Yesterday I was telling a friend that I am sure In Touch Weekly magazine has likely got a pile of documents and bombshells still to release on the Josh Duggar sexually molests girls story and that we’re going to see new revelations released each Wednesday morn until their sales slack off. Especially this morning as today is the day that Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar will be appearing on Fox News tonight to try and explain their actions in the face of Josh’s sex crimes.
Like clockwork In Touch released another set of police reports with new allegations and details. Josh confessed no less than three times and the Duggar parents did cover up the crime until the statute of limitations ran out. They should have been charged with Permitting the abuse of a minor and served up to six years in jail. Sadly, that didn’t happened. What happened was that they got their own reality television show on The Learning Channel and proceeded to push their faith and Quiverfull lifestyle into the faces of an ignorant nation.
From In Touch:
The new report is from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and was obtained by In Touch using the Freedom of Information Act. In Touch broke the story about Josh’s dark past and previously obtained and published a Springdale Police Department report about the molestations, also by using FOIA.
With fewer redactions than the first report, the Washington County Sheriff’s document makes it clear that despite Josh’s chilling confessions the Duggars waited at least 16 months before contacting authorities about the molestations, even though the behavior was continuing and growing worse. During that period they did not get professional counseling for Josh or his victims. Legal experts tell In Touch that Jim Bob and Michelle could have faced six years in prison for their inaction, if the statute of limitations had not expired.
