The judge did note, しかしながら, that if Duggartakes the stand and testifies that he did not view adult pornography or was not addicted to pornography, or if he otherwise contradicts any statement he made in the social media post in 2015, the Government may seek to leave to introduce the statement to impeach his credibility.

The judge also denied the prosecution’s motion of asking the court to bar Duggar from suggesting to the jury that someone else might have committed the crimes. “It is the Government’s burden to prove that Defendant committed the crimes set forth in the indictment beyond a reasonable doubt, and Defendant is entitled to create reasonable doubt in the jury’s minds by pointing the finger at others who may have possibly committed the crimes,” the filing states.

In terms of a motion about sequestering witnesses, Judge Brooks ruled thatany witness who has testified – including the Government’s designated case agent sitting at counsel table – is prohibited from discussing the substance or his or her own testimony with any witness who has not yet testified and been formally excused from their obligations as a witness. Defendant and his witnesses will be subject to the same sequestration rule.

He also noted thatthe Court’s rule does not limit counsel from conferring with their own witnesses and preparing them to testify.
