LA’s KLTA5 broke reporting that disgraced former TLC reality TV “star” Josh Duggar’s release date from federal prison has now been pushed back, just a few weeks removed from recent reporting from entertainment tabloid Radar Online, citing sources who said Duggar was thrown into solitary confinement after he was caught with illegal contraband.
There is no official confirmation that the two incidents are related.
KLTA5 cites confirmation found on the Bureau of Prisons website, showing that the release date for 35-year-old Duggar was moved from Aug. 12, 2032, to Oct. 2, 2032.
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.”
After his prison sentence is completed, Duggar stands subject to an additional 20 years of supervised release that boasts a whole host of additional special conditions that include no unsupervised access to minors and strict prohibitions against electronics use.
Following the development regarding Duggar’s release date, Nexstar’s KNWA/FOX24 reached out Bureau of Prisons with a Freedom of Information Act request for more information on the reasoning behind the former reality star’s adjusted date for prison release. However, their request was denied in full.
In their response to the request, the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons wrote, “To the extent non-public responsive records exist, without consent, proof of death, or an overriding public interest, disclosure of records would invade another individual’s personal privacy.”
