Judge bars Josh Duggar from bringing cameras, media with him in child-porn case

Josh Duggar, the father of four children, was the first person to be indicted on charges related to child pornography.

Judge Larry Stamper ruled that Duggar would not be able to bring with him any of his devices or any media recording devices — to include videos and images — in the courtroom during the trial, the Associated Press reported.

Stamper’s ruling came just one day after another judge ruled that eight other individuals — the parents of the children who allegedly found pornography on their children’s computers — would not be allowed to attend Duggar’s trial in a state court, rather than in federal court.

It wasn’t immediately clear how Stamper would rule on who else would be allowed in the courtroom, but AP reports that if Duggar did have any other devices they could be stored with his attorney.

Duggar, a pastor, is expected to plead guilty to child pornography, according to the Huffington Post. He had originally been charged with “extreme child pornography,” with a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, though the judge indicated that there might be a lesser punishment.
