SCOTUS Refuses to Hear Appeal of Reality Star Josh Duggar’s Conviction for Crimes Against Children

The United States Supreme Court has refused to hear reality star Josh Duggar’s appeal against his recent conviction for crimes against children.

On Monday, the SCOTUS declined to hear Duggar’s appeal of his child pornography conviction.

The court announced it was denying Duggar’s petition for certiorari in its Monday order list.

In December 2021, the former reality star was sentenced to 12 years in prison for the horrific crimes.

He had sought to overturn his prison sentence by appealing through the high court.

However, he is now expected to remain in prison until 2032.

A federal jury in Arkansas found 36-year-old Duggar guilty.

He was convicted on charges related to the receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

In May 2022, he was sentenced to 151 months in prison.

Duggar was later transferred from Washington County Jail in his home state of Arkansas to FCI Seagoville in Texas.

Federal authorities investigated him after Little Rock Police detectives found child sexual abuse material was being shared by a computer traced to him.

Investigators testified that images depicting the sexual abuse of children, including toddlers, were downloaded in 2019 onto a computer at a car dealership Duggar owned.

Duggar’s attorneys argued that statements he made to investigators during the search of the dealership should not have been allowed at trial since his attorney was not present.

Last year, his sentence was extended by two months to conclude in October 2032.

At the time, he was placed in solitary confinement after allegedly being found with a contraband cell phone.

The allegations against Duggar date to 2006.

A family friend sent a tip to authorities that he had allegedly molested four of his sisters.

However, the investigation ended because the statute of limitations had passed.

The allegations reemerged in 2015.

Eventually, it led to the cancellation of Duggar’s show “19 Kids and Counting.”

Duggar apologized for marital infidelity and pornography addiction at the time and sought treatment.

He is married to Anna Duggar, and they share seven children together.
