"19 Kids and Counting" Son Named in Underage Sex Probe

Duggar family freak show

Once again it seems we are seeing the hypocrisy of those who seek to meddle in the lives of LGBT individuals and limit our civil rights.  The infamous Duggar family of "19 Kids and Counting" fame - or infamy depending on one's perspective - has been been in the forefront of supporting anti-gay Republican candidates such as the always foul Ken Cuccinelli and has made robo calls urging citizens to vote against gay rights initiatives.  Now it seems that rather than meddling the sex lives of others, the Duggars should have been minding things within the own family.  As In Touch is reporting, Josh Duggar named in a police report as the “alleged offender” in an underage sexual abuse probe.  Here are article highlights (Note: (i) the police officer who failed to follow up initially has been arrested himself on child pornography charges, and (ii) Josh Duggar is a lobbyist for hate group Family Research Council):
Josh Duggar of the TLC hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting was named in a police report as the “alleged offender” in an underage sexual abuse probe, In Touch magazine is reporting exclusively.

The charge being pursued while Josh was a minor was sexual assault in the fourth degree, multiple sources who have seen the police report and are familiar with the case told In Touch. According to the report, Josh was brought into the Arkansas State Police by his father, Jim Bob, who said he caught him leaving a young girl’s bedroom and “learned something inappropriate happened,” one source said.

A bizarre turn of events prevented police and prosecutors from finishing their investigation and possibly prosecuting. The state trooper who originally took the report about Josh shortly before 2005 never followed up. That state trooper was later convicted on child pornography charges and is serving a 56-year prison sentence. . . . . the three-year statute of limitations had passed and it would not have been possible to pursue prosecution of Josh if the allegations warranted, so the investigation was discontinued. “A technicality prevented any further action,” a source familiar with the case told In Touch. “That’s been the biggest regret in all of this.” (The statute of limitations has since been lengthened.)

Rumors about Josh have swirled for years, but In Touch’s investigation has uncovered the secret he has been hiding. “I saw and read the report and it clearly stated that Jim Bob brought his son Josh into the Arkansas State Police and spoke to a state trooper about Josh’s involvement in alleged inappropriate touching with a minor,” one source told In Touch.

The first report was filed shortly before 2005. Josh and his wife, Anna, have three children and live in Washington, D.C., where he is a lobbyist for the Family Research Council.
Less popping out babies like rabbits and more parenting time focused on the gaggle of children these freaks have produced seeming would have been in order.
