Anna Duggar’s children could have to undergo forensic examinations by CPS. This is due to the nature of Josh Duggar’s current child pornography case. Read on to get all of the details about the situation.
As you may know, Josh is in the midst of a child pornography trial. He was arrested in the spring for receiving and possessing child pornography. Some of the content allegedly even included the abuse of infants. On Wednesday, the prosecution and defense gave their closing arguments. Then, the jury began deliberating. However, they left and requested to come back on Thursday morning to continue.
As Duggar fans and critics wait for word on Josh’s verdict, they have plenty of questions about what could come next. Forensic examinations may be in store for Josh and Anna’s seven children, Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith, Mason, Maryella, and Madyson.
Anna Duggar previously refused forensic examinations of her children.
As Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball reported, the prosecutors told the judge that Josh and Anna won’t allow for the kids to be examined. She reported, “Prosecutors were so terrified for the safety of Josh Duggar’s children that they pleaded with the court to not allow him out on bond.”
Despite the nature of Josh’s alleged actions, he was still allowed to see his kids under the supervision of his wife. Anna reportedly brought the kids to visit him often while he stayed with a custodian. However, he couldn’t be around any other minors.
The court could order forensic and cognitive examinations for the kids.
In a new social media post, Katie goes on to explain what she learned during a discussion with attorney Rebecca Rouse.
“Let the jury take their time. Attorney Rebecca Rouse told us that If convicted, Josh could face other charges & his children will likely be ordered by the court to receive cognitive & forensic exams. Anna & Josh declined these exams. If convicted, the court can then order these exams. Due to Anna declining the exam, she will be denied access to the exams. She also could face charges if the exams reveal Josh harmed his children.”
