Josh Duggar Ordered to Pay $50K Fine After His Prison Release Despite His Financial Struggle

In addition, the disgraced former reality star will be prohibited from having contact with minors including his own children after receiving his 151-month jail sentence.

AceShowbiz - Josh Duggar seemingly will face money problems after his release from jail. The former star of "19 Kids and Counting" has been ordered by the court to pay a $50,000 fine after he finishes his 12-year prison sentence despite not having the ability to pay it.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the disgraced former TV personality will have to come up with $50,100 to pay fines associated with his criminal case. The court made the decision despite finding that he could not pay interest.

The order said if Josh does not pay the fine immediately, any unpaid balance shall be paid by him during "his term of imprisonment at a rate of up to 50% of [his] available funds." During his re-entry placement, he will also have to pay 10% of his gross monthly income until the debt is satisfied. Once he's released on supervised release, he will have to pay $500 per month or 15% of his net monthly household income.

Josh will be prohibited from having contact with minors including his own children as well. The "Counting On" alum has been ordered not to possess or use any computer with access to the internet without approval from his probation officer. His P.O. will have to sign off on any work-related computer usage.

The document further stated that Josh will not be allowed to have a medical marijuana card or view any kind of pornography, including adult. The order added that he has to submit to random polygraph tests and participate in a sex offense-specific treatment program.

Back in December 2021, Josh, who previously entered a not guilty plea, was found guilty on two counts related to possessing child pornography. Federal agents said they found a trove of disgusting photos and videos of children being abused on his work computer.

Then in late May, Josh was sentenced to more than 12 years in jail. During the hearing, which took place on May 25 after being delayed since April 5, Arkansas Judge Timothy L. Brooks called his crimes "the sickest of the sick."
