The aftermath is being dealt with. In the wake of Josh Duggar’s child pornography scandal, his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, have spoken out frequently about their feelings on the subject.

“We appreciate your continued prayers for our family during this difficult time,” the statement said.

Josh Duggar, who is married to Anna Duggar and has seven children, was arrested without bail earlier that month on charges of receiving and possessing child sexual abuse material. Josh was found guilty and convicted in December 2021 after a trial in his home state of Arkansas.

“This whole ordeal has been extremely painful,” Jim Bob and Michelle said.


The political activist’s sentencing was set for April 2022, but due to COVID-19 precautions and delays, a judge granted his motion to postpone the proceedings until May. For each count, he faces up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
