On Thursday, Josh Duggar was arrested by the feds. On Friday, he was in court and his charges were made public. The former TLC star is being charged with two counts of child pornography for both receiving and possessing it. For now, Josh is in jail awaiting his bond hearing, which is set to take place on May 5.
After learning of his charges, people wanted to learn more about him, specifically his net worth. The former TLC star spent years on TV, thanks to his parents’ shows, including 19 Kids & Counting. In addition to being on TV, the Duggar son was a car salesman in Arkansas, where most of the family resides. He was also involved in politics for a little while.
Despite spending so much time on TV, it doesn’t look like Josh walked away with too much money, even as a reality TV star. In the past, Jill Duggar Dillard has claimed that she wasn’t fairly compensated for her time on TLC. So, it’s possible that Josh didn’t make much money from the shows either, but that’s simply speculation.
Anna Duggar claims that her husband provides for the family, calling him a “diligent worker.” This was in response to fans wondering how Josh and Anna support themselves and their six children. Plus, they are expecting their seventh child.
Here are some details about the arrest.
What is Josh Duggar’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Josh is worth an estimated $200,000. The source lists him as an entrepreneur and TV personality.
With a conviction, he will be subject to up to 20 years of imprisonment. He will also have to pay fines up to $250,000 on each count, equaling $500,00.
While it doesn’t seem likely that a bond will be set, that would put Josh and Anna out even further. At this point, a bond hasn’t been set. We won’t find out until May 5 what the bond amount is if he does get one. Not to mention, he has all kinds of legal fees to pay throughout the process.
