New court documents state, “Duggar … has no criminal convictions and has known about this federal criminal investigation since November 2019 when Homeland Security Investigations (‘HSI’) executed a search of Duggar’s prior workplace,” the documents read (via Us Weekly).
“Duggar has maintained an open dialogue with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in connection with this investigation” and “complied precisely as directed,” the document continued, adding that “Duggar is neither a risk of flight nor a danger to the community”
The documents concluded asking if the judge would “permit him to return home to his immediate family.”
Duggar married his wife Anna, 32, in 2008 and they share Mackynzie, 11, Michael, 9, Marcus, 7, Meredith, 5, Mason, 3, and Maryella, 17 months.
