A shocking new report claims that Josh Duggar allegedly fondled 5 little girls while they were sleeping, and that his own father, Jim Bob Duggar, caught him and brought him to the police. Now, an official copy of the horrifying police report has leaked online.
Josh Duggar, 27, is best known as one of the stars of 19 Kids & Counting, but his dark past is quickly overshadowing his reality television fame. A copy of the 2006 report from the Springdale Police Department reveals that Josh was accused of “forcible fondling” five different girls when he was as young as 14 years old, although the victims identities have not been released due to their age. This news is incredibly troubling, especially because Josh is a father of three with his wife, Anna Duggar, who is pregnant with their fourth child.
Josh Duggar Allegedly Molested 5 Minor Girls — Police Report
News of the eldest Duggar child, Josh, being accused of inappropriately touching a minor female when he was underage was first reported by InTouch Weekly. Now, a police report from Dec. 2006 confirms that he was, in fact, accused of touching up to 5 little girls when he was approximately 14 years old — although he was never convicted.
[WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT BELOW] Here’s what the police report reveals:
— The crime/incident listed is “forcible fondling”
— Two witnesses are listed, although their information has been made private
— Five different victims are listed, although their information has also been made private
— 12 “other persons” are listed, including Josh’s parents Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar
— The report was filed after a “caller” informed them of the alleged incident
— It also states that Michelle & Jim Bob told them the incident allegedly happened 3.5 years before the report was filed
— The first incident listed allegedly occurred in March 2002
— The victims allegedly told Michelle & Jim Bob that Josh had been “fondling” their “breast and vaginas” while they were sleeping
— The report claims Jim Bob allegedly told a State Trooper about the fondling but that no report was ever filed
— Josh was allegedly sent to a “rehab” in Little Rock for 3 months, but it was not for sex offenders
When HollywoodLife reached out to Lt. Scott Lewis, Public Information Officer With The Springdale Police Department for comment, we were told that all materials concerning this case could not be released to the public at this time. “An injunction has been filed and at this time, I’m unable to release the report. I would be able to release the report to Arkansas residents who request it, but since the injunction, I can no longer do that.”
How This Duggar Incident Was Revealed
Interestingly enough, it also reveals that the alleged molestations were revealed in a letter written by an unidentified victim. The letter was placed inside of a book, which was later loaned to a member of the church the Duggar family was a part of at the time.
Whoever had the letter not only sent it to the police, but also sent it to Oprah‘s Harpo Studios because the Duggar family was reportedly in Chicago, Ill. filming an interview for her talk show at the time. Then, once Harpo was alerted of the alleged sexual misconduct, they sent what they received to the Department of Human Services.
To make matters even worse, it has been reported that the Arkansas State Trooper Jim Bob reported Josh to is Joseph Hutchens — a disgraced officer who is currently serving almost 60 years in prison for child pornography charges, according to Radar Online.
