Josh Duggar’s ‘sad’ 34th birthday in prison after child porn conviction

Josh Duggar is celebrating his first birthday behind bars after passing away convicted of possession of child pornography last December.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star, who is being held at the Washington County Detention Center in Arkansas, turned 34 on Thursday.

“Josh’s birthday will be a sad day,” said a family friend FoxNews. “He’s got kids, a wife, he’s got a family, and he can’t see them, so his birthday is going to be tough.”

It is likely his first of many birthdays he has spent in prison and the father of seven is due to be sentenced next month.

He now faces up to two decades in prison after a jury found him guilty on one count each of receipt and possession of child pornography.

However, the anonymous pal said the prison bird will have a harder time missing his children’s birthdays.

Duggar and his wife Anna are parents to Mackynzie (12), Michael (10), Marcus (8), Meredith (6), Mason (4), Maryella (2) and Madyson (4 months).

“I wouldn’t say he’s focused on himself. He’ll miss the opportunity to spend time with them,'” the friend said. “Every day has to be hard. That’s going to be part of what he has to go through if he goes through this.”

Anna supports her husband and her strong Christian faith is a balm for her and her imprisoned husband.

“I know the family and their faith is what will get them through anything, period. Even if they don’t like what he did or what he was accused and charged and found guilty of, they will always stand by him,” the friend continued.

Duggar was arrested in April last year on charges of receiving and possessing explicit images of children found on his work computer at a car dealership.

During his December trial, Duggar’s defense argued that someone else downloaded the child pornography discovered on his device. His attorney, Justin Gilfand, went so far as to call the case “a classic, old-fashioned murder mystery.”

Duggar is currently being held at the Washington County Detention Center.  He is due to be sentenced next month.

However, the jury also heard about it during the trial a DOJ agent who claimed Duggar downloaded a horrific video depicts a “3-month-old baby being tortured and sexually abused.”

The reality star was eventually convicted on both counts against him.
