GUILTY: Josh Duggar convicted, could face 20 years in upcoming sentencing hearing

 It was a good day for justice.

People has a pretty thorough article on how it happened.

Federal court, folks. Told you they don't f around.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


Incredibly relieved at the guilty verdict. Yesterday Jim Bob thanked people for their prayers. How about some prayers for the innocent children who were forced to do unthinkable things to turn on deviants like his son

&&&

RIGHT.

This is a news story about the sick man who created some of the videos he supposedly tried to access. At least one of the girls DIED at the hands of her perp. DIED, Jimbob.

As much as I am grateful that justice was served, I can't help thinking the fact that he was the oldest child and his parents were popping out babies yearly has had a direct effect on his psyche. Consider the fact he was probably required to care for babies and toddlers when he was very young himself. Those parents failed him by not finding healthy outlets for his curiosity.

&&&

There is a chance, who knows how much of a chance, that better parenting could have avoided this horrible situation. So in that sense, his parents really are pieces of shit, too.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...


I wonder how much actual time his sentence will be. He probably thinks 5 years tops with that big old smile.

&&&

Five years, but he prob thinks he'll be out in 18 months with good behavior.

My money is on this guy going away the full 20.

That mugshot what in the world?! Why is he doing sexy eyes and the smirk like it's Calvin Klein?!

Admin @ #3 - Excellent point about his parents!!!!

foxy said...

In federal sentencing you do the entire sentence with no time off for good behavior. Twenty years is 20 years.

foxy said...

Off topic for a minute...Jussie Smollet was also found guilty today for falsely reporting a hate crime. He faces 3 years in prison. Biusy day for courts and juries.

NJGal51 said...

I hope they put him in gen pop!

Mel said...

I'm thinking he was in shock/denial. $10 says daddy had assured him that he'd get off.

Doesn't look like he has any comprehension of the impact of this verdict on his or his wife/children's lives.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#5), maybe it's his Fundie version of Joey Tribbiani: "How YOU doin'?"

Twenty years behind bars for this hypocritical pig would suit me just fine. At least he wouldn't have any more minor daughters in his household. Heck, all 7 of his kids could be married by then.

BlueJay said...

I did watch, eons ago, their first special, their mother said she basically did just pass of the new weened baby to a baby. So that right there even then struck me as no only weird but old-fashioned. Maybe if they hadn't been so busy having babies and had been a little more diligent in raising their children this disaster could have never happened.

Ah ha, here it is.

This guilty verdict carries a MINIMUM 20 year jail sentence. The judge can choose to add more time based on the ages of the victims in the videos, and whether or not Josh has had prior similar offences.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

I'm confused on the potential sentence. Multiple articles say it's UP TO 20 years, but newsweek is saying up to 20 years for the two counts, which means up to forty years. Where do you see the minimum, Me? If it's a minimum, that's the ball game.

Ingrid said...

I found mention of a 5 Yr minimum sentence per count. One on Reddit Fundiesnark.

"General Info We Know
Josh is facing a minimum of 5 years per count. These may be served concurrently (at the same time) or consecutively (one after another). Correction: the lower charge, Possession, gets dropped in sentencing so he is facing 5 years minimum."



https://www.reddit.com/r/FundieSnarkUncensored/comments/rclnen/josh_duggar_guilty_megathread/


And the one below...Don't know if they are to be counted on for accuracy.
"The individual charges carry a minimum sentence of five years."

BlueJay said...

I do wonder how long he’ll get.

And what will Anna do now. I don’t want her or her children to have to grow up and struggle. Anyone single, a father or mother it was difficult in my time the few who braved doing it and certainly no picnic today.

I also wonder how on Earth Josh will have to pay that sum of money.

I guess I'm not sure I can trust the media report on this. Sentencing is so complex that even judges often do the math wrong. There was an ex convict and then lawyer who spent most of his time in prison reducing sentences because judges had gotten confused. It's more complicated than on paper you get 20, it's like a calculus problem.

She's lucky child protection services is even letting those kids stay in her custody.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

Admin (#17), yeah, Anna is in la-la land if she thinks Josh wasn't capable of harming his own daughters. Someone that damaged has no line they won't cross. This wasn't some teenage boy sneaking a peek at nekkid ladies to satisfy his curiosity. It was as perverted as it gets. Good lord, who's to say he DIDN'T molest any of his girls while Anna had her head in the sand? I hope and pray he never did.

Back in September, Jana was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor - 3rd degree!!!

Unknown said...

According to the Daily Mail, "Jana Duggar, 31, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child"......and will appear in court January 10.

When I first saw this I thought of Anna, Josh's wife; but now realize Jana is the oldest Duggar unmarried daughter.

foxy said...

The news on various places has reported that Jana Duggar was arrested in September to endangering a minor. They won't say what minor or what the charge is. She is due in court January 10. It seems the Duggars are going to be watched for a very long time.

That could be ANYTHING. From lack of supervision to physical abuse. The plot thickens.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Do you know what’s criminal about the Duggar parents? We can see that they have raised kids who struggle to be appropriate parents themselves in adulthood. That is a failure. You really are raising future parents with a kid.

ncgirl said...

The rumor is Jana fell asleep at home, and children under her care got out the house and were found walking down the road. The youngest Duggar sibling turned 12 today so I wonder if the children were Josh and Anna's.

I've always thought the mother put too much on Jana to take care of the household. Mothers in that cult do that. They expect older siblings to take care of the younger ones. It's really not fair to the older ones. If they were Josh's children, it wasn't fair for her to be their unpaid babysitter.

Re: Jana's case. A lot of details are not being released because apparently this case is also part of a DHS case.

Apparently, Jana was NOT driving a car. The young child was apparently found on Dowell Rd, which is NOT the street across from the Duggar property. It is actually the road that comes off of that road. So this young child may have wandered quite a ways away.

Unknown said...

Now that the mainstream media have been covering Josh's trial and verdict, as well as the charge against Jana, I expect there will be quite a focus on her and the family as a whole. I predict there will be a lot of interest in hearing more about this 31 year old woman, whose only job appears to be raising her parents' children.

Who knows if true...I read someplace that it was Josh's youngest at the time, who was around 2 years old at the time. The kid got was found unattended.

Both the child and Jana were lucky. Isn't there at least one pond as well as a swimming pool on the Duggar compound?

LisaNH said...

NJGirl...#9 My husband used to work at the NH State Prison back in the 1990's (He hated it so only worked there for 5 years). Anyway, I don't know about federal prisons but he told me that they had PC (protective custody) for certain inmates, so they were not part of the general population. PC was reserved for those convicted of any type of sex crime or child abuse (sexual and physical), prison snitches and famous (or infamous) people.

Again, I don't know if federal prisons do the same thing, have PC for certain inmates, but if they do, Josh probably won't be in general population. As most know (and as my husband witnessed when he was a corrections officer) they have their own justice system among the inmates, so I suspect Josh won't be in general population. Prison inmates do go after child predators and famous people and Josh is both.

But that doesn't mean he'll be any safer in prison. He could face some serious "prison justice". That smirk in his prison photo will wiped off his face pretty quickly.

Let’s not forget the lack of supervision that resulted in a Duggar falling 12 feet into an orchestra pit.

By the way, with regard to the special election for that Arkansas state Senate seat that Jim Bob is running for, the primary is this Tuesday. From the Daily Mail:

“Jim Bob, who previously served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2002, announced that he was running for a seat in Arkansas State Senate District 7 on October 29.

Though Jim Bob was the first to announce his candidacy, he has since been joined by several Republican challengers including Navy veteran Steve Unger and the mayor of Springdale's chief of staff Colby Fulfer. 

The Republican primary is set for December 14.

The winner of that race will face off against Democratic candidate Lisa Parks, a child welfare attorney, in the special election on February 8.”

FlimsyFlamsy said...

LisaNH (#37), nice to see you posting.

Even if Prince Joshley is given every break available, he's still in jail. The family golden boy can no longer come and go as he pleases. Even that stretch at the family friend's house before the trial was not remotely preparation for the total loss of liberty he has gotten himself into now. And he was so coddled that I can't imagine he doesn't still think his dad can finagle a way out of this.

I had the same thought. It's deeply satisfying to see this sucker in jail period.

Isolation is extremely common in such a case, I don't feel it's any kind of special treatment.

Admin @38 If I recall correctly, when the child fell the TV camera captured some of the Duggar family recording the 'event' on their personal phones instead of immediately calling for an ambulance.

That's what I recall too, I don't think the camera crew was there so they all whipped out their phones and started filming. For god sake people have died from falls less than 12 feet. He was seriously injured nonetheless!

I also remember babycakes Ma Duggar being weirdly calm about it all, like children of the corn stares.

It appears that Joshua will remain in jail until his sentencing.hot diggity dog! No chance for him to get Anna pregnant again as usual, I think! Poor stupid Anna.

Admin (#46), Jana released a snotty statement about how this is only a big deal because of her last name. Maybe that's code for, "because my brother is a convicted sex offender."

I can't stand how these people bask in the adoration of their social media followers, then become irate at negative feedback. If you want to be famous, you're stuck taking the bad with the good. Especially when you're famous for doing absolutely nothing. Don't like the negativity? Get off social media.

Very happy to hear this morning that Jim Bob lost in his primary for his run at the Senate. Enough of these evil people.

Jana probably shouldn't talk about the case while it's pending. If she's minimizing what really happened or misrepresenting the facts, they'll bring that up at her court date in January.

************
I'm seeing reports that Jim Bob "lost by a landslide", and there were only a few hundred votes cast for him. Heck, considering the size of the Duggar clan, the people who voted for him are probably all family. Josh was finally held accountable for his actions, Jim Bob crashed and burned at the polls, and there are finally consequences for forcing the girls to raise everyone else's children (although I feel for Jana). Looks like the Duggar empire is crumbling, and that makes me happy. Jim Bob and Josh's smug faces just irritate the heck out of me. Accountability was long overdue.

I blame TLC for at least part of this mess. They search far and wide for fame-seeking narcissists who have popped out too many kids just to gain attention, then throw money and fame and them. No wonder it all explodes when their heads swell just a little (or a lot) too much. It's hard to remember that TLC was once a respectable channel before Jim Bob/Josh/Kate/Toby Willis came along.

Unknown said...

According to the Daily Mail, Jim Bob only received 456 votes. That figure likely represents the Duggar extended family and in-laws. I hope he doesn't hold Jana responsible for his loss.

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/jim-bob-duggar-loses-arkansas-state-senate-primary

Jim Bob Duggar has lost the primary for an Arkansas state Senate seat after announcing his campaign in October.

The poll results from Tuesday’s election show that Colby Fulfer, who is chief of staff for the city of Springdale, won over 46% of the vote. Steve Unger won more than 36% of the vote. The two will face off in a Jan. 11 primary runoff. Duggar drew roughly 15% of the vote.

Fulfer was elected to the Springdale City Council in 2016 and served until 2020, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported. Unger served 31 years in the Navy. Both announced their bids in November.

They and Duggar were among four Republicans seeking their party’s nomination for the seat, which opened up following the resignation of Republican Sen. Lance Eads.

***
The Duggars are dim-witted (when it suits them) holier-than-thou pseudo Christians that get snotty when confronted or things don't go their way. They have no interest in reflecting honestly on their behavior because that would derail their next grift. Jim Bob Duggar turned off the commenting feature on his FB pages and issued a mealy mouthed statement after he lost the Senate race last night. He reportedly spent $37,000 on his campaign and received less than 500 votes out of almost 3,000 in the special election.

It also appears Jana has now changed her child endangerment plea to guilty. The Duggar empire appears to be crumbling and I am loving it. D*** TLC for putting these people on TV and enabling this cult after the first news of Josh's assaults on his sister became public knowledge.

ncgirl said...

Jill's husband, Derrick, came after Jim Bob. They're the ones who are estranged from the D family.

Realitytvkids.com ~ Administrator said...

Another thing I wish Jana would reflect on is why at 30 years old she is still "baby-sitting."

Somehow I doubt this is just a one-off thing. I think this is what she does. There's nothing wrong with being a childcare worker--unless you think that's your only option and are letting good opportunities pass you by, which I'm sure is the case here.

Unknown said...

Very interesting news contained in a Daily Mail article from some people formerly close to Jim Bob; including Jill's husband Derick. "Jill Duggar's husband Derick slams her father Jim Bob for being 'verbally abusive' and a 'sell-out' - and claims his 'manipulation has resulted in what is akin to human trafficking'.

And that is so sad Jaime. She is by far the prettiest of the girls and I would imagine a lot of young men would agree and wish to meet her but big Daddy Jim Boob won't let any of them near her. It's all so very sad. This totally dysfunctional family that presented themselves as Christians. Disgusting.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

This conversation makes me wonder which G kid has been groomed to take care of TFW in her old age. I've always said at least one kid will leave and never come back after becoming an adult. But surely one kid is getting the preferential treatment needed to insure they stick around.

It's been a loooong time since Katie Irene has been on TV. Looks like, contrary to her opinion, you CAN go back. Did that fork finally get stuck into her?

Unknown said...

Interesting analysis in the Los Angeles Times, dated Dec. 19, "The Duggars built a wholesome reality TV empire on TLC. Now it's in ruins".

ncgirl said...

There will be a documentary on Amazon about the Duggars and other families like them. Maybe people are waking up to how harmful this lifestyle is.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

ncgirl (#67), I think the research for this documentary should have begun the moment the Duggars went on national TV with Megyn Kelly and played down Josh's "curious" behavior with his siblings by saying it happens in one out of 3 families. They thought that remark was helpful, but it was absolutely chilling.

foxy said...

Flimsy...I wonder where the Duggar's get their stats of 1 oiut of 3 families. I have 6 brothers and 3 sons. Not any of them has molested anybody. We were not suppressed like the Duggars and their cult either. We were taught right from wrong, respect, and consequences. That family is really screwed up. Even a couple of the boys were "courting" at age 17 and married at age 18. That says a lot right there for what their life is.

JB and Michelle are trying to prove to the entertainment world that they're still popular and still deserve a show. I had hoped that Josh's conviction and JB's failed campaign would give them a dose of reality (nobody's buying their crap anymore), but they're apparently still trying to find a way to make themselves attractive to a network. Sorry (not sorry) Duggars, people are not going to forgive or forget something so horrible as CP. They need to do what Kate did--just disappear.

I hope everyone is warm and safe out there! We got piles of snow dumped on us here in the DC 'burbs, and there are people who have been stuck in their cars on I-95 in Virginia for nearly 24 hours. That's frightening--no food or water, no bathrooms, probably running out of gas so no heat. My prayers are going out to them.

I wish I could have high hopes for 2022, but...Covid is still rampant, the economy is in terrible shape, crime is soaring, and Biden is in the White House. It's hard to be optimistic. On the positive side, however--we enjoyed our first holiday season with TWO beautiful grandbabies! We have to hope/work for something better--for their sakes.

I checked out the pictures, and man, Kate is looking rough! The article says she's a nurse, but the only supporting information is that she renewed her nursing license in June. She's renewed her license many times over the years without working in nursing, so I'm not convinced that she has a job. She's pictured walking Nanook, but no sign of Mak or Shoka. hmmm.... It looks like Leah has a job at Chipotle--good for her.

The tups will be 18 in just 4 months. Wow. Mommy can no longer sell their childhoods to the highest bidder. Makes me wonder, though--she made it sound like Jon interfered with their ability to film, but now they will be free to film if they choose--unless nobody wants to film them. which I believe is the true situation. She'd never admit that nobody is interested in her, so as always, she blames Jon. No more of that!

While she may have received her North Carolina nursing license, the article doesn't actually say she is working. I pity anyone under the care of Nurse Ratched.

Layla I bet that's why Kate called the Daily Mail. I bet she's been pitching a birthday/ catch up with the Gosselins special because she can finally film the kids again in May. TLC could bite because they always have. But oh I hope not. At least the tups have regular jobs or so it would seem.

I was thinking the same thing. Looking at the clothing changes, it's 2-3 days. Why would anyone spend that amount if time in Podunk, NC taking pictures of a has-been putting gas in her car? I suspect she set it up. Reminding the entertainment world that the tups will be free for filming very soon! Bring your offers! I'm sure she's running short of money by now, and the last thing she wants is to have to go back to nursing. She bought the NC house in April of 2018. that's at the exact time that TLC announced the dating show. She must have thought that she'd get several seasons of that, plus filming of K+8 besides, so she'd have no problem paying for both houses. What a surprise it must have been for her when she only got 6 episodes total of the dating show, and one of K+8 before it all came to a halt. Then came all the expensive court stuff over filming the kids, two mortgages without a job for more than a year, and then the other court case with her former employee. Ouch. She couldn't unload the house in PA fast enough, and even the money she made off the sale will only last so long.

I hate knowing that Leah's job has been made public. Now everyone knows that, even though she's almost 18, she still has Mommy driving her to work. I checked out Mady's TikTok, and she posted there that she bought alcohol and had to show her learner's permit as proof of her age. Mady is 21! Meanwhile the kids with Jon both have jobs, driver's licenses, and cars.

According to the Daily Mail, records show that Jana Duggar paid an $890. fine after pleading not guilty to her child endangerment charge and has avoided her scheduled January 10 court date.

Looking at those pictures made me wonder whatever happened to Chris the Pap. TFW was always camera-ready in his pictures. No gladiator sandals in these Daily Mail shots, huh?

So either she doesn’t have a job but her kid does and is still the one working, or she actually did finally go back to being a nurse. And had a dose of actuality that you can go back and looks, well, more her age instead of that spin out Barbie ready for her next call.

Some of the tabloids are saying Kate IS working as a nurse. I wonder if they made that leap based on her nursing license (which she has always kept current) or if they know she actually has a job. Which would shock me.

Just saw the dailymail pictures.It looks like leah is the tup that works at chipotle.Hope i don't sound mean but she got big.

jamezvader1194,

I just hope Kate doesn't torment Leah about her weight. She was absolutely vicious about Jon's weight when they were married. Some of her comments just made me cringe. If it were the other way around--a man berating a woman about her weight--people would have been outraged. But, as always, this is Kate so people overlooked her nastiness. If she said such horrible things on camera, what was she saying in private? Let's hope she has some sort of filter when it comes to her kids.

It's nice to see Leah working in a restaurant/food service environment. She said for years that she wanted to own a bakery someday, and this could be an opportunity for her to learn more about that kind of business. Good luck to her!

Layla,

Unfortunately, Kate probably doesn't keep her thoughts to herself. Remember, she use to when Collin was 2-3 years old be astonished how much he could eat? In her book I do remember she was shocked her kids would eat three or four helpings. We all saw the small portions she gave out. I never saw her allow her own children serve themselves even when they seemed capable.

I think her daughter looks fine. Not everyone is or needs to be thin and she's 17 she's still growing. But leave it to Kate I'm sure not to be exactly fair.

There's an article about Mady talking about her Asian heritage in People.

I think that’s the most authentic mady has ever been. I appreciate her vulnerability.

Mel said...

Sure hits the heartstrings. And on top of all that she had her lunatic mother acting like a banshee on national TV.

Makes you have even more heartbreak over Colin. Kid didn't stand a chance.

Mady is 25% Korean not 50%. Jon is 50% Korean. I wonder if this means she will finally smarten up and see what her mother put all those kids through and make amends with her dad and that side of the family. I hope she continues to mature and becomes less bitter and more enlightened on her childhood. Sad

Good to see Mady has embraced her full heritage.
