Anna should have no problem following the dress code, as the modest dresser is banned from wearing short skirts and dresses, crop tops, low necklines and more revealing clothing.

The facility is low-security and houses 1,751 inmates in their detention center and satellite camp, according to the Bureau of Federal Prisons. 

Seagoville has a Sex Offender Management Program (SOMP) and in 2018 it was estimated that around 40% of the inmates there were sex offenders.

REUNITED

The release comes after Josh’s wife Anna, 34, revealed she is going on a “road trip” to see her “bestie.”

Anna posted on her Instagram: “Officially 34. 14 years since I said, ‘Yes.’ Road-tripping to visit my bestie.

"'Even if' by Mercy Me on repeat. ‘Jesus will cling to you. Come what may.’"

Anna has stood by her husband, as she was in attendance at every court hearing.

COVID FEARS

The Sun previously reported Seagoville made headlines in 2020 for having over 72% of its population infected with COVID.

CNN reported in August of 2020 that at least three inmates had died at that point, with one of the inmate's family members calling the facility a "petri dish."

DANGEROUS CONDITIONS

Beyond widespread disease, there have been a number of assaults inside the prison walls over the years. 

According to a release by the Department of Justice "John Hall, 27, an Aryan Brotherhood member and inmate" at the facility, attacked and assaulted a fellow inmate because he believed he was gay. 

"Hall repeatedly punched, kicked and stomped on the victim’s face with his shod feet, a dangerous weapon, while yelling a homophobic slur.

"The victim lost consciousness during the assault and suffered multiple lacerations to his face. The victim also sustained a fractured eye socket, lost a tooth, and fractured other teeth," the release read.

In another instance, according to CBS, a correction officer was arrested for abusive sexual contact with an inmate at FCI Seagoville, the officer resigned and was sentenced to one year behind bars. 

In another instance, the Bureau of Prisons and the Seagoville warden at the time were sued by an inmate over the conditions within the facility in a civil rights action. 

In a complaint reviewed by The Sun, the inmate alleged that overcrowding exacerbated a number of conditions inmates faced inside the prison. 

The inmate, Jed Lineberry, said the overcrowding added to an "increased exposure to a violent environment," among a slew of other allegations in the federal filing.

His claims were ultimately dismissed since he had already been transferred to the Texarkana facility. 

JOSH'S SENTENCING

Honorable Judge Timothy L Brooks sentenced Josh to 151 months in prison on May 25. 

According to The Sun's court reporter, Josh appeared stoic as he received his sentence, which also includes $50,100 in fines.

As he read his decision, the judge called Josh's crimes "the sickest of the sick" to the packed courtroom.

He then said to Josh: "You have done some very bad things. But in your life as a whole, you've done good things… The true test of a man's character is what a man does when no one is watching."

Referring to Josh's insistence that he's innocent, the judge continued: "I find it aggravating about the lack of responsibility."

Judge Brooks recommended Josh participate in the Bureau of Prison's sex offender treatment program.

In the molestation police report, Jim Bob told authorities his son was sent to a Christian counseling program where he did “manual labor and had counseling.”

When prosecutors fought for a 20-year sentence on the child pornography charges, they feared Josh would not get the proper counseling and would re-offend again. 

The father of seven filed to appeal the sentence.
