Court for the Josh Duggar’s siblings have spoken out about his incarceration. According to the judgement entered in the United States District Court Western District of Arkansas, Fayetteville Division last week, the former reality star was found guilty of receiving child pornography and possessing child pornography.
He hasn’t been sentenced yet, but he faces up to 20 years in jail.
“We are heartbroken for the victims of heinous child abuse. We are also heartbroken for Josh’s family, including his wife and wonderful children. ” Their statement started.
“We are deeply sorry for the disrespect this has brought to Christ’s name. Josh professes to be a Christian, “they penned. “When a professed disciple of Jesus is exposed as a hypocrite, many will question the integrity of Jesus himself.”
Jinger, Josh, and their siblings starred in the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting,” which focused on their huge family, which was led by parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. The show delves into the family’s devoted lifestyle, which includes refusing birth control and adhering to rigorous “courting” procedures before marriage.
According to their letter, the Violos are also “grateful that God is a God of justice who cares for the innocent and the vulnerable.”
“And, above all, he loves children, who are among the most vulnerable,” the statement concluded. Because of this, the presence of sex trafficking and child abuse is one of the most heinous atrocities conceivable. It is an evil that God despises.”
Joy-Anna and her husband Austin Forsyth posted a statement on her Instagram stories as well.
“We agree with the justice system’s decision and are grateful to the men and women who work relentlessly to safeguard children and assist in preventing child sexual abuse material,” the statement said. “Our hearts go out to all the victims of CSAM.”
Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, issued a statement on their blog the day Josh Duggar was sentenced.
“Today was a trying day for our family. Our hearts go out to the victims of child abuse or exploitation in general “It was written. “We are grateful for the hard work of law enforcement, especially detectives, forensic analysts, prosecutors, and everyone else engaged in saving children and holding those responsible for their abuse accountable.”
All of the Duggar sisters backed Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, with whom he has seven children.
The family reality programme was terminated in 2015 following claims that Josh Duggar assaulted females as a teen, including two of his sisters, Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard, who talked about the allegations in an interview with Fox News.
He was never charged as a result of those claims.
