JOSH Duggar has been accused of downloading horrific child abuse images and videos.
It was revealed during Thursday's trial hearing that one file name found on his HP desktop computer is of a video of a "three-month-old being sexually abused and tortured."
WARNING: DISTURBING DETAILS BELOW
During day two of trial in Josh's child pornography case, the jury was shown disturbing images and videos prosecutors claim were found on the 33-year-old's computer.
A folder of child pornography was found in a cache folder in the downloads section on the computer.
Prosecution explained that the account linked to this computer has Josh’s name and address.
One folder contained 65 thumbnail files, which is where the child pornography was found.
While some of the files were attempted to be downloaded onto the computer, prosecutors did not offer direct proof that the videos and images were successfully downloaded and watched by Josh.
James Fottrell, the Director of Department of Justice for Child Exploitation, took the stand and said in court of the thumbnails: “There are multiple photos of a minor girl. She’s naked and a male is performing oral sex on her. She also poses on a toilet seat. The male's penis was next to her vagina.”
Sexually explicit images of minors were also found in one video, which is 30 minutes long.
Fottrell explained the disturbing video shows an adult woman naked as she showered with a girl watching TV on her bed.
The woman and a man then had sex before the woman went into the little girl's room and massaged her, spread her legs and fingered her vagina.
Another video described involved a minor girl taking down a man’s pants and performing oral sex on his penis.
An additional video file described by Fottrell is of an infant, who was 3-4 months old, being sexually abused with hot wax dropped on her as she is hung from her hands and feet.
The infant was clearly in pain as she cried and screamed the whole time, according to Fottrell.
Josh's trial is taking place in Fayetteville, Arkansas for charges stemming from his April 2021 arrest.
The former Counting On star faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.
Josh, who has pleaded not guilty, has been accused of possessing sick images of child pornography, which have been described as some of "the worst of the worst" that authorities had ever seen.
FAMILY SUPPORTS JOSH
Josh's family members showed up to support him during the court hearing on Thursday.
In addition to his wife Anna, 33, his brother-in-law Derick Dillard watched from the first row the whole time.
Derick is married to Josh's younger sister Jill, who was included on the potential witness list for the trial.
Meanwhile, Josh's sister Joy-Anna and her husband Austin Forsyth watched the hearing from the back of the room.
Josh's younger brother Justin was in attendance for the first half of the trial with his mother-in-law.
Both sat in the first row with Anna.
