Josh Duggar accused of child molestation of his sisters, incidents were numerous and some were felonies

Some of the facts as we know them so far:

  • Multiple times, Josh molested five girls who lived in the family home in 2002, presumably his sisters.
  • The incidents occurred while the minors were sleeping. Some of the incidents were classified as felonies.
  • Church elders did not reach out to law enforcement
  • In 2006, producers from Oprah contacted child services after hearing about the incidents. (Thank you, Oprah producers, for doing the moral and just thing for the victims.)
  • Josh went to counseling and "sought after God."
  • Josh has resigned from the PAC the Family Research Counsel
  • In a statement the Duggars said Josh made mistakes that shocked the family, and they were addressed in counseling, and of course, they sought God.
  • TLC has not released a statement other than to refer to the Duggar's statement.
