Former 16 & Pregnant star Zakariah Hegab, 20, is in a Texas jail on charges including aggravated sexual assault against a child, can reveal.

His bail is set for a whopping $40,000.

According to Texas law, sexual assault is often considered aggravated if the minor is younger than 14 years old.

Since the victim is a child, all other details related to the case are sealed, a court clerk tells Radar.

Meanwhile, as Radar reported, Josh Duggar, 27, confessed to fondling five female minors, including little sisters Jill, 23, and Jessa, 22, when he was a teen.

Despite admitting his misdeeds, the disgraced Duggar walked away punishment-free because state trooper Joseph Hutchens failed to report the confession to his superiors.

When Duggar was investigated three years later following a new anonymous tip to a child abuse hotline, the statute of limitations had run out.
