After attending Josh Duggar’s trial, Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth are now speaking out about his conviction last week. His trial began on November 30 and ended on December 9. During that time, several members of the family made appearances in court. However, we didn’t know whether they were there to gather information and try to understand the situation or to support him.
Now, it looks like Joy-Anna and Austin wanted to get the facts straight by attending the trial. There has been heavy speculation that this is the first time that the couple learned the truth about Josh molesting Joy-Anna when she was young. A family friend, who Josh previously confessed the molestations to, shared her testimony in court.
Though Josh couldn’t be charged for those actions, they were used in this trial to prove he would have had a motive to download child s*xual abuse images on his devices.
Since Josh was found guilty and booked into the county jail, members of the Duggar family have been speaking out. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Jill and Derick Dillard, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo, and Jessa and Ben Seewald have all made statements. Now, Joy-Anna and Austin want to share their thoughts.
Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth share their statement.
On Sunday, Joy-Anna and Austin broke their silence. They both posted the same statement to their Instagram stories, which can be watched for 24 hours and then disappear.
In their statement, the couple wrote, “Over the last year, as you can imagine, there have been a lot of unanswered questions in our minds regarding Josh. We were able to sit through the trial to hear the evidence for ourselves. We agree with the judicial system’s verdict and we are thankful for the men and women who work tirelessly to protect children and help prevent child s*xual abuse material. Out hearts break for all CSAM victims.”
Finally, Joy-Anna and Austin add, “We are praying for Anna and her children.
Other Duggar family statements have mentioned Anna and her kids. Josh’s wife is now raising seven kids on her own, and she previously depended on him, who she called a “diligent worker.” Now, it’s unclear what her future holds. Based on what her family has said, however, she seems to have their support and prayers during this uncertain time.
