Could Josh Duggar be facing bigger legal troubles than he first realized? New court papers show that his past may be brought up during his upcoming trial in a different case. Read on to get the latest details.

For those who don’t know, Josh was arrested in April for receiving and possessing child pornography. The downloads were traced back to his electronic devices at the car lot he worked at. His IP address wasn’t blocked, allowing investigators to locate him easily. The investigation began over a year before he was arrested.

As details of Josh’s case have surfaced, fans and critics have wondered how his previous scandals might influence the outcome of this case. For those who don’t know, Josh molested several girls when he was a teenager.

However, until this point, it wasn’t known whether his molestation scandal would be shared with the jury. Now, it looks like prosecutors are trying to bring up these details during the November 30 trial.

Prosecutors Want To Bring Up Josh Duggar’s Past

In court documents obtained by Radar Onlinethe prosecution is attempting to inform the jury of Josh’s past scandal. The documents state:

“The government notices its intent to introduce evidence that in approximately 2002 and 2003, before he committed the offenses charged in the indictment in this case and while living in Arkansas, the defendant attempted to and did commit a crime as defined by Arkansas state law involving contact between any part of the defendant’s body and a child’s genitals or anus—namely, s*xual assault in the second degree.”

Also according to the documents, “They plan to introduce evidence that Duggar was investigated for, admitted to, and received counseling for touching and s*xually molesting multiple minor females, including at least one instance involving the digital penetration of a prepubescent minor.”

The scandal may be used in the trial because it proves that Josh had a “motive” in accessing the explicit material on his computer. Additionally, it shows that the downloads couldn’t have been on accident. There’s a “lack of mistake,” which could drastically change the outcome.

The judge has yet to rule on this evidence. So, we will have to wait and see what happens. In the meantime, keep coming back to TV Shows Ace for more updates on Josh’s scandal.
