Both sides rest in Josh Duggar’s child porn case

JUPITER, Fla. — Both sides rested their cases Sunday in the child pornography case against Josh Duggar after two days of testimony.

The defense presented its case for the prosecution then took a break for lunch before calling prosecutors to the stand. Prosecutors recounted the gruesome details of explicit child pornography he produced and the items seized in 2015 from the former reality TV star’s home in Tontitown, Ark.

Defense attorneys then questioned both prosecutors — Assistant U.S. Attorney Cori Christiansen and FBI agent and forensic examiner Joseph Lozano — over the results of their examination of the seized devices.

The defense brought up the implication that the police had seized excessive amounts of items when searching the home, but that the federal prosecutors would still be able to prove their case.

Defense attorney Jennifer Swann asked Christiansen: “How much is too much?”

Christiansen responded: “That’s exactly what we as prosecutors are looking at.”

“I see what you are saying,” Swann replied.

“We’re looking at what we are dealing with today?” Christiansen replied.

The prosecutors had previously testified that one of the computers had no access history, unlike another computer that was given a full history and additional photographs.

The defense began presenting its case Friday.

Jury selection is set to begin this week, with a possible verdict expected Tuesday.
