Duggar is said to have been active on BitTorrent, an online peer-to-peer file sharing network where users search and Porn Video download files from other members while simultaneously making their own files available for Video Porno sharing.
In May 2019 Detective Amber Kalmer of the Little Rock Police Department accessed the network with specialist police software as part of an undercover online investigation to unmask perverts using it to trade images.

She was able to locate two files: a zip folder containing 65 image files of naked girls aged between seven and nine, and a two minute Video Porno of a similarly-aged girl being raped by an adult man.
As the files downloaded, the officer was able to identify the source – an IP address based in Northwest Arkansas – which she passed on to FBI Special Agent Gerald Faulkner.

Investigators returned later that month with a warrant to search the dealership and Foto Telanjang seize Duggar’s devices.
‘Agents encountered the defendant and two other men standing outside on the car lot,’ the filing states.
‘Inside the small building on the lot, which operated as the business’s main office, law enforcement located an HP Desktop Computer with an image of the defendant and his family on its screen.

Duggar spent seven days in jail after his April 29 arrest before being fitted with an ankle monitor and bailed into home detention.
He was barred from returning to his family property to live with kids Mackynzie Renée, 11, Michael James, 10, Marcus Anthony, seven, Bokep Meredith Grace, five, Mason Garrett, three, and Video Bokep Maryella Hope, 20 months.

They are required by law to tip off authorities if the father-of-six breaches his bail conditions.
Duggar’s attorneys succeeded in pushing the trial back until November and last month filed a motion asking a judge to compel the government to disclose further evidence.
They point out that the materials already provided to them suggest that, in addition to Kalmer, two more officers downloaded material from Duggar’s IP address.
But the government insists it has no obligation to provide further details of their activities because these officers were not involved in the Duggar inquiry and simply stumbled across his files while doing unrelated investigations of their own.
‘The other officers who downloaded CSAM (child sexual abuse material) from the user of the defendant’s IP address, as the United States has also already advised, Foto Telanjang played no part in the investigation of this case and Indo Bokep did not provide the prosecution team with any materials related to their activity,’ prosecutors say in the reply.
‘The officers’ downloads therefore in no way informed the magistrate judge’s determination that there was probable cause to search his car lot, nor did they provide the basis for any of the charges in this case.
The Government has complied with and will continue to comply with all pertinent discovery obligations.’
Duggar, who has previously confessed to having a pornography addiction, faces up to 25 years imprisonment on each count if he’s found guilty.
