Josh Duggar pleads not guilty to child pornography charges

Embattled reality TV star Josh Duggar was caught downloading kiddie porn involving some children under the age of 12, the feds in Arkansas said Friday.

Duggar, 33, appeared in Arkansas federal court around noon Friday to plead not guilty to two related charges, a local Fox news affiliate reported, tweeting out a copy of a federal release detailing the raps in the case.

US District Judge Erin Weidemann scheduled a bond hearing for next week and said the married dad would not be allowed to have minors around him if he were released, according to 4029TV. 

He’s being held in the Washington County Detention Center.

Duggar was busted in Arkansas on Thursday by US marshals.

The arrest came days after his wife announced she was pregnant with the couple’s seventh child.

Duggar, 33, is the eldest of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s 19 children — and the Christian fundamentalist family was the subject of the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting.”

The show was canceled in 2015 after allegations surfaced that Josh Duggar had sexually abused five underage girls — including four of his sisters — when he was a teenager. He was never charged.

He was outed later that year for using the dating Web site Ashley Madison to cheat on his wife, Anna, 33.
