Josh Duggar’s trial ended in December 2021 with a guilty verdict
Josh Duggar’s trial took place in late 2021 and ended after the prosecution had ample evidence to suggest he participated in illegal activities. In 2019, Homeland Security raided his parking lot, Wholesale Motorcars, and confiscated a number of items. Radar Online reports that they took his phone, a laptop and his work computer.
Court transcripts note that a federal agent talked about seizing Josh’s belongings. According to the agent, they told Josh they had a search warrant for Wholesale Motorcars. They also told Josh he could leave if he wanted at that time. Josh remained at the scene.
Homeland Security then seized Josh’s HP all-in-one desktop computer and a MacBook laptop. When Josh went to the police car to answer some questions, he asked, unprompted, “Has anyone uploaded child pornography?”

Josh Duggar’s trial revealed what feds found on the office computer. But what was the scene like at Wholesale Motorcars? Daily Mail broke Duggar’s recent news with photos from Josh’s desk at his workplace.
A photo shared by the publication shows Josh’s desktop computer in the corner of the 10ft by 8ft room. The wall next to his desk and chair is covered in sticky notes, a calendar, and other reminders.

Josh Duggar reportedly worked with his brother Jed Duggar after Wholesale Motorcars shut down
The Josh Duggar arrest and the Wholesale Motorcars raid both broke the Duggar news. But after losing Wholesale Motorcars, the Duggar family member didn’t stop working altogether. Josh allegedly worked with Jed Duggar at another parking lot before his arrest.
According to The Sun, Jed Duggar worked alongside Josh Duggar at Champion Motorcars after Wholesale Motorcars closed. It seems that the brothers also had a close relationship. Phone call logs acquired by The Sun note that Josh called Jed three times from his Arkansas jail cell before Jed picked up. Josh apparently didn’t try to call any of his sisters.
In more recent news from Duggar, Josh’s legal team has appealed and hopes to secure a new trial or acquittal for the crimes.
