After Josh Duggar was taken into custody after being found guilty on Thursday, he was reportedly placed in solitary confinement. Stick around to find out why this is and to catch up on what’s going on with the eldest Duggar son.

As we’ve reported, Josh’s child s*xual abuse material case wrapped up this week. On Thursday, he was found guilty on both counts – receiving and possessing child pornography. Now, he is waiting for his sentencing, which the judge stated will come in about four months. He’s facing up to 40 years in prison, as well as up to $500,000 in fines.

Once he’s sentenced, the former 19 Kids & Counting star will be sent to a federal facility. There are several across the country, but there is not one in Arkansas where the Duggars live. Conjugal visits are also not allowed in federal prison. So, his wife, Anna Duggar is caring for their seven children on her own now. She is reportedly “devastated” by the guilty verdict.

Other members of the family have spoken out about the conviction. Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Jessa and Ben Seewald, and Jill and Derick Dillard have shared their thoughts online.

So, why is Josh currently in solitary confinement, and what do we know about the current situation?

  1. i think that solitary confinement is good for his safety probably not for his mental health I am so shocked no psychiatric evaluation has been done on him………With what looks like for his future he should be on precautions for suicide.

  2. It was a given that he would be protected. Heaven forgive something should happen to him. lol Where were the people that should have protected the children? Feed him to the lions. lol

    1. His dad needs to have his head examined. Josh needs intensive counseling. Due to the fact he was exposed to hard porn at early age. And probably used his knowledge for self satisfaction.

  3. He has no protection from the wrath of God. What goes around comes around. He will get his just rewards in prison. Rightly so. No one would look at such sick stuff and not apply it at some point and time. His dad probably gave him access to hard porn at an early age. As sheltered as Duggar boys were. Where else would he get it?

    1. These kids had friends too. All of them being raised like the Duggars. All of them curious and possibly could have had the stuff. But also he could have gotten into porn on his own as an adult. He found the cheaters website so he probably got into this by hhimself.
      I certainly do t believe his father gave it to him and that accusation is just sick.
