Josh Duggar’s pre-trial for his child pornography case was on Thursday, November 18. As we reported, his wife Anna walked into the courthouse in Fayetteville, Arkansas with him. She gave birth to their seventh child less than a month ago and announced the baby’s birth just days before appearing at the courthouse.
Now, the preliminary hearing is over, and some interesting information has been released from the courtroom. For those who don’t know, Josh was arrested this spring for the possession of child pornography. His trial is set for November 30 and he’s facing decades behind bars. So far, sources have said that his family believes he’s innocent. After the hearing, it was revealed that one of his relatives will be a prosecution witness during the trial.
Josh Duggar’s pre-trial reveals a family member as a prosecution witness.
Fox News affiliate, KNWA, reported the highlights from Josh’s preliminary hearing on Thursday. A shocking revelation was made, showing that one of Josh’s relatives is a prosecution witness in the case. This family member may testify during Josh’s November 30 trial. So, who is it?
KNWA notes that “one or two witnesses will testify to ‘multiple instances’ of child molestation.” Longtime Duggar fans will recall the reports of Josh molesting several of his sisters, as well as one other young girl when he was 14 years old. Since his arrest for child pornography, fans and critics have wondered if his past will affect the outcome of the trial.
So, it looks like one or two of Josh’s sisters, or his other victim, could testify to the molestation scandal. As we’ve reported, this could prove that Josh’s alleged charges were not by accident. They could show that he had intent in allegedly downloading the explicit content.
The Fox affiliate also added:
“Justin Gelfand spoke for the defense and took issue with the notice requirements for calling these witnesses, stating that he ‘disagrees adamantly’ that the prosecution did so. He said that the defense received ‘a single email’ from the prosecution discussing what a pair of witnesses, including Duggar’s father, Jim Bob, ‘may testify to.'”
So, Josh’s father Jim Bob may make an appearance during the trial. We will have to wait and see what happens to know whether Josh’s sisters appear as well.
