Josh Duggar is released on bail following his arrest for child pornography
The 33-year-old reality television personality will not be able to return home with his wife, Anna Duggar, and their six children, but must have unlimited contact with them as long as Anna is present.
He will be in house confinement with Pastor Lacount Reber and his wife, Maria Reber, described in court as “close friends” of the Duggar family.
He will not be able to leave his home unless it is to see Anna and his children, attend church, report to work, and attend legal or medical appointments.
Josh, indicted on child pornography charges, will be monitored via GPS and will not be allowed to make connection with any children other than his own.
Josh was arrested on April 29 in Arkansas and held without bond and the next day, was arraigned on charges through Zoom.
His attorney entered a not guilty plea and waived Josh’s right to read the charges.
At his bail hearing on Wednesday, May 5, Judge Christy Comstock told Josh that she could not “in good conscience” send him home. “There are six minor children living in your home,” she said.
