JOSH DUGGAR’s child pornography trial began this week, and his estranged sister Jill and brother Jedidiah may testify as witnesses in the case as Jill’s husband Derick Dillard appeared in the courtroom on Wednesday.

Jill and Jedidiah are set to testify this week, however, it is not clear at the moment if it will be for the prosecution or the defense.

A Sun reporter revealed that Derick was sitting in the family section in the courtroom on Wednesday.

The former reality TV star on “19 Kids and Counting” was charged earlier this year with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography and arrived at court with his wife, Anna Duggar, on Tuesday.

Josh, who has pleaded not guilty, was accused of possessing sick images of child pornography that were “the worst of the worst” that authorities had ever seen.

It has been said that Josh’s trial could last until December 3. If found guilty, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
