Former reality television star Josh Duggar was arrested by federal agents Thursday in Arkansas. Duggar pleaded not guilty Friday morning to child pornography charges.
Duggar's indictment, which was published by KNWA-TV, revealed the charges to be receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.
Duggar, 33, pleaded not guilty Friday morning in a virtual appearance before a U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas judge, KNWA reports.
