handcuffed Josh Duggar, 33, searched & booked into JAIL after he’s found guilty in child pornography

Josh Duggar could be seen being searched and booked into jail on Thursday in a new video after he was found guilty in his child pornography trial.

The 33-year-old was read a guilty verdict on charges of both possessing and receiving child pornography, stemming from his April arrest.

A video inside the jail showed Josh being led into the booking area by one officer whiile being flanked behind him by two others.

Handcuffed, he held his hands behind his back and was forced to face the wall and spread his legs, shoulder-with apart.

The officer then began searching Josh, inspecting every aspect of his clothing and patting him down.

The other two watched their colleague from the other side of the room.

After the search was completed, Josh’s hands were freed and he was directed to sit down on the bench for the rest of the booking.

He was able to release his hands from behind his back, as he appeared to be asked to use them to stretch open his mouth, bending his lips up and down, as the officer looked inside.

While still sitting, the ex Counting On alum had to take off his shoes and socks as the search continued.

After being found guilty of both possessing and receiving child pornography at his trial on Thursday morning, Josh was ordered straight into custody.

Josh looked back at his family when the court read out that he was found guilty.

Though he didn’t cry, Josh was “teary-eyed” and “solemn” as he was cuffed, according to The Sun's reporter at the scene.

As he was being taken away, he stopped to tell his wife Anna that he “loved” her.

Though he was "teary-eyed" in court, he smiled for his mugshot photo.

Family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar consoled Anna, despite her appearing “completely stoic” through it all.

He gave his daughter-in-law a hug before leaving court with his son Justin and his wife Claire.

In the courtroom, Justin was unable to fight back his tears and cried as he watched his older sibling being taken into custody.

The family was seen walking all together outside as they rushed to a waiting car after the trial ended.

They kept quiet as they piled into the vehicle and left the courthouse behind.

Judge Timothy L Brooks said that he plans to sentence Josh in four months time.

He added: "Mr Duggar 100 percent has been compliant awaiting trial.

"I appreciate that and I wanted to acknowledge that however because of the guilty offenses he must be detained regardless of flight risk so there will be a mandatory detention.

"The Marshals will set that up."

The guilty verdict is the culmination of a nearly two-week trial that saw graphic and disturbing details and testimony.

Josh’s lawyer gave a statement after the verdict to reveal that they plan to appeal.

Defense attorney Justin Gelfand said outside of the courthouse on Thursday: "We respect the jury's verdict and we look forward to continuing this fight on appeal.

"We plan to appeal at the appropriate time."

The disgraced reality star was arrested back in April after Homeland Security raided his now-shuttered used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas.
