Josh Duggar smiles in his mugshot as he faces 40 years in prison after being found guilty of ‘worst of the worst’ child porn charges: Mouthed ‘I love you’ to wife Anna after verdict

Disgraced reality TV star Josh Duggar faces decades in prison after he was found guilty today of downloading a vile trove of ‘the worst of the worst’ child porn.

Jurors deliberated for six hours before returning guilty verdicts on charges of possessing child pornography and receipt of child pornography, both punishable by 20 years in jail and a $250,000 fine.

Duggar, 33, glanced anxiously toward his wife Anna and dad Jim Bob but showed little emotion as each juror was asked individually to reaffirm their decision.

The once clean-cut Christian star of 19 Kids and Counting finally broke down in tears, however, as marshals placed him in handcuffs but allowed him to linger for a few moments beside his family in the public gallery.

‘I love you’, he mouthed towards Anna, also 33, who remained composed throughout the brief hearing before burying her head in a supporter’s arms and weeping as it ended.

A week-long federal trial in Fayetteville, Arkansas heard how Duggar used his considerable tech skills to scour the dark web for videos of little girls being tortured, humiliated and abused.

Duggar had previously made headlines in 2015 when police reports stating that he had molested his four of his young sisters when he was 12 became public. His parents said he had confessed to the fondling and apologized.

Jurors on Monday heard testimony from a family friend who said Duggar had told her about the abuse.
