He is reportedly considered a "walkaway" escapee and was serving out his sentence at a section of the facility known as a "satellite camp," which is the most lenient environment for incarcerated individuals, according to Jose Santana, who previously worked for the Bureau of Prisons.

"This incarcerated individual took the trust that the correctional administrator placed on him because those individuals have to prove themselves that they're not violent," Santana explained. "To be in a minimum security camp, which really has no fences… it is the least restrictive environment."

As OK! previously reported, Duggar is currently serving a 12.5 year sentence at the same facility after being convicted of receiving and possessing child pornography. He was transferred from Washington County Jail in Arkansas to FCI Seagoville shortly after his sentencing hearing in late May.
