Josh Duggar will not be allowed to spend any time alone with his children until they are adults.

The disgraced reality star was found guilty of receiving and possessing child pornography on Thursday, December 9. He was later sentenced to over 12 years in prison and ordered to pay a $50,000 fine. Part of his sentence also banned him from watching any type of pornography, and forbade unsupervised visits with his children.

Now, according to court documents per TMZ, after Josh is released from his 151 month stint behind bars, he will still not be allowed to spend time with any kids alone — including his own — for the entirety of his 20 year probation.

This means that even the youngest of his seven children — he shares Mackynzie, 12, Michael, 10, Marcus, 8, Meredith, 6, Mason, 4, Maryella, 2, and Madyson, 7 months, with wife, Anna — will be several years into adulthood by the time he is legally allowed unsupervised visits with minors.

COUNTING ON: WHO ARE JOSH & ANNA DUGGAR'S SEVEN CHILDREN?

As OK! previously reported, Judge Timothy L. Brooks called Josh's crimes "the sickest of the sick" at his sentencing hearing on Wednesday, May 25.

"You have done some very bad things. But in your life as a whole, you’ve done good things," the judge told the embattled former tv star. "The true test of a man’s character is what a man does when no one is watching ... I find it aggravating about the lack of responsibility."

KAELEIGH TULL SLAMS EX JOSH DUGGAR AFTER HE'S SENTENCED TO 12 YEARS IN PRISON: 'THOSE KIDS DON'T DESERVE THAT KIND OF FATHER'

Josh's younger brother Jason later called the judge's ruling "fair" and "below the median" for his crimes, in a statement shared on his Instagram Story shortly after the sentencing.

"My heart is grieved over the choices my brother has made, his actions do not reflect that of a Christian believer and have doubtlessly defamed my Lord and Saviors name!!" he wrote. "Joshua's poor decisions have greatly effected those around him, in particular his wife, seven children and our family as a whole."
