The media made a lot of noise about the oldest son of Jim Bob and Michaelle Duggar. That’s because he was a famous face from the TLC show. Additionally, he professed to be a Christian.

So, a lot of chatter ran around for about 20 to 40 years. However, with one charge dropped, he ended up with 12 years and seven months.

Tack on reductions for good behavior, and he could walk out even sooner.

Meanwhile,m anitehr follower already figured out he’s serve less than 12 year and seven months. They noted, “But it’s not a surprise. The system, I read at the time, calls for his serving 85% of the time, if all goes well. 12 years x 85% = 10.2 years. That would be true of everyone. We may not like it, but those are the current federal rules for this type of sentence.”
