TLC reality star Josh Duggar will stand trial on child pornography charges in Arkansas this week where phones, laptops, and recording devices have been banned from the courtroom.
US District Judge Timothy L. Brooks issued the order ahead of court proceedings, which will begin on Tuesday in Fayetteville.
Duggar, 33, who appeared in TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, was charged in April with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography.
He faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000 on each count if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty.
Duggar is the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s nine daughters and ten sons featured on the TLC reality show which documented the devout Baptist family’s life in Tontitown, Arkansas.
TLC pulled the long-running reality series after seven years in 2015 over revelations that Duggar had molested four of his sisters and a babysitter.
