Josh Duggar’s Cousin Amy Duggar Is Praying Hard Amidst His Molestation Scandal.

He was imprisoned on child pornography charges in 2007 – just four years after he had failed to properly investigate his friend Jim Bob Duggar’s son Josh for molesting young girls in their sleep.Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s niece Amy Duggar has been praying hard in every aspect amidst her cousin’s molestation scandal — read her latest Instagram update.

The famously conservative Duggars seemed to be models of wholesome family life, but son Josh was hiding a dark past: He allegedly molested five young girls as a teen. Now, the sickening details of former Arksansas state trooper Joseph Hutchens’s offenses have emerged, including how he had pornographic photos of one of his own relatives on his camera. I’m referring, of course, to “19 Kids and Counting,” which puts literate people in mind of a baby goat factory that under similarly procreative practices would prompt charges of animal cruelty. According to new explosive court documents, Hutchens operated a Yahoo adult profile using the handle ‘dadsluv2002′, on which he claimed to be interested in a number of disturbing categories. Josh Duggar’s first cousin obliquely addressed the molestation scandal rocking her extended family this month, posting a note on social media with a simple message: “Never stop praying.” “No matter what happens in life our prayers are heard.

These included the child porn categories ‘Preschools’, ‘Kinki Kids’, ‘Child’s Play Series’, ‘Strangers With Candy’ and ‘Babyz’, and incest-themed ones like ‘Family Affairs’, Radar Online reported. He visited the website hundreds of times, and admitted communicating with a woman, dubbed ‘Miss Understood’, whom he instructed to ‘role play that she was a little girl having sex with daddy’. Her latest updates come in the wake of allegations that Josh fondled the breasts and genitals of five girls — some reportedly his sisters — back in 2002 when he was 14 years old. Right, Josh is seen in February with his wife, Anna, who is pregnant with their fourth child On the site, he also listed his hobbies as ‘putting fat objects into small holes’, cited his favorite quote as ‘Everything I enjoy is either illegal, immoral or fattening’, and listed his marital status as ‘married’. Though the immediate Duggar family has yet to post any social media updates since statements were released on the family’s Facebook account last week, both Amy and others close to the brood have addressed the controversy.

During 2004 and 2005 – when a police inquiry was launched into Hutchens’s behavior – he ‘spent considerable time on his computer viewing porn’, say other court documents, obtained by Jezebel. Jessa Duggar’s father-in-law Michael Seewald blogged about the allegations in detail this past week. “The victims of Josh’s actions should not be lost in all of this,” Ben Seewald’s father wrote on Sunday. “I want to say that the Seewald family stands with the Duggar family in solidarity. TLC has temporarily pulled all episodes of the reality show, and numerous advertisers have stated they will not allow their ads to run on the show if it returns. This despite the Duggars having raised their children by the book — home schooling, restricting access to entertainment, guiding courtships and advising that sex should await marriage, which, come to think of it, wouldn’t hurt a nation that seems to be in perpetual rut. He specifically focused on ‘prepubescent children’ engaging in sexual activity – and even admitted to police that he had pleasured himself over pornographic images of girls aged two, three, 12 and 13.

We stand with the unnamed victims of these incidents.” Like Amy, her boyfriend Dillon King has also been praying actively. “Thank you Jesus Amy wasn’t involved in the situation,” he wrote a week ago on Instagram. “Love you baby girl! The Duggars’ expectations were more or less the norm not so very long ago — and many would argue that the country would be better off if more parents were similarly engaged in their children’s lives. Praying for your family and the love ones involved.” He also shared a date night photo with Amy this week. “Love this girl, @amyduggar,” he wrote alongside a snap of the two all dressed up. “#suitnight #datenight #fancy #loveyoubabygirl.”

Other viewers most likely have been gawkers riveted by the spectacle of so much post-betrothal activity under one tent by just one couple — and the fact that no one in his or her right mind would wish 19 children on anyone. On the device, they found shocking images of a family friend’s young daughter – and one of Hutchens’s own relatives, which are thought to have then been posted online, Radar reported. ‘It is believed that this Digital Camera was used to take the pictures of the small children which we believe were posted on Joe Hutchens’ Yahoo account,’ investigator Chris Sparks said. The Duggars have been further differentiated from Mainstream America 2015 by being frequently associated with, and embraced by, the Quiverfull movement. In January 2007, Hutchens pleaded guilty to eight felony counts of possessing visual or print medium depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, and was jailed for five years.

The family also failed to receive public support from presidential candidate Rick Santorum this week, despite campaigning for the conservative former Pennsylvania senator when he previously ran for president in 2012. At the time, the family recorded a nearly three-minute ad that had various family members – including Josh – praising him for his positions on welfare reform, gun control, abortion and more. “I was sickened by it. The disturbing new details come just days after it was reported that Hutchens had claimed Jim Bob had lied to him about his eldest son Josh’s actions when he brought him to speak to him in 2003. This might explain why Jim Bob went to church elders after his son confessed to child molestation and why he later sent Josh to see Arkansas State Trooper Joe Hutchens, who lectured him but took no action.

To have gone through that is … just hard to think about.” Santorum is far from the only public person to speak out against the conservative Arkansas family. Into this perverse auto-da-fé have waltzed two Republican presidential candidates, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, presumptively the two most devout Christians among the — hey! — 19 likely Republican presidential candidates. But instead of admitting his son had inappropriately touched several girls over a year – as detailed in a 2006 police report released last week – Jim Bob said he had molested only one, he said. ‘Jim Bob explained to me that Josh inappropriately touched [a victim] while she was asleep,’ Hutchens said in an interview for InTouch Magazine. ‘He said it only happened one time.’ The prison inmate added: ‘Jim Bob sat down and Josh was crying.

Last week, it was revealed that Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle, 47, informed some of the elders at their church about Josh’s actions in 2003, before sending their son away to a faith-based healing facility. And these two candidates may not have been far-fetched in their calculations in cozying up to the family, but only if they have no ambitions beyond the primary. Nationally, neither has a ghost of a chance of becoming president for the simple reason that Americans in increasing numbers find the convergence of religion and politics distasteful if not loathsome. He said that the underage victim that he was told about during his 2003 meeting with the 19 Kids and Counting stars, and two other unidentified people, ‘should have been my first priority’. Young people, who missed the Golden Age when most people didn’t talk about their religious beliefs or their politics — and never in combination — perceive that to be religious is to be politically conservative.

Speaking to InTouch Magazine, criminal defense attorney Carmen Roberto, of Ohio, said that Jim Bob’s alleged lies could be considered child endangerment, if Hutchens’s account is correct. To a party that tends to be skeptical toward Islam and draconian about immigration, separating politics from religion would seem to be an imperative of some urgency.

At the very least, Republicans wishing to become president might steer clear of religious grandstanding and avoid association with reality show stars whose single claim to fame is having more babies than anyone else. He was never charged with a crime for the incidents as by the time police learned of the offenses the statue of limitations had passed, and his parents did not notify authorities in an official capacity.
