Josh was immediately cuffed and transported from court to Washington County Jail in Arkansas following his bombshell guilty verdict last year on Thursday, December 9. Now, due to COVID safety protocols, the disgraced TV personality will not even be allowed a birthday visit from his family.

"There are no visits in-person right now because of Covid," a source from the jail explained to The Sun. "Loved ones can set up video chats."

The source added, "The jail doesn’t do anything special for inmate birthdays," noting this includes not offering any unique meal or dessert options because the jail menu is already locked in on a daily rotating schedule.

Other than a potential video chat with his wife Anna — the couple tied the knot in 2008 and share Mackynzie, 11, Michael, 9, Marcus, 7, Meredith, 5, Mason, 3, Maryella, 2, and Madyson, 4 months — family is allowed to send gifts to inmates through a service called Jail ATM.

Loved ones are currently able to send care packages with a variety of snacks and beverages, including the "Salty Care Pack" — an assortment of chips such as Doritos, Cheetos and Fritos — and the "A.M. Delight Care Pack," which offers various breakfast items including cappuccino packets, creamer, donuts and bagels.

This comes as the former reality star's legal team is hard at work to fight for a chance at a new trial after they dubbed the guilty verdict "unconstitutional."

"This is the rare case where a criminal defendant was deprived of a significant constitutional rights and the law requires a new trial," the court document reportedly read. "Instead of actually grappling with the core of Duggar's arguments, the Government sidesteps the issues and mischaracterizes Duggar's arguments in an attempt to more readily refute them."

Josh is set to appear in court for his sentencing hearing in April. He faces up to 20 years in prison for each count.
