Josh Duggar Confessed Molesting 5-Year-Old Sister (Report)

While Megyn Kelly prepares to pitch softballs to the Duggars tonight, In Touch has obtained new police records from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office that confirm Josh Duggar molested his five-year-old sister (and others) before telling his parents who waited 16 months before contacting the authorities if you count a state trooper pal who did nothing and was later arrested for child porn as the “authorities.”

The sheriff’s document also shows the extent of Josh’s abuse. “[Redacted, Josh] told James that this had occurred 4 to 5 times and had occurred as [redacted] was sleeping on the couch.”
As In Touch reports exclusively in its new issue, despite Josh’s confession, Jim Bob and Michelle did not get him – or their daughters — counseling from a licensed mental health professional for at least 16 months. They have said the children did receive counseling but refuse to say if it was court ordered after the Families In Need of Services and the Arkansas Department of Human Services became involved in the Duggar case.
Several legal experts tell In Touch that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar could have faced up to six years in prison for their actions and been charged with Permitting Abuse of a Minor (Arkansas Code 5-27-221).

Of course, this raises several damning questions that Megyn Kelly won’t ask the Duggars because the evangelical crowd has spoken and child molesting is an honest mistake, but Caitlyn Jenner will burn in hell. #GOP2016 On top of that, Raw Story notes that Arkansas has a history of giving Christian families accused of child abuse a pass like the time State Representative Justin Harris “rehomed” – Read: Gave them away. – his adopted daughters to a man who then raped them. In my home state, a judge almost let a pastor walk on child porn charges because “he’s saying he didn’t commit any crime” – A criminal said he’s innocent in court? Holy shit, that changes everything! – and his parishioners wrote him a bunch of very nice letters. It took the prosecutor informing the court that they had him dead-to-rights on over 100 images before the pastor received a slap on the wrist. So the next time someone tries to tell you about the wholesome, intrinsic values of the “Real America,” or Bubbaville, what they really mean is a place where white Christian men can do whatever they want because it’s the Devil’s fault for making women and children so hot. That’s why he invented Baby Gap.
