back emotions.

She wore a black mask and blue dress as she made her way out of the courthouse.

Anna appeared sullen following the news.

She made no comment about her husband or the situation.

The judge held nothing back as he delivered Josh's sentence.

He said to the Arkansas native: "You have done some very bad things. But in your life as a whole, you've done good things…The true test of a man's character is what a man does when no one is watching."

Referring to Josh's insistence that he's innocent, the judge went on: "I find it aggravating about the lack of responsibility."
