Josh Duggar wants to go home.
The admitted molestor and serial cheater and accused child pornography viewer has been behind bars since Wednesday, April 28.
On that date, he was taken into custody by federal agents in Arkansas because he allegedly downloaded material in May 2019 of children under the age of 12.
No bail was set at the time.
Ahead of a follow-up hearing on May 5, however, a bond motion by the father of six’s legal team has been submitted.
In part, it asks a judge to “release him on bail subject to a combination of conditions of release that will reasonably assure his appearance at trial and the safety of the community or any other person.”
Continues the document:
“Duggar … has no criminal convictions and has known about this federal criminal investigation since November 2019 when Homeland Security Investigations (‘HSI’) executed a search of Duggar’s prior workplace.”

But Josh’s lawyer says the ex-19 Kids and Counting cast member won’t do either.
Heck, he can’t really go anywhere, the lawyer claims — because he’s simply too famous.
“Duggar has a widely-recognizable face and has spent the majority of his life in the public spotlight — making any concern that he is a risk of flight all the more unwarranted,” the motion says.
A detention hearing is currently scheduled for Wednesday.
The former TLC personality’s legal counsel also asserts that “Duggar has maintained an open dialogue with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in connection with this investigation.”
The team says he “complied precisely as directed” when asked to “voluntarily self-surrender” in his case last week.
The thing is, even if Duggar is released on Wednesday, he will not …read more
