NewsNation shared an exclusive clip of Josh in jail. In the video, he’s with the officers at the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Arkansas. The clip was recorded as Josh was taken into custody and being searched and patted down. It’s a brief clip. In the video, he’s wearing the same shirt he wore in his mug shot, which was taken on the same day.
Josh is no longer allowed to be around minors. If he is released on bail, he will have to live somewhere without minors, which means he cannot live with his family. For now, Anna is raising their six children on her own. It’s unclear what the future of their relationship looks like. Just a few days before the arrest, Josh and Anna shared the news that they are expecting their seventh child.
