Disgraced reality TV star Josh Duggar had his 12 1/2-year sentence extended by nearly two months after authorities reportedly discovered he had a contraband cell phone.

In December 2021, a federal jury in Arkansas found Duggar guilty of receiving and possessing child pornography that depicts the sexual abuse of victims “as young as toddlers.” Months later, US District Judge Timothy Brooks sentenced Duggar to more than a dozen years behind bars. He is serving his sentence in a low-security prison in Seagoville, Texas.

Prosecutors found the verdict justified by the “corrupted” material found behind multiple layers of encryption on his work computer. An infamous video titled “Daisy’s Destruction” showed the sexual assault of an 18-month-old child and was created by Australian trafficker Peter Scully, who is currently serving a life sentence for his crimes in the Philippines.

The government estimates it found more than 600 illegal images on Duggar’s computer, although his lawyers dispute that number. Duggar continues to deny committing the crimes while filing an appeal.

In February, several news outlets reported that prison authorities transferred Duggar to solitary confinement after discovering he had “smuggled” a cell phone into prison. A family member of an inmate at the same prison told The Sun that assignments to what is known as the Special Housing Unit (SHU) typically last for months. Given the crimes of Duggar’s convictions, obtaining electronic equipment would have been of particular concern to prison authorities. Josh Duggar’s sentence has been extended by nearly 2 months
