An Arkansas jury found Josh Duggar guilty on both counts of downloading and possessing child porn. Duggar and his wife Anna are pictured arriving to court on Thursday morning.
The jury deliberated for six hours before finding him guilty.
The 33-year-old former reality TV star broke down in tears as U.S. marshals handcuffed him after the verdict was read in the courtroom.
The judge remanded him into custody under a rule based on the seriousness of his crimes. Prosecutors say Duggar downloaded “the worst of the worst” child porn.
He mouthed the words “I love you” to Anna as he was led away on Thursday. Duggar and Anna share seven children.

He is accused of searching the so-called “dark web” for videos of children being tortured, humiliated and abused by adults.
A family friend testified that Duggar (3rd from left) confessed at age 15 to groping and penetrating his sisters during “bible time” and while they slept.
His fall from grace began when he believed he was sharing files from his devices with other perverts online.
But a detective using a police program caught Duggar in the act of sharing porn files online. She was able to upload video and 65 images from his computer of a young girl being abused.
She tipped off the feds who traced the IP address to Duggar’s used car dealership, and seized his desktop computer, iPhone and MacBook laptop.
Duggar agreed to speak with federal agents, and asked them: “Has someone been downloading child pornography?”
Government prosecutors dismissed Duggar’s claims that a “high-level hacker” broke into his computer and downloaded the material.
The government said Duggar installed a secret second operating system behind a partition on his computer that only he alone could access.
Duggar and his wholesome siblings were stars of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting.” The series was canceled following his arrest in April.
His sentencing hearing is scheduled for next year. He faces 40 years in prison and a $500,000 fine if convicted on both counts.
