Brutally disgraced former alt-Right Christian “activist” and “star” of TLC’s reality TV show, 19 Kids and Counting, Joshua Duggar has been tossed into solitary confinement housing at the Federal Correctional Institution in Seagoville, Texas, where he currently resides following his guilty verdict and subsequent sentencing last year, according to reporting from entertainment tabloid Radar Online.
Duggar is currently housed in the Seagoville, Texas, Federal Correctional Institution, where he is serving out a 151-month prison sentence after he was found guilty on charges of possession of child pornography, following a November 2019 raid and electronics seizure at the Arkansas used car lot where the former reality TV personality was employed as a salesman.
Investigators discovered sickeningly heinous images, videos, and materials depicting brutal sex abuse against children ranging from the age of 18 months to 12 years old, with Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Gerald Faulkner describing the material as being “in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine.”
According to reporting from the tabloid, Duggar was thrown into solitary confinement at the federal prison after he was found to be in possession of illegal contraband, in the form of a cell phone.

A source spoke with Radar and described the alleged conditions of the solitary confinement housing at FCI, telling the tabloid, “He went into the [solitary housing unit] for having a cellphone. I can tell you that the [solitary housing unit] there is so bad that the regional office was just down there to see what was going on.”
Even before Duggar’s horrific child pornography news broke, the former TLC star has been no stranger to sex scandals.
Prior to his job as a used car salesman, Duggar was employed with the Family Research Council — an American evangelical activist group and think-tank that claims to promote “family values” — where Josh worked closely with the group to lobby against LGBTQIA rights and same-sex marriage, only to resign from his position in shame when reports when public exposing his past molestations of his own sisters.
Following those reports, Duggar personally released a statement to People Magazine, reading, “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
Duggar was also infamously embroiled in the notorious Ashley Madison scandal, resulting in the account he used to engage in extramarital affairs going public.
