Newly unsealed court documents detailed the questioning of Special Agent Gerald Faulkner — the agent who initially spoke with Duggar during the raid of his used car business in 2019.

Faulkner previously stated the contents found on the former television personality's computer were "in the top five of the worst of the worst that I've ever had to examine."

Now, more details have come to light as the law enforcement agent officially confirmed Duggar had been watching "rape pornography" shortly before downloading the illicit child sex abuse content that landed him behind bars, it was reported.

According to Faulkner, there was a Linux partition created on Duggar's HP computer and a TOR browser — a tool used to help keep web searches anonymous and protect online identities — was installed on the new partition, which allowed him to feel comfortable accessing illegal websites.

"At 4:58pm, TOR browser on the partition side of the HP computer was utilized to access porn sites associated with rape and files associated with child pornography," Faulkner told the court, according to documents obtained by The Sun.

Despite his guilty verdict, Duggar's legal team filed a motion on Wednesday, January 19, for acquittal or a new trial.

The reality star's lawyers are also requesting that a judge 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."

The motion continued: "Indeed, the evidence at trial established that certain files allegedly found on the HP desktop computer were never viewed by any user of the computer and that all the files at issue had been deleted shortly after being downloaded. Thus, even in the light most favorable to the Government, the jury had no evidence that Duggar personally viewed any specific portion of any of the files allegedly found on the computer."
