He was immediately taken into custody at Washington County Jail, where he was placed in solitary confinement away from other prisoners for his safety until his sentencing next year.
When Josh is sentenced, he was be transferred to federal prison for the crime, as he faces 20 years for each count.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Josh is not allowed conjugal visits with his wife Anna, who has stood by his side.
According to the Bureau of Federal Prisons website, conjugal visitation is “not permitted within any BOP facility.”
Arkansas is also not one of the states that allow conjugal visitation in non-federal prisons.
Josh was arrested and charged with possessing and receiving child pornography in April 2021.
The Sun previously reported Anna had moved into the home of Josh’s guardians, LaCount and Maria Reber, while awaiting trial.
A source told The Sun at the time: “Anna is spending most of her time with Josh at the Rebers, and her family has stepped in to help raise all their kids.
“She takes them to visit him or they are looked after while she’s there alone, despite what he’s been charged with she refuses to believe he’s guilty.
“Anna has pretty much moved in.”
The Rebers, who are friends of Jim Bob’s, live in a stunning mansion in Elkins, Arkansas featuring four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The home provided privacy for Josh, as a long gravel driveway led from the main road to the abode.

A source told The Sun: “The night of the sentencing the lights were on at the warehouse. The SUV parked right outside was the car Anna left court in.”
Josh’s address listed in his jail records also matches the lot owned by Jim Bob and Michelle that the warehouse sits on.
The Sun reported in 2020 that Josh, Anna and their children were living in the small home before the arrest.
Anna was by Josh’s side every day at the nearly two-week long trial.
Many members of the Duggar family sat in on the trial, offering support to their fallen relative.
Siblings Jana, Jason, Joy-Anna, her husband Austin Forsyth, Justin, his wife Claire, Jessa, Jill and her husband Derick Dillard, along with father Jim Bob, were all present at some point.
Though Josh didn’t cry after hearing the guilty verdict, Josh was “teary-eyed” and “solemn” when handcuffed, according to The Sun’s reporter at the scene.
The ex Counting On alum was cuffed immediately and taken away.
He stopped to tell his wife Anna that he “loved” her on his way out.
