Controversies Surrounding Siblings
Josh Duggar Career Details
The Duggar Family started a popular TLC reality show called “19 Kids and Counting.” The show gained in popularity when trouble hit in 2015.
That year it was disclosed that Josh had molested five underage girls as a minor. Among the victims were his sisters Jill, Jessa, and Joy-Anna. The TLC show was canceled and Josh confessed to cheating on his wife via watching pornography.
At this time, the reality TV star disappeared from the limelight and was admitted to a faith-based correction facility. It was supposed that he and Anna would divorce, but the couple went for marriage counselling, Josh’s sisters spoke out about the controversy. They expressed that even though they had forgiven their brother for violating them, they had lost all trust in him.
In 2018 Josh started participating in family events again. His family has forgiven him, and that his wife is staying by his side has made him a changed man. The public is still undecided about whether to forgive him or brand him as a child molester forever.
There is still trouble on the horizon. Josh Duggar is awaiting trial on charges that he downloaded and possessed child pornography.
