Anna Dugger is reportedly spending most of her time with husband Josh Duggar while he is on home confinement ahead of his child pornography trial.

The former star of 19 Kids and Counting was arrested in April on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography, to which he pleaded not guilty. The arrest came two years after Homeland Security raided his now-closed car dealership; that incident, however, didn't lead to any charges at the time.

While awaiting trial, Duggar is staying in Arkansas with third-party custodians LaCount and Maria Reber. According to The Sun, sources say Anna is staying with her husband and his guardians while her family has "stepped in" to help take care of their six children.

"She takes them to visit him or they are looked after while she's there alone, despite what he's been charged with she refuses to believe he's guilty," one source said.

Prior to his arrest, Duggar had be "preparing himself" as the family had "known that this has been coming for weeks, per The Sun. "They are praying together for Josh and Anna, who is standing by her husband as she always has," a source told the outlet.

Duggar's trial was originally set to begin last month, but a federal judge pushed the start date to November 30, per People. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years of imprisonment and up to $250,000 in fines per charge.

Duggar made a name for himself on the reality show 19 Kids and Counting before it was canceled in 2015 following allegations that Duggar had molested five underage girls as a teenager. Its spinoff, Counting On, was canceled in June after he was arrested.
