Josh faces up to 40 years in prison after being found guilty on one count of receiving and one count of possessing content depicting the sexual abuse of children.

The judge in his criminal case said the Counting On star's sentencing could take up to four months to hand down.

During the trial, the prosecutor showed the jury "images of children, some as young as 7" being "sexually assaulted, violated and exploited" on Josh's computer. He also had one movie file of 7-to-9-year-old girls being "sexually assaulted, violated and exploited," and another video of a "three-month-old being sexually abused and tortured."

Josh and Anna share 7 children with their youngest being a one-month-old girl.

Josh's wife ran out of court, visibly upset before the photos of children were presented. That wasn't the only time that she ditched him amid the stomach-turning allegations.

Days later, she rushed out of the courtroom again when it was revealed he used the family's Instagram password to access child pornography.

He will remain in custody until his sentencing.
