Josh Duggar’s guardians are expressing concerns about their safety as he stays with them and awaits his trial. For those who don’t know, the former TLC star was arrested for the possession of child sexual abuse material. He is now out on conditions until his trial, which is on November 3o.
Josh must abide by a set of conditions. He cannot be around minors other than his own children with his wife’s supervision. He’s wearing a GPS tracking device. Also, he cannot have access to any devices that connect to the internet. Along with all of these rules, Josh has to live with guardians who will help him adhere to these conditions.
It’s safe to say that not many people would want to welcome someone with Josh’s alleged crimes into their home. So, Jim Bob Duggar’s friends, Maria and LaCount Reber stepped up. It’s unclear whether Jim Bob or Anna arranged for the Rebers to become Josh’s guardians.
As Josh’s trial approaches, more information about his arrest and the arrangements has surfaced. Now, it looks like the Rebers are not feeling safe having Josh on their property.
Josh Duggar’s guardians express safety concerns.
During Josh’s bail hearing, his parole officer, Diem Nguyen, reported that Maria was not totally comfortable with the arrangement. Nguyen said, “Her concern was she was a woman and Josh was a man and that she felt, she didn’t know how she felt about being alone with him for a long period of time.”
A new document obtained by Radar Online shows the concerns about releasing Josh on conditions. According to the document, Maria “showed some hesitancy in talking about initially whose idea and whose decision this was.”
A lawyer said, “the Court needs to take into consideration under the statute is the nature and the seriousness of the danger to any person or the community that would be posed by Mr. Duggar’s release.”
They continued, “We know he is capable of hands-on offenses because he has engaged in them in the past, and we know that the child pornography that Mr. Duggar was looking at involves the sexual abuse of toddlers and young children. He has a history, a history dating back 20 years, that shows his sexual attraction to children and the deviousness of his activity.”
The lawyer added, “We understand that they have loyalty to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and want to be a good friend and want to take Josh Duggar in and that they state that they are willing to change the way they they live their whole lives in order to do this.”
