Since Josh Duggar’s April arrest, more information has been released, adding to the story. He was arrested for receiving and possessing child pornography. Over the past few months, as his November 30 trial is approaching, more details have surfaced.
This week, court documents revealed several important pieces of information in the child pornography scandal, including his witnesses. The government has filed several motions, which will need to be approved by the judge. If the judge approves these motions, the information can be disclosed to the jury during the trial. The government recently filed a motion to have Josh forfeit one of his computers. We also learned that his molestation scandal could be used against him to show that he had a “motive” to download the explicit material. This would prove there was a “lack of accident.”
As we reported Thursday, Josh previously admitted to having a pornography addiction. This could be used against him during his trial as well.
Now, information naming Josh’s witnesses has been released.
Who Are Josh Duggar’s Witnesses?
In court documents released Wednesday, Josh’s three witnesses were listed. They include William Mize, Joshua Williams, and Randall Berry. The document notes that they had “access to Wholesale Motors,” the car lot Josh worked at. They aren’t necessarily people who saw Josh commit the alleged crime of downloading the explicit material on his devices. However, they are witnesses because they also had access to the devices that the material was found on.
Fans may recall reports that Josh and his dad, Jim Bob Duggar, attempted to place the blame on an ex-convict who was working with him at the car lot.
The government previously ordered Josh to provide an alibi and witnesses in his case. The court order stated that the Duggar son must supply “any intended alibi defense and that such notice include each specific place where the Defendant claims to have been at the time of the alleged offense.”
He needed an alibi “on or about May 14, 2019 through May 16, 2019, between approximately 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. each day at Wholesale Motors in Tontitown, Arkansas.”
The court needed the names and contact information for any alibi witnesses Josh provided.
