Josh Duggar To Spend Christmas Alone In His Cell, Will Be Served Bread, Margarine And Fried Potatoes Following His Guilty Verdict
Josh Duggar will celebrate Christmas very differently this year after being found guilty on the charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.
The former TLC star reportedly will be served with simple dishes to celebrate the occasion alone in solitary confinement.
According to The Sun, an insider from the Washington County Detention Center in Arkansas revealed officers will provide Josh with "a little special something. It won't be big, but it'll be a little something different" during the Christmas week.
The menu is still in the works, but Josh will reportedly have the meals by himself without any company.
"People in solitary do not get to eat with others," the source claimed. "They get served alone in their cell, but they get the same food everyone else does."
The informant also shared a food list on the inmates' menu around the holiday season.
"This morning, they had oatmeal with butter and sugar, a sausage patty, homemade fried potatoes, bread, and margarine," the source added.
Meanwhile, the inmates were only given one choice of orange-flavored fortified drink as a beverage. And as for lunch, Josh and the other prisoners were able to indulge in hamburgers.
The source told the outlet, Josh would have turkey and rice casserole and green beans with bread and margarine for dinner.
RadarOnline.com reported last week, Duggar has been allegedly placed in solitary confinement for "safety reasons" while waiting for sentencing. The convicted sex offender allegedly "has his own small cell and is away from other criminals."
The insider said, "Josh is cordoned off from the general population. He is in a holding cell by himself. We do this for every sex offender. We are holding him separately for his own safety."
The father of seven was taken into custody last Thursday following his conviction on one count of receiving and one count of possessing content depicting the sexual abuse of children.
Judge Timothy L. Brooks, who presided over the case, advised the court that his arrest is "mandatory" ahead of his sentencing.
"Mr. Duggar 100 percent has been compliant awaiting trial," Brooks explained. "I appreciate that, and I wanted to acknowledge that. However, because of the guilty offense, he must be detained regardless of flight risk, so there will be a mandatory detention. The marshalls will set that up."

In April 2019, Duggar was arrested by the FBI after the agents raided his workplace, a now-closed used car dealership, and seized several of his electronic devices.
Prosecutors later found him to have downloaded 65 images of underage kids as young as three months old being "sexually assaulted, violated, and exploited."
According to officials, he could face up to 40 years in prison following his guilty verdict.
However, Josh isn't the only Duggar family member that has had trouble involving children. His younger sister, Jana, was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor in September.
She recently spoke out regarding the incident explaining the situation. Jana pleaded not guilty to the charge and is expected to appear in court next month.
