Last month, Josh Dugar was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in federal prison after being previously convicted of child pornography.
Cousin Amy Dugar predicted that the prison would be “hell” for Josh, and he was probably right.
Sex offenders who victimize children are considered to be among the lowest in the prison population and are often the target of harassment and physical violence.
And Josh will face some unique challenges after his release from prison.
Many critics of the Duggar family were upset that Josh did not receive a lengthy sentence, but perhaps they can take some comfort in the fact that he will be released from custody for a full 20 years after his release from prison.
According to a new TMZ report, Josh will not be allowed to communicate without supervision with any minor during that time, including his own children.
Yes, Josh will not be allowed to spend time alone with his children under the age of 18 at the time of his release.
And he will not be allowed to be in custody in the presence of a minor for the next two decades.
Any time Josh spends time with a minor, he must be supervised by his wife, his parents, or another adult who is authorized.
And that’s not all.
Josh will not be allowed to watch any kind of porn after his release.
Yes, even legal porn featuring adult entertainers will be limited to the full 20 years after Josh’s release.
In fact, he must get permission from his parole officer before being allowed to use the Internet for any reason.
So if Josh pays his full sentence, he will leave in the late sixties, at the end of two decades of release under his care.
Of course, considering the fact that he had been a hunter since he was a teenager, the idea of releasing Josh was probably more frightening for his victims.
A few years before he was arrested for receiving child pornography, Josh molested five young girls, four of whom were his sisters.
Her parents helped her avoid litigation, and she suffered no consequences for her actions.
Of course, he never received any kind of treatment or special care and was therefore able to claim more victims and destroy more lives.
Fortunately, the U.S. government will now do what Josh’s parents should have done and prevent him from claiming more victims.
We haven’t received any new updates on Josh’s life behind bars since his sentencing.
His attorneys have vowed to continue their appeal in the hope of getting a new trial, where they will argue that investigators violated Josh’s civil rights while trying to gather evidence against him.
Josh’s wife, Anna Dugar, confirmed that he was innocent and that the Biden administration had found him guilty.
In all likelihood, Josh will continue to maintain the lies that have served him well throughout his life.
But fortunately, the government can’t fool Josh’s wife and parents as easily.
