Duggar is facing federal charges on two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography, with prosecutors alleging that Duggar was in possession of 200 or more images showing the sexual abuse of children ranging from toddlers to 12-year-olds. He has pleaded not guilty.

Duggar and his extended family were the subject of the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting,” which was removed from air in 2015 after it was revealed that Duggar had molested four of his sisters and a babysitter when he was a teenager. 

The trial is set to begin on Tuesday in Fayetteville, Ark.
