Josh Duggar granted release as he awaits child porn trial

Source: AP

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) A federal judge on Wednesday allowed former reality TV star Josh Duggar to be released as he awaits trial on charges that he downloaded and possessed child pornography.

Magistrate Judge Christy Comstock ordered Duggar, 33, confined to the home of family friends who have agreed to be his custodian during his release and prohibited Duggar from any Internet-accessible devices pending his July 6 trial on the child pornography charges.

Duggar was indicted on the federal child pornography charges on Friday, a day after U.S. Marshals arrested him. He has pleaded not guilty.

I have full confidence in the United States Marshal Service to find you if you decide not to comply with these conditions of release, so dont make me regret this decision," Comstock said after a four-hour hearing conducted over Zoom.

4. The images on his computer were some of the worst that the fed agent had seen.

His wife allegedly thinks hes innocent. Will she be a good monitor? I would think that there should be limited access with social services present when visiting his kids.

6. Still producing more children to sexually abuse.

He will never change and needs to never, ever be around children again.

10. in perspective....

He isn't being charged with actively abusing children, although that is in his past. He is charged with being in possession of child porn.

The judge may not have made a popular call, but I can see her angst over her decision.

Her decisions were probably (a) is he a flight risk, and more importantly (b) is he a danger to children while he awaits trial.

Now would the judgement be different for a black man of equal means? Statistically speaking, yes, but it's unknown with this judge.

It's a helluva of a case to land your first month on the job though.
