The former reality show star was formally charged with two counts of receipt and possession of child pornography. He pleaded not guilty.

Josh had previously asked the judge to release him from jail so that he could take care of his pregnant wife, arguing he was not a flight risk for several reasons including being too famous.

Duggar is being accused of downloading child sexual abuse material – some of which allegedly showed children under the age of 12 – in May 2019. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines on each count

This is not, however, Josh's first offense as it pertains to inappropriate behavior involving children.

In 2015, Duggar was investigated by the Springdale Police Department regarding allegations that he molested five girls who were minors – including four of his sisters and a babysitter – when he was 14 years old.
