In photos obtained by the outlet, Josh's wife — who recently welcomed their seventh child — walked out of the Arkansas courthouse solo as her husband was thrown in handcuffs. While the guilty verdict was being read, Anna was reportedly "completely stoic," before being comforted by father-in-law Jim Bob Duggar.

As OK! previously reported, the used cars salesman faces up to 20 years of imprisonment and up to $250,000 in fines on each of the two counts. His sentencing will occur on a later date, which has yet to be announced.

The father-of-seven appeared "teary-eyed" as the jury sealed his fate. He was ordered straight into custody where he was cuffed immediately and hauled away. On his way out of the courtroom a "solemn" Josh stopped to tell Anna he "loved" her.
