Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Gerald Faulkner has given us a timeline on the Josh Duggar scandal, filling in some gaps and releasing new material on the investigation during his testimony for the prosecution.
According to Faulkner, who appeared for a zoom court hearing yesterday, when homeland security officials raided Duggar’s car dealership and asked to speak with him, even prior to them telling him why they were there and what the nature of their warrant was, he “spontaneously” responded, “What is this about? Has someone been downloading child pornography?”
Officials seized several computers and found the images on an HP device. They report that the computer had Covenant Eyes software downloaded on it, which is an accountability program designed to send any pornography usage to his wife Anna, alerting her of its access. Unfortunately, the child sexual abuse materials were on an isolated part of the computer’s hard drive that wasn’t able to be monitored by Covenant Eyes, on account of a password-protected network he used.
The prosecution alleges that Duggar downloaded more than 200 images on May 14, 15, and 16 of 2019, some of which were found deleted in the recycle bin. These vessels for Duggar’s horrific masturbatory fantasies depicted child sex abuse involving children ranging from 18 months to 12 years of age, with Agent Faulkner describing them as “in the top five of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine.”
While the prosecution asked that Josh Duggar be remanded, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas had other ideas, ruling that he was free to go, but that he must be released to a third-party custodian.
Furthermore, Josh cannot have access to the internet at this time, either on a computer or phone. He may not contact minors and cannot leave his custodian’s home, being bound with an ankle monitor with GPS tracking. He is allowed to visit with his own minor children so long as their mother is there.
