FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — A federal judge says no phones, laptops or recording devices will be allowed at next week's child pornography trial for former reality TV star Josh Duggar.
U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks issued the order ahead of the trial, which is set to begin Tuesday in Fayetteville, the https://www.nwaonline.com/news/2021/nov/24/no-phones-laptops-or-recording-devices-allowed-at/">Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported.
Duggar, who appeared in TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” was https://apnews.com/article/tv-josh-duggar-entertainment-reality-tv-arts-and-entertainment-dd8ab972d1bfb6d73c7baca0ce0baf46">charged in April with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography.
Duggar, 33, faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000 on each count if convicted.

Duggar has also apologized for https://apnews.com/article/entertainment-arts-and-entertainment-pornography-television-programs-josh-duggar-594d303d185e4eabaa6ec9f0c2926146">his pornography addiction and for cheating on his wife.
Meanwhile, his father, Jim Bob Duggar, has https://apnews.com/article/entertainment-arts-and-entertainment-arkansas-springdale-jim-bob-73c70cd4d33490c604ad23032086d4bf">announced plans to run for a recently vacated state Senate seat.

The primary election in that race is Dec. 14.
