This week, the news broke that Jana Duggar is facing a child endangerment charge. Until now, she and her family haven’t commented on the situation. But now, some of them have begun to speak out. What’s the situation, and what has her family said?
In case you missed the previous updates, Without a Crystal Ball revealed that Jana was cited for endangerment of a minor back in September. It went public just one day after Josh Duggar was found guilty in his own legal battle.
More details have slowly become available, though very little information is confirmed. Jana has pleaded not guilty and will go to court in January. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s oldest daughter could serve one to three months in jail, pay a fine, or both.
Though it hasn’t been confirmed, a source revealed to Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball that the child involved in the situation was Maryella Duggar, one of Josh and Anna’s children. Jana allegedly fell asleep while babysitting and the 22-month-old was found in the street near the Duggar family’s home. But we don’t know the full story quite yet.
Jana Duggar’s brothers show their support.
In a new Instagram story on Saturday evening, James Duggar shared a photo of his sister, Jana. In the original photo, which is posted on her Instagram page, the oldest Duggar daughter is holding a sign that reads “Please form single line.” In his story, James blurred the sign and replaced it with text that reads, “I support Jana Duggar.”
On his own Instagram stories, Jason reposted the photo and wrote, “Bro, same!”
Duggar cousin Amy King also posted a couple of Instagram stories in connection to the charges. In her first story, she was rather snarky. She shared a photo of her son, Daxton, and wrote that she won’t be falling asleep while spending time with him. Shortly after posting it, she took it down and backtracked by issuing a statement. She showed some empathy for Jana and said she loves her.
We’ll have to wait and see what else the Duggar family says about the situation. For now, many of them appear to be keeping quiet.
So, what do you think of Jason’s and James’ Instagram posts? Do you think it’s nice that they are supporting their sister? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. Be sure to come back to TV Shows Ace for more news about Jana Duggar.
