Joshua Duggar’s release date from federal prison has been pushed back.
According to the Bureau of Prisons website, Duggar, 35,’s release date has been changed to October 2, 2032. His original release date was August 12, 2032.
Duggar, a former reality TV personality and used car salesman, was convicted of two charges of child pornography in federal court for the Western District of Arkansas in Fayetteville on December 9, 2021. He was sentenced to 151 months in federal prison, followed by 20 years of probation with a host of special conditions.
Nexstar’s KNWA/FOX24 contacted the Bureau of Prisons for information about the reason for Duggar’s release date change, but a Freedom of Information Act request was denied in its entirety.
“To the extent sensitive non-public records exist, without consent, proof of death or
overriding the public interest, disclosure of documents would undermine the
privacy,” wrote the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons, in its response.
