The charges out on him were receiving and possessing material that claims child pornography. A video of Josh in the jail was also revealed on the web. The Hollywood Gossip reports Josh to have downloaded the image of underage girls or maybe boys from his car dealership office. All these children are under the age of 12.
The TLC alum was also claimed to have molested four of his sisters, including a babysitter. Josh is behind bars, and the judgment is still to come out.
