The Duggars first rose to fame thanks to the reality show 19 Kids and Counting…
But while the family portrayed a wholesome image…
There have been quite a few scandals over the years.
So much so that TLC eventually pulled the plug on the show in 2015 following Josh Duggar’s scandal involving young children.
At the time, Josh said: “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager. I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.”
He continued, “We spoke with authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling.”
The incidents occurred when he was fourteen, in 2002 and 2003.
The family didn’t report the incidents until the statute of limitations passed in 2006. At the time Josh said he believed God showed him mercy and gave him redemption.
Then, earlier this year, Josh was arrested and charged with receiving and possessing child p****graphy.
People reports that Josh was arrested on charges of child po***graphy as he was found to have more than 200 images of children on his computer.
Homeland Security special agent Gerald Faulkner described the things found as “in the top 5 of the worst of the worst that I’ve ever had to examine,” the Daily Mail reports.
Faulkner also said that Josh downloaded files that included “a series of child sexual abuse material involving minor children.”
Despite the finding, Josh was granted jail release ahead of his trial…
And, he was also still permitted to have contact with his children.
But now, Josh’s trial has begun at the John Paul Hammerschmidt federal courthouse in Arkansas.
And people have very strong opinions about what should happen to Josh, including his cousin, Amy Duggar…
Amy Duggar has expressed her opinion that her cousin Josh should get “the ultimate sentence,” People reports.
On the day that a jury selection began for the trial, Amy took to her Instagram stories where she wrote it was “a heavy day” and will continue to be the “whole week” until “justice is served.”
In another story, she asked the Lord to “pray for the victims and for the truth to be revealed.”
“Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord, I will repay thee,” she wrote. “Please pray for the victims and for the truth to be revealed. Pray that the judge will give the ultimate sentence.”
