Josh Duggar Will NEVER Be Rehabilitated by Enabling Relatives, Prosecution Argues

We are only days away from Josh Duggar’s sentencing hearing.

The prosecution, like most of the moral world, is asking that this dangerous creep receive the maximum of 20 years.

Meanwhile, Josh’s closest relatives, including his mother and his wife, are begging the court to let him off with a 5 year sentence.

While “5 years” is the kind of phrase that likely makes Josh’s ears perk up, the prosecution is putting his sympathizers on blast.

Josh Duggar has been convicted of receiving and possessing child sex-abuse material, known as CSAM.

It is important to emphasize this, because after the case was so thoroughly proven in excruciating detail in court, his guilt is not in question.

The courts now must decide whether Josh should go home in a few years to a household full of children, or remain safely locked away for as long as the law permits.

With the sentencing hearing to be held on May 25, Josh’s team is asking for only five years.

His wife, who seems so hopelessly brainwashed that she cannot see any path before her except endless devotion to him, begged the judge for leniency in a letter.

Josh’s mother, Michelle, who is at least partially responsible for who and what he is due to raising him in a cult, asked for the same in a letter of her own.

This week, the prosecution responded to this ridiculous request, taking aim at the claims made in the letters and the nutjobs who penned them.

“He claims that the writers are ‘extremely supportive while fully aware of his conviction[s],’” prosecutors noted, according to The Sun.

“‘And that this ‘will enable him to make the most of the rest of his life and to work hard to ensure that his children’s lives are impacted as little as is possible’ by his trafficking in CSAM,” they continued.

As we previously reported, Josh’s lingering supporters blamed his heinous crimes upon “challenges” that followed his reality TV fame.

The prosecution, however, says that these flimsy excuses “only underscore the appropriateness of the Government’s sentencing recommendations.

Prosecutors aregue that: “Indeed, his supportive family and public-facing and privileged lifestyle make his pattern of criminal conduct all the more baffling.”

“Despite achieving some level of fame through reality television as an adult,” the prosecution noted.

The response continued: “he is better known at this point for his behavior outside his family’s show.”

The prosecution noted that this is “including his sexual improprieties and criminal sexual conduct.”

The prosecution could not help but observe (like the rest of us) that all of these gushing letters begging for leniency tiptoed around or flat-out ignored the nature of Josh’s crimes.

They also did not delve into his past history of molesting little girls in person, which the prosecution referred to as his “sexual proclivities towards prepubescent girls.”

Prosecutors argue that it’s unlikely that Josh could find accountability or helpful treatment from a family that that can’t even discuss his crimes — which of course has been the case in the past.

“In fact, given the apparent success of his blame tactics with some of the individuals he intends to surround himself with after his release from incarceration,” the prosecution noted.

“it is not just unlikely– it is unconceivable,” the legal response continued, that Josh would be rehabilitated and prevented from re-offending.

The prosecution did acknowledge that Josh’s sentence will “undoubtedly reverberate through his immediate and extended family,” but that is almost always the case — and, in this rare instance, probably a good thing.

Jeremy Vuolo Admits Jim Bob and Michelle Confronted Jinger Duggar Over "Immodesty"

Time after time, Jinger Duggar has defied Jim Bob and the cult’s twisted rules by wearing normal human clothing.

Technically, it’s permitted, in the sense that her “lord husband” Jeremy Vuolo gives her “permission” to participate in society in certain ways.

But fans and wary critics alike have long wondered if there’s any truth to the rumors that Jim Bob and Michelle take issue with Jinger’s attire.

The answer is yes. Jeremy testified to that effect in court, describing a confrontation between his in-laws and his wife.

Let’s first make it clear that we’re not talking about Jinger starting an OnlyFans, posting non-facial orifices on Twitter, or trying to #FreeTheNipple on Instagram.

Those are all perfectly fine things to do for anyone who wishes to.

But Jinger’s “violations” are a little harder to explain to those unfamiliar with the Duggar family’s twisted worldview.

Jinger wears pants, she has styled and dyed her hair, and she and her husband have even shared photos of themselves drinking moderately.

Only in the cultural extremes of a fundamentalist cult are these kinds of activities seen as scandalous.

But that is Jinger’s background. Time after time, things like baring her shoulders has taken longtime fans aback, purely because they know the sexist rules by which Jinger was raised.

As for the confrontation, The Sun got their hands on unsealed court documents from the now-dismissed case in Arkansas.

Jinger’s husband, Jeremy, offered a deposition during the case last year, and was asked about Jim Bob and Michelle.

When asked if his in-laws had expressed “opinions about any different convictions” that he and Jinger have, he answered “yes.”

Jeremy provided an example as part of his deposition: “They’ve spoken to us about – what was it – I guess modesty is one.”

He admitted: “We’ve had a couple of conversations.”

Jeremy then answered “yes” when the attorney asked about Jinger choosing to “wear pants on occasion.”

Jeremy confirmed what the entire world already knows — that Michelle does not wear pants.

“Is that the question of modesty that they talk to you about; pants versus skirts?” the attorney asked.

“In a way, yes. I mean, not that exact word,” Jeremy answered.

“They just shared their – their thoughts on women wearing dresses, I guess,” Jeremy summarized.

He cited: “I remember Mrs. Duggar just sharing her own personal journey of modesty.”

Jeremy then disagreed with the idea that Jinger in any way “dresses in an immodest way.”

Jeremy’s deposition also touched on other topics, and so did Jinger.

They acknowledged that they are not intent upon breeding enough children to populate a small nation in the way that Jim Bob and Michelle are.

He and Jinger are very conservative Christians by normal societal standards, but less extreme than the cult in which Jinger grew up.

Jeremy was also asked about emotional distance from his in-laws, particularly in light of the move to California.

“There – perhaps. I think, though, diagnosing that would be difficult,” he admitted.

““I think as you grow and have your own family, kids, and life,” Jeremy said. “You know, you go from, like, seeing everyone every day to talking to everyone every day to, you know.”

Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar Sell Home as Due Date Approaches

Earlier this year, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard revealed that they are selling their home.

While they’re sorry to see the property go, they know that they need to uproot for Derick’s ne wjob.

Besides, their family is growing. Jill’s due date is only a couple of months away.

Now, the Dillards have successfully sold their home.

Derick and Jill purchased the four-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,486 square foot house more than three years ago, in April of 2019.

The house in Lowell, Arkansas is on a sizable 8,276 square foot plot of land.

While the house is arguably large enough for the soon-to-be family of five, Derick’s new job required a move.

In Touch Weekly reports that the sale went through on May 12.

The closing price was officially listed at $305,000.

While today’s housing market has skyrocketing prices spurred on by corporations buying up neighborhoods, not all markets are the same.

The one-story brick home includes an open floor plan, an eat-in kitchen, and a covered rear-facing patio.

We have all seen the fenced backyard over the past few years — great for entertaining, privacy, or having pets or children.

The Dillards listed the specific plants in their backyard when advertising their home, indicating no plans to take these plants with them.

Israel David is 7 years old. Samuel is 3.

Soon, they will both have a baby brother.

A four-bedroom house is generally enough for a family that size (if you don’t need a guest room), but there’s a chance that the move could lead to an upgrade.

Jill and Derick will likely show off their new home in the not-so-distant future.

They likely had to weigh many different considerations before deciding where to live, including the size of their growing family.

Derick’s new job may have dictated where they move. Other factors, like finances, could determine other specifics.

Jill’s recent legal battle revealed that she makes only about $10k per year in sponsorships and endorsement deals.

That’s a nice and relatively easy bit of extra money to have lying around, but it’s not enough to qualify as a full-time job (or full-time influencer)

Right now, most families need to have both partners working. Depending upon Derick’s new salary, they might need to make difficult choices.

The truth is that Jill, who spent many years as a reality star before she and Derick left Counting On, should have more of a cushion than she probably does.

Even child reality stars (which, not to get on my soapbox, should not be a legal thing) usually benefit from their years of on-screen work.

The Gosselin sextuplets recently turned 18, attaining the first payout on their reality TV earnings. But that’s not how things work for the Duggars.

As Derick has long complained, Jim Bob pocketed the money from the reality series himself, selling the idea to his family as a form of religious “service.”

One can easily imagine how a manipulative patriarch could spin a reality career into a sort of “missionary” work to his cult-raised offspring.

While Jim Bob does give his adult children expensive gifts sometimes (in order to keep them under his control), the right thing to do would have just been paying everyone directly for their work.

Jill and Derick are doing okay, but it’s hard to think about any of this — home shopping, how much Jill makes through Instagram endorsements, etc — without remembering how she was robbed.

Worse still, of course, is that she was denied a real education or the chance to have normal life experiences during her cult upbringing.

Jill will never get another childhood, and can only play the hand that her toxic parents dealt her. It’s a shame.

Jana Duggar Flashes Bare Legs, Potentially "Defrauding" Thousands According to Jim Bob

Despite being a grown woman who allegedly runs her own successful business, Jana Duggar is not an “adult” in Jim Bob’s eyes.

According to the doctrine of the cult, church, and family, Jana remains part of Jim Bob’s household until she is married off — to a husband of his choosing.

Some of her sisters are allowed to “break” Jim Bob’s strict rules because their new husbands permit it.

But when Jana is showing this much leg, one has to wonder if the extreme Duggar lifestyle is finally coming apart at the seams.

Jana Duggar is judicious about what she actually posts on social media.

(Some fans still speculate about how much control she actually has over the account, but that’s neither here nor there)

She does pop up sometimes on other people’s pages, which happened after she attended a friend’s wedding.

Jana wore a light blue dress under a tan jacket.

While the jacket kept her arms from being bared to the world, the dress only comes to just below her knees.

When seated, it falls above her knees, baring much more leg than anyone is accustomed to seeing from a Duggar daughter — especially one who is still living at home.

The photo was shared on the Instagram Story of Jana’s friend, Emily Ann Raynes.

Jana’s sister-in-law, Hannah Duggar, is also in the photo, wearing a more strictly modest dress of a similar color.

And Jana’s brother, Jeremiah, was also present for this sensational baring of Jana’s knees.

Obviously, knees are just joints. They’re not sexual, they’re not illicit, and if we’re being honest, most of them are deeply ugly.

They are one of the first body parts that people begin to loathe as they enter their thirties and forties, and serve few if any direct roles in sex.

However, for Jana to flash hers to the camera, out in public, and in front of her brother … of course fans did not ignore it. How could they?

From the Duggar family’s ominous debut onto reality television, the dress code drew almost as much attention as the ever-expanding brood of offspring.

Part of the issue is the absurd (and overwhelmingly sexist) rules themselves.

While men are relegated to awkward dad jeans and unflattering shirts, women had more rules — on their hairstyles, makeup, pants, shirts, and more.

Part of that was always to avoid showing skin or outlining the form of their bodies.

This doesn’t simply refer to cleavage or crop tops or cameltoe or leggings, but extremely normal clothes — like shorts.

For a Duggar daughter to bare her arms or more than a few inches of leg was forbidden … at least, it used to be.

More shocking than the rules themselves was the sick, twisted rationale behind it, as explained by Michelle all of those years ago.

If someone were to see Jana’s legs and desire her carnally, Jana would not, per her fundamentalist beliefs, be permitted to act upon it — even if she wanted to.

Because she is not married to the man who saw the devil’s appendages, cult logic says that she would have enticed him to want things that she could not give — and thus “defrauded” him.

That deranged way of thinking defined so much of the Duggar family’s lives, and ties into rape culture, misogyny, and more.

(Josh is not the only sexual predator in their cult — he is only the most famous one who’s been caught)

Maybe Jana is old enough that her parents have a hard time stopping her from “defrauding” passersby. Or maybe they have bigger things to worry about these days.
