Josh Duggar, the disgraced former reality star and convicted criminal, has been caught with a contraband cellphone in prison. This violation of prison rules resulted in Duggar being placed into solitary confinement as punishment for his actions. The news comes as a surprise to many who have followed the case closely.
Duggar has been kept in a solitary confinement cell since being caught with the illegal cellphone. He is allowed limited contact with family and friends, including one telephone call per day. In addition, he is only allowed to leave his cell for two hours of recreation each day.
According to Radar Online, a family member of an inmate at the same federal facility as Duggar said about him, “He went into the SHU for having a cellphone. I can tell you that the SHU there is so bad that the regional office was just down there to see what was going on.”
Duggar’s recent use of an illegal cellphone is raising serious concerns about the security of prisons. The fact that a convicted criminal was able to acquire and use a phone behind bars is alarming and shows that there may be gaps in the security measures taken at correctional facilities.
