The Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal is like trying to sneak around a landmine. You try, but eventually, things are just going to blow up. Another Duggar landmine exploded today when it was revealed that the family’s patriarch, Jim Bob Duggar, left out important details when discussing his son’s crime with the police. Apparently, Duggar told Joseph Hutchins (who took the report and is now in jail for possession of child pornography) that Josh Duggar “inappropriately touched” his sister while she was sleeping, clothed, and it only happened once. But it happened many times, which Duggar omitted from the police. However, the police believed him and didn’t launch a full report.
Hutchins regrets this decision now, and he wishes he could go back and fully investigate the Duggar case. Of course, he understands that his reputation is now considered a joke, which leaves us wondering if Hutchins is telling the truth about Jim Bob Duggar.
There is still no word on the fate of the TLC reality series, 19 Kids and Counting.
