Josh Duggar Trial Update: Which Family Members Are Present?

TLC (KW Josh Duggar trial update)

In a new Josh Duggar trial update, it was revealed that some members of his family are present. Josh’s child pornography trial began on Tuesday, November 30 with the jury selection.

During an evidentiary hearing, Jim Bob Duggar, Josh’s father, was asked to testify. He claimed he didn’t remember the details of Josh’s confession of molesting multiple young girls. However, family friend Bobye Holt testified, sharing many details that Josh had confessed to her years ago.

While Josh’s team tried to prohibit her testimony, the judge approved for it to be included in the trial. This means that Josh’s molestations may play a role in the ruling. This shows he had a motive and didn’t stumble upon the disturbing content by accident.

As the trial continues, several family members have shown up to watch the trial. After Jim Bob’s appearance at the evidentiary hearing, who all is at the trial as it continues on Wednesday?

Josh Duggar trial update: family members present at the courthouse.

The Sun has a reporter sharing live updates from the trial. The reporter revealed that Anna Duggar is currently at the trial alongside her husband. As we’ve mentioned, Anna reportedly believes that Josh is innocent. She has been at several other court appearances and proudly holds his hand.

According to The Sun, “Anna and Josh Duggar walked in together to court today, according to a reporter for the Sun present at the trial. They hugged and she sat in the first row and Anna was asked by a court clerk how she was. She shrugged and responded ‘good.'”

“Josh was polite and in high spirits and laughed and joked with the court clerk,” the reporter noted.

Surprisingly, Anna isn’t the only person who showed up at Josh’s trial. Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, was there as well. The source reveals he was, “sitting in the family section in the courtroom on Wednesday.” This comes just one day after learning that Jill may testify in Josh’s trial. It’s unclear why Derick is at the trial, but it could possibly have something to do with Jill’s opportunity to testify.

Austin Forsyth, Joy-Anna Duggar’s husband, was also present.

So, does it surprise you that Derick Dillard is at Josh Duggar’s trial? Do you think this is any indication of whether Jill Dillard will testify? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. For more Josh Duggar trial updates, come back to TV Shows Ace.

  1. Go Jill! Tell your story if you have to. They should force Anna to stay in the court room for all of this. If she really thinks he is innocent why run away?
