'19 Kids & Counting' Reality Star Josh Duggar Allegedly Sexually Abused a Child

The Duggar family may not be as "wholesome" as they portray themselves to be on television. According to reports, Josh Duggar, the eldest of the '19 Kids & Counting' is an alleged sexual offender. Josh Duggar war reportedly brought to the police after his father saw him leaving an underage girl's bedroom and learned "something inappropriate" had happened. But, the case was never closed, according to In Touch Magazine, due to a series of "bizzare" events.
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. When the state trooper ran into trouble, someone from the Arkansas State Police alerted the Child Abuse Hotline about the Duggar situation that had been sitting inactive. That’s when the Crimes Against Children Division and Springdale Police Department got involved. By then 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.
Sgt. Darrel Hignite, who is believed to have led the investigation into Duggar's alleged sexual abuse case, would not comment on the case. Neither Duggar nor his family have commented on the allegations. Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @projectcasting.
