Josh Duggar says in trial he's 'not denying guilt' but claims he had 'no idea he had access to dark web on his computer'

JOSH Duggar made a startling "non-admission" when questioned about alleged child pornography on his personal computer in 2019.

In court on Wednesday, audio from an interview Josh conducted with Homeland Security agents was played.

At the time, after being presented with evidence, Josh told arresting officers: "I’m not going to say anything that’s going to incriminate me. I’m not denying guilt. I’m not saying if I am guilty or not."

In another audio recording played for the court, Josh Duggar was asked by an agent if he was aware of what peer-to-peer was, according to a Sun reporter at the trial.

Josh admitted he was "familiar" with it and that he knew of something "like a Tor browser." He claimed in the audio that they would upload "encrypted" stuff for the cars because it was safer.

Duggar then claimed he didn't know which one was meant and that he was confused.

The agent told him Tor was dark web, while torrents were for peer to peer.

"We had no idea the Tor browser was used in this investigation," special agent Gerald Faulker said. "Tor makes it difficult to see the IP address.

"The dark web is a known source for child porn. Josh using Tor for car photos makes no sense.

"The dark web is anonymous. The dark web isn’t the best place to sell cars. I never thought to purchase a vehicle on the dark web."

Josh, 33, is on trial the week commencing November 29, 2021, for child pornography charges from his April 2021 arrest.

At an Arkansas court hearing, Jim Bob, 56, testified on Josh’s 2006 molestation police report, where he was accused of molesting underage females in the family home from 2002 to 2003.

According to court papers obtained by The Sun, Jim Bob’s testimony was on behalf of the government.

KNWA reported Jim Bob testified “on the allegations that Josh touched four minors in the early 2000s.”

The state fought to discuss the scandal at trial, while Josh's defense demanded the details from the report be kept out.
