The Duggar Sisters Are Suing Cops for Releasing Josh’s Molestation Records
They said the cops weren't allowed to release the information
When the world was introduced to the sprawling Duggar family, everyone thought they were the most traditional, clean-cut, and wholesome family in America. They had extreme Christian values, but seemed to have a love in their heart for all people unlike other Christian fundamentalists.
The the bombshell dropped; it was revealed that not only was Josh trying to cheat on his wife using dating profiles, when he was still a teen, he inappropriately touched his sisters and a babysitter between 2002 and 2003.
His parents took him to the police once they found out about it in 2006, and his victims were asked to tell their stories about what happened. Josh was not charged with a crime.
A Crime Commited
When the girls were interrogated by the police about what Josh did to them, they were still all under the age of 18 and were told that their statements would not be released to the public.
Once Josh’s web began to unravel, a tipster told celebrity gossip site In Touch about what happened. The magazine then filed a Freedom of Information Act request in 2015 to get the documents about the case and wrote many articles about the scandalous story which led to the family’s show 19 Kids and Counting being canceled.
