OK! learned a judge ruled in favor of Josh after he requested his previous admission he was addicted to porn not be allowed to be used against him in court.

In 2015, Duggar released a statement saying, “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the years been viewing pornography on the internet and this has become an addiction.”

Prosecutors had intended to use his shocking admission during trial to prove “his motive, intent, knowledge, or plan to commit the crimes charged.”
