We all know the repulsive details of Josh Duggar's crime, so it will serve nothing to repeat them here. Today's news is rather that he is going behind bars for years as a result of those crimes:
Josh Duggar has been sentenced to more than 12 years in federal prison and ordered to pay fines and special assessments of $50,100.
U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks handed down the sentence of 151 months in total to the 34-year-old former 19 Kids and Counting star on Wednesday at the Western District of Arkansas Federal Courthouse in Fayetteville. ...
Twelve years is a long time. Frankly, I would have preferred it be double that. But prosecutors will take what they can get.
Meanwhile, his conditions upon release will be quite severe:
After his release from prison, Duggar will require the supervision of a parole office for 20 years and is prohibited from any unsupervised contact with minors, including his own children with wife Anna.
Duggar also must must participate in sex offender treatment and may not access or view pornography of any kind, including adult pornography.
He is not allowed any computer or electronic devices capable of photographic storage or internet access without prior approval by his probation officer, and internet-monitoring software must be added to any devices he possesses.
The post-release stipulation also includes random searches for Duggar, who is prohibited from obtaining a medical marijuana card allowed and must submit to periodic polygraph testing at his probation officer's discretion.
Let this be a strict warning to anyone who would commit similar sickening crimes.
