The day before he appeared in court and was convicted of a pair of sexual assault charges, Josh Dugar was seen rejecting his last attempt at acquittal or a new trial.
On Tuesday, Judge Timothy L. Brooks issued his ruling Against The defense strikes, claiming that the government failed to “disclose some evidence” and that Dugar was entitled to another trial.
Or even, in the biggest dream of defense, a plane আমাদের our redemption.
Dugar, of course, was convicted on December 9, 2021 of downloading sexually explicit material from his work computer.
Judge Brooks dismissed the defense’s appeal:
“A verdict will only be overturned if a reasonable jury does not find the accused guilty beyond reasonable doubt.”
Further, his judgment stated that “the district court shall quash the judgment only if there is sufficient weight of evidence against the judgment which may result in a miscarriage of justice.”
The court said this in the previous defense filing Should Write the verdict of acquittal because “not enough evidence has been presented to the jury to show that he actually saw any child pornography.”
The judge said Tuesday that he had “no qualifications” for the argument:
“There is ample evidence that she saw child pornography images downloaded to her business computer.”
Brooks, the first witness in the prosecution, went on to cite the testimony of a Little Rock undercover police officer who was first connected to Dugar through peer-to-peer file sharing software.
According to a later eyewitness, Josh, a federal forensic expert, was responsible for the aforementioned material – which included a belly-twisting video of an 18-month-old child being raped.
Judge Brooks also referred to a specific piece of evidence submitted by the “Coup de Grace” prosecution.
The document in question was a timeline of “50 or 60 exhibits of forensic evidence recovered from Mr. Dugar’s HP desktop, iPhone 11, iPhone 8 and MacBook”.
Again, simply put?
The judge thinks Josh is testifying in court DidIn fact, download and see lots of examples of invalid images.
“Based on the court’s discussion of the above judicial evidence, Mr. Dugar’s argument in favor of acquittal has no merit,” Brooks said Tuesday.
Significant evidence was presented at the trial to indicate to a reasonable jury that Mr. Dugar was physically present at the time of the criminal conduct and that he had a male motive for committing these offenses.
“Accordingly, his request for relief under Rule 29 has been denied.”
Elsewhere over the past few months, Josh’s lawyers have tried to argue that Dugar was set.
They even named a former colleague named Caleb Williams as the alleged pedophile.
“Promises to defend the alternative offender fail because the trial shows that Mr Dugar – and only Mr Dugar – was physically present in the car lot when the child pornography was being downloaded,” Brooks said in response. .
Duggar will be sentenced on Wednesday, May 25.
His attorneys sent multiple letters to the judge from members of the Duggar family, all of whom tried to portray Duggar as a devoted family man who deserved a humble sentence.
In contrast, the prosecution has sentenced Duggar to 20 years in prison.
