People Magazine reports that Josh Duggar Had More Than 200 Images of ‘Child Sexual Abuse Material’ on His Computer:
Homeland Security agent Gerald Faulkner said that the files found on Josh Duggar’s computer were among “the worst of the worst” material he’s ever had to examine.
,,,The agent described multiple torrent files downloaded from a child abuse series described as within the “top five of the worst of the worst” that he has ever examined.
Faulkner said that Josh downloaded torrent files that included “a series of child sexual abuse material involving minor children ranging from about 18 months of age to 12 years of age.”
Josh was released under certain restrictions why awaiting trial.
…Josh will be released to designated third party custodians, Lacount and Maria Reber, described in court as “close friends” of the Duggar family. He will be confined to their home and monitored with GPS tracking.
Comstock said that she “cannot in good conscience” release Josh to his pregnant wife Anna and their six children — Maryella Hope, 17 months, Mason Garrett, 3½, Meredith Grace, 5½, Marcus Anthony, 7½, Michael James, 9½, and Mackynzie Renée, 11.
He has been granted “unlimited contact” with his children, so long as Anna is present. Josh may not see any other minor child, including his nieces and nephews.
In the four-hour Zoom hearing, Comstock noted some of the children depicted in the sexual abuse material in Duggar’s possession were close to the ages of Duggar’s own children.
Agent Faulkner testified to finding dozens of pornographic images depicting nude images and the sexual abuse of children, including toddlers, on a hidden hard drive of a of Duggar’s work computer. Faulkner also said more than 200 images had been found on the computer that had been deleted.
…If convicted, Duggar, who is married and has six children, could face up to 20 years in prison and fines up to $250,000 on each count. His trial is scheduled for July 6.
Why the Covenant Eyes website application will not be successful with someone like Dugger: He appears to have trouble with a paraphilia involving underage children. This is not your average porn addiction. It is the abuse of children.
According to Roys, Duggar has a program called Covenant Eyes installed on his computer. At the Covenant Eyes website, we learn that it is a program to help overcome porn addiction.
We’re Here to Help You Succeed. Our accountability-based service is safe, secure, and proven effective at helping members overcome porn addiction.
The first problem with this program being applied to Duggar’s situation is that child porn isn’t adult porn. It is the sexual abuse of underage children. How could anyone suggest that the sexual abuse of an 18-month-year-old toddler is the same as adult porn which is bad enough? Many women and men on adult porn are victims of human trafficking. As I stressed in my last post on Duggar:
It appears that Josh Duggar has had some form of paraphilia for much of his life and needs intensive psychiatric care.
It is highly unusual for a teen boy to molest his sisters. It is even more unusual for the parents to *solve this* by having the girls lock the door to their room. To make matters worse, the parents encouraged Anna to marry Josh. I wonder if they thought she might cure his problem. She didn’t and she learned that Josh cheated on her. Still, the parents encouraged Anna to stick with Josh and to keep pumping out the babies.
Now it appears that Josh allegedly has been caught accessing child pornography, showing pictures of children under 12 years old. Imagine a man getting his jollies by watching little children being raped? Such a man is possibly a pedophile which is a paraphilia, something I discuss regularly. Here is the best paper from the NIH: Paraphilias: definition, diagnosis and treatment:
In my opinion, Duggar has a serious problem with little hope for a *cure* no matter what Jim Bob, Michelle, and Anna pretend. He needs serious psychiatric intervention, something the Duggars are probably dead set against. Even with this intervention, the hope will be that he doesn’t continue to offend but he most likely will always have these compulsions. And that is a problem with him being around his children.
And the Covenant Eyes debacle proves this. Josh did a workaround. He’s not stopping, folks! Wake up, Anna! Your kids are in danger. According to Jule Roys:
In their investigation, agents found that Duggar had installed “Covenant Eyes,” a monitoring program intended to keep users from viewing pornography. The Christian-oriented program would monitor Duggar’s internet usage and send reports to his wife. However, Duggar had bypassed Covenant Eyes by hiding the material on a hard drive that was not being monitored by the program, according to Faulkner.
Anna Duggar appears to refuse to prioritize her children over Josh Duggar and makes up stories to justify his actions such as Joe Biden is behind it all.
Julie Roys did a great podcast discussing Understanding the Duggar “Cult” It is well worth the listen if you would like to learn more about the beliefs of this “cult” to which the Duggars belong. I know that Anna has been raised in this group which tells her to have as many children *as God wants them to have.* However, being forced to have sex with her husband when she is most fertile and never being allowed to use birth control will guarantee that there will be lots of children unless there is something wrong with her internal plumbing. Josh’s sister, Jill, is now using birth control and only has two children.
Anna is stuck in her system of belief that prioritizes Josh Duggar over the safety of their children. Since she must continue to has sex with the leader of her family, she has to come up with something that releases her from the priority she must have to keep her children safe. And that she has allegedly done. According to some outlets, including The Sun: Josh Duggar’s wife Anna is ‘in denial and at WAR with in-laws Jim Bob & Michelle’ after husband’s child porn arrest.
She appears to be partly blaming his parents which is at least believable.
The 32-year-old – who is expecting the couple’s seventh child – is said to be standing by Josh and has cut herself off from most of the family after he was busted in Arkansas late last month
…Jim Bob said she blames him and wife Michelle for Josh’s arrest.Anna feels it all stems from how they dealt with his previous molestation scandal after he assaulted his sisters.”
She also apparently believes that Joe Biden is behind Josh’s arrest and that this would not have happened if Donald Trump was president.
(Folks, please do not go off into a political rant.)
They added: “She also thinks that this case is a conspiracy theory against her husband set up by the Biden administration.”She believes that if Donald Trump was still in power this would not be happening, and refuses to believe he’s done anything wrong.”
It is my hope that someone in this group of Duggars will understand how serious the proof against Josh is. His children are at risk and Anna appears to be in denial.
