This guy makes me so angry. Why is someone who molested his own sisters allowed to live in a house with children? Wth is wrong with his wife? Why would she make 7 children with someone so dangerous? He needs to be c@$+r@+ed and locked up for life.

The "19 Kids and Counting" star, 33, has been charged with possessing child pornography and pleaded not guilty to said allegations in a federal Arkansas court on Friday.

Now, Duggar maintains to the court that he is not a flight risk and should be let out of jail pending trial in order to care for his large family and pregnant wife Anna Duggar, according to a legal filing by the used car salesman, according to TMZ. 

When charges were brought against Duggar, U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Erin L. Wiedemann said that if the reality star were to be released on bond, he would have to be in a residence where there’s no minor in the home, according to a release from the US Attorney’s Office.

Duggar presses that because he "has no criminal convictions, and has known about this federal criminal investigation since November 2019 when Homeland Security Investigations executed a search of Duggar’s prior workplace," he is no more a flight risk than any other celebrity with an identifiable mug.

Through his attorneys Travis Story and Justin Gelfand, Duggar’s pitch to the feds is that he "has a widely-recognizable face and has spent the majority of his life in the public spotlight — making any concern that he is a risk of flight all the more unwarranted."

He added, according to the gossip site that because the federal court allowed Duggar to voluntarily self-surrender under his own recognizance that it should, in turn, let him out of jail on bail.
