Josh Duggar Transfers Out Of Detention Center In Shackles

Josh Duggar, who formerly starred in the  TLC show, 19 Kids and Counting stayed in the Washington County detention center since his conviction.

Josh Duggar Is Moved Out Of The Detention Facility In Washington

Prior to the guilty verdict, the former TLC star stayed with pastor Lacount Reber and his wife, Maria as part of his bail conditions. Well, when the verdict was read out, he was immediately taken out of the court and placed in custody in the Washington County Detention Center. He stayed there whilst his legal team filed various motions until his sentencing date. Sentenced to 12 years and seven months, it will be a long time before he spends time with his family again.

Josh Duggar caused a scandal more than once with cheating allegations, but he compounded his porn offense because he earlier molested his younger sisters. The courts heard all about it, despite his dad, Jim Bob having a memory lapse during the hearings. Perhaps that’s why he stayed in protective custody for so long.  If you don’t know, the judges recommended that he goes to either Texarkana or Seagoville to serve his sentence. But the transfer out of Washington County doesn’t mean he goes straight there.
