Josh Duggar has moved…prisons, that is. The former “19 Kids and Counting” reality star has been located from a prison in his home state of Arkansas to a facility out of state, Us Weekly has reported.
According to the outlet, Duggar, 34, has been transported to FCI Seagoville, a low security federal correctional institution near Dallas, Texas, to serve the remainder of his over 12-year sentence for child pornography charges. Duggar had previously been incarnated just over five hours away at Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville.
The move comes about one month after Duggar was sentenced to 151 months behind bars after being previously convicted of receiving child pornography. He was also fined $10,000 and will be required to participate in a “sex offense-specific treatment program,” USA Today reported at the time. He had faced up to 20 years in prison.

Duggar’s sentencing, however, will not be his last day in court. Duggar’s representation filed an appeal on his behalf in Arkansas earlier this month after his judgement of conviction has been entered into record. According to the court filing, as reported by Us Weekly, attorneys for the former TV star says he is inquiring about one count of receiving child pornography.
Duggar was made famous for his part in the now defunct TLC reality series “19 Kids and Counting.” The series followed Josh and his 18 siblings as well as his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. After being accused of molestation as a teen in 2015, TLC dropped the program before retooling the show to star some of Josh’s victims, his own sisters. The spinoff “Counting On” premiered on the network in 2015 before it was canceled last June.
Josh has been married to his wife Anna since 2008. The two share seven children together.
