According to The Sun, the embattled couple listed the sprawling 8,000 sq. ft. home ten months after Homeland Security raided his used car business in November 2019.

"We’re in the process of remodeling. I got a big project up there. It’s 8,000 square feet," Josh told Homeland Security at the time, according to court transcripts. "So we spend some time there, sometimes at my parents' place as well. So we’re kind of split between the two, depending what we have going on there."

The listing described the five acre property as a "unique opportunity" and boasted about its "spectacular views," but pictures of the home revealed its worn and outdated walls, cabinets and flooring, as well as a neglected in-ground pool filled with green water.

"The home has no finished work," an insider spilled to the outlet. "It’s a shell."

Not only did the mother-of-seven take to Instagram on Thursday, February 3, to tell her followers "there is more to the story," but she also updated her bio with a link that led to information on a motion for acquittal or a new trial, which was filed on Wednesday, January 19.

The 19 Kids and Counting alum's legal team requested the court dismiss his charge of Possession of Child Pornography arguing: "the Government failed to adduce any evidence that Duggar 'knew that the visual depictions were of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct'—a necessary element for conviction of each count."
