Josh Duggar wasn’t the only 19 Kids and Counting member with a secret.
William Blankinship — an editor who worked on 19 Kids and Counting between 2008 and 2011 and Jon and Kate Plus 8 between 2008 and 2009 — was reportedly arrested in 2011 for ten felony counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a child, as there were minors present on both of these sets at the time of his employment.

One of the many disturbing images allegedly featured a young girl under 10 with her hands duct taped as an older male performed anal sex. Another vulgar possession featured a nine-minute video of an adult male having sex with two minors.
William originally faced 63 years in prison — but his plea deal called for 25-39 months, in addition to 48 months probation. He also had to register as a sex offender and complete a sex offender program.
The crew member was banned from interacting with children who are under 16 alone.
