’19 Kids And Counting’ Another Sex SCANDAL: Duggar Girls Had Contact With Pedophile Editor

There seems to be a lot of sexual misconduct scandals surrounding the “19 Kids and Counting” family. A few months back it was revealed that the eldest Duggar son, Josh, had been accused of molesting five underage girls back in 2006.

Later, it was revealed that a Duggar family member was sued for transmitting the herpes virus.

It was also revealed that the Arkansas state trooper, Joseph Hutchens, who spoke to Josh about his sexual misconduct, ended up being imprisoned for child pornography himself.

Now it has come to light that a crew member who worked on TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” and “Kate Plus 8,” William Blankinship, was arrested and sent to prison for child pornography charges back in 2011, Radar Online reported.

Blankinship, 60, was originally facing more than 63 years in prison, but after a plea deal he was sentenced to 25-39 months in prison for possession of child pornography. The pornography depicted children as young as one-year-old.

TLC had released a statement (via Inquisitr) saying that at no time did Blankinship have any contact with the Duggar children.

“Bill Blankinship was employed by Serious Robots, with whom Figure 8 Films subcontract for editing services. Upon learning of the shocking allegations his employment was terminated. At no time was this man ever in the field or in direct contact with any of the talent for any of our productions,” the statement read.

However, as Radar Online reported, that does not seem to be the case.

In a 2010 episode of the now cancelled “19 Kids and Counting,” titled “Duggars Make a Movie,” a group of the Duggar children visited Blankinship’s place of work, Trailblazer Studios.

He did not appear on camera, but it was likely that he was in the building at the time of the visit.
