This week 19 Kid and Counting star, Jessa Duggar Seewald, posted a photo of her growing baby bump, but an unexpected hiccup disrupted the joy. Today, Josh Duggar, the eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19 children admitted to sexually molesting five minor girls back in 2005. Apparently, some of those girls were his sisters. According to the police report, the molestations started in about 2002, when Duggar was 14 years old. The report also claims that Duggar “fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls.” Some of his victims were asleep at the time of the assault. His parents reported him to the police ten years ago, but the story gets even stranger when you learn where they took it from there.
Jim Bob Duggar had a meeting with some of the church elders, and they agreed that his eldest son should have to undergo treatment. This sounds relatively reasonable. But later, Michelle Duggar stated that her son did not go to a treatment center but rather went with some men to do manual labor and construction for awhile. Their son sexually molested some of their underage daughters, and they sent him to do construction work. More than that, the family told the investigators on the case that the incidents strengthened their relationship with God.
Now that Duggar is 27 years old, he cannot be charged. The statute of limitations has expired.
