What is Josh Duggar’s defense?

Josh’s defense brought in a computer forensic analyst, Michele Bush, on Tuesday. She was then questioned by the prosecution about the technological side of the case. Bush claims that there is evidence of remote access programs on the computer. However, on the days the horrific content was downloaded, there is no evidence the remote programs were used.

She went on to say that there is a possibility the data could have been deleted, which would explain why the evidence is not there.

5NEWS in Arkansas reports that “there was no trail” that could show whether the program was used.

The defense also argued that the router was not investigated. She said, “I’m not going to try to find additional evidence.” She didn’t request access to the router but claims that it holds important details about the downloaded material.

James Fottrell counter-witnessed Bush. Fottrell explained that there is no evidence of the downloads being watched remotely. He notes that the content would have had to be streamed to be watched remotely. Instead, he says that the videos were watched on the computer.

Fottrell has repeatedly stated that the router doesn’t contain any necessary information to this case. That’s why only Josh’s electronic devices were taken in the investigation, rather than the router as well.
