As you may have heard, Josh Dugar was sentenced to 12 and a half years in federal prison last week.
Josh was sentenced about six months after he was convicted of taking and possessing child pornography.
On the day he was convicted, Josh was coughed up and taken to the Arkansas County Jailhouse, which has served as his home ever since.
Now a days, he will be held in a federal prison where he will be held for at least the next decade, and Josh’s standard of living will largely depend on where he ends up.
According to a new report from the local Fox-approved KNWA, Judge Timothy L. Brooks considered the details of Josh’s case and made a recommendation to the prison bureau.
BOP spokesman Donald Murphy told KNWA that the bureau “nominates individuals to the organization for a number of reasons.”
“Some of the factors include the level of security and supervision of detainees, any medical or programming needs, segregation and security measures to ensure the safety of detainees, and other considerations, including the proximity of a person’s release,” Murphy said.
Judge Brooks recommended that Josh be placed in the Segoville or Texarkana Federal Correctional Institution (FCI), both located in Texas.
Brooks told the court that Sigovil was his first choice because of the “high-wealth treatment program” of facilities for sex offenders.
The BOP’s website describes Segoville as “a low-security federal correctional institution with an adjacent minimum security satellite camp and a detention center.”
The facility is about a six-hour drive from Tontitown, Arkansas, where Josh’s wife, Anna Dugar, now lives with the couple’s seven children.
Seagoville FCI’s treatment program for sex offenders consists of “outpatient groups meeting 2-3 times per week for a few hours,” and it takes 9-12 months to complete.
It is described as a “moderate-intensity program” that allows participants to “learn basic skills and concepts to understand their past crimes and reduce their risk of future crimes.”
The program is offered only for “offenders assessed as having a low to moderate risk of re-offending,” but it is not clear how that risk level is determined.
At Josh’s sentencing hearing, Judge Brooks said the court had “concerns” about the reconsideration.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
The Texarkana facility does not offer any such treatment program, but it is a little closer to the dugouts’ home in Tontitown.
The BOP’s website mentions that the Texarkana prison is famous for its efforts to enforce rape laws.
The bureau reports that inmates receive information after arriving at the facility “explaining the agency’s zero-tolerance guidelines on sexual harassment and sexual harassment”.
Wherever he is sent, it seems Josh will get fewer visitors than he is accustomed to.
If he is not limited by money, Anna Josh can go near the prison.
However, sources say that Anna is leaving with Josh’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, as she has a few more options.
Insiders have predicted that “prison will be hell” for Josh, and the county jailhouse where he lives gives him little idea of what the experience will be like.
Whatever the case may be, Josh’s lifestyle seems to be changing dramatically.
