Josh Duggar Sentenced to 151 Months

Following court proceedings that began at 9:30am and ran into the mid afternoon, Josh Duggar received a sentence. The Sun reported live during during the hearing and released the news of the sentence moments ago. The former reality TV star received 151 months in jail, which amounts to 12 years 7 months.

  1. Viewing the sexual assault and torture of babies is only worth 12 years?

  2. So glad that the family can now move forward. I highly doubt his appeal will result in a new trial or changes to the sentence imposed. I feel for Anna, seven children, living with her in laws and no means of independent support. I do hope she will allow herself and her children professional counseling. There are obvious issues within the Duggar family that I believe make it a less than ideal environment to raise her (Anna's) children? All I can do is pray and hope for the best for all of them.

    1. She can get a job and have independent support. She can do what a lot of other single moms in this country have to do.

  3. When all is said and done Josh's family has been terribly hurt by this mess. I feel for his children and for Anna in particular, having to explain why daddy won't be coming home.

  4. I do hope Anna gets some counseling about this. She seems completely in denial. Josh was found guilty of accessing pictures and videos of atrocity made against children. Her letter to the judge starting he had a tender heart and a servants heart worry me. Not only has he committed adultery, but he has viewed vile material where innocent children were harmed. There is nothing tender about that.

    1. The "servant's heart" language is simply boilerplate. It makes me sick to hear her talk about depraved Josh that way.

  5. At least Josh got more than I thought he might get. Prayers for Anna and children.

  6. Glad to see he got longer than the ridiculous five years his family wanted, but he should have gotten the full twenty years. He should never be allowed around children again.

    1. He shouldn't be allowed around a computer ever again and it's good that the judge added that stipulation for 20 years after release.

    1. Other reports say that for federal crimes they have to serve at least 85% in prison

  9. Glad justice has prevailed. He deserves to be in jail for what he did to his family years ago and now.

  11. It makes me so sick to my stomach to have read those letters from Anna and Michelle (and others), and to think that NONE of them have acknowledged the victims in the situation. Some of the kids have thankfully, but that core group around Josh hasn't said a word. They talk about how great he is, and never say anything about how terrible he has become. It's disingenuous.

  13. This entire situation is just sad. I hope that the victims of these crimes heal and that their families heal as well. Moving forward, I hope that Anna and her children will have the support which they will need.

  14. The name of the film company, the names of their staff, the names of all others who watched the videos need to be made public so they can be shamed and their parents be vilified the way Josh and his parents are being vilified. I find it despicable there is no public outcry for the producers and makers of the videos nor the website that made the videos public, just Josh and his parents being blamed.

    1. Alberta Rose, I may be wrong but I don’t think a production company makes the videos. Many, if not all are made by individual degenerates who then sell them online in the dark recesses of the internet. IMO Josh should be vilified. What he did is illegal, & rightly so as infants & children are subjected to horrific sexual abuse for the perverted pleasure of evil people.

    2. Film company? Staff? Any film company would know that producing such material is against the law. And the authorities would crack down and charge them. As for others watching the material, the authorities do everything they can to find those who view and download this disgusting material. Interpol, the RCMP, and the FBI all work together since this material crosses borders. @1:21 is correct. This material is produced by sick individuals who post it on the dark web.

    3. Since there's no way to know who actually made or posted the videos Josh viewed the responsible parties usually escape the authorities who would punish them if they could.

    4. If there weren't people like Josh creating a market for this kind of filth and crimes against children, there wouldn't be other reprobates making the content for them to watch.

    5. The person who made one of the videos has been caught, in another country.

  15. I feel bad for Michelle and Anna. God Bless them.

    1. I feel like there simply isn't much to say. The Duggar era is over.
      Ellie writes in her personal blog more - plus with two children I bet she's busier than in the past.

  20. I heard that Josh has been transferred to prison. Good. Seems like reality has set in for him and he will find that his life is not good. That's what going to prison is all about - punishment.
