During the hearing, investigators presented testimony detaining Duggar's alleged child porn collection. An officer from the Department of Homeland Security said Duggar possessed over 200 images of naked minors and child sex abuse material. The children in the images were as young as 5 years old. 

Duggar pleaded with the court to let him out of prison while he awaits trial. He says he hasn't fled the state despite knowing he was under investigation since November 2019. At the time, federal agents executed a search warrant at Duggar's workplace. The agents claim he asked if they were looking for child pornography. 

The reality star also admitted to knowing a TOR browser was on his computer which allowed access to the dark web.

The court told Duggar he will not be able to see his six children unless Anna agrees to let him near them. His wife didn't have any problems letting Duggar continue living with their children despite the investigation that lead to his arrest being launched in 2019. 

In the weeks before his arrest, Duggar's sisters allowed their children to be around him at his house during a gender reveal party. The family reportedly told federal agents Duggar suffered from porn addiction

Duggar's lawyers seem ready to fight the entire case. They have already started accusing agents of possibly violating his constitutional rights during the search of his property.
