Toby became well-known after he and his wife Brenda’s 12 children auditioned on Season 9 of America’s Got Talent.
The large musical family captured the hearts of America so much that TLC gave them their own reality show, The Willis Family, featuring their hectic home life in Tennessee as well as taking the family on the road to do concerts across the country as The Willis Clan.
Willis was first arrested back in September of 2016 for raping an underage female twelve years ago.
The TLC star was picked up by the Greenville Police Department in Kentucky after fleeing from Tenessee.
Toby later ended up pleading guilty to the charges and received two 25-year sentences on two and two 40-year-sentences on the other two charges. The sentences are allowed to be served concurrently, so he only has to serve a total of 40 years.
