Josh Duggar is in the midst of some legal trouble after he was found guilty of child pornography charges in December of 2021. His sentencing is on Wednesday, May 25. At that point, the Duggar son and everyone else will learn what his future holds. Ahead of his sentencing, the prosecution has stated that they don’t believe he would seek professional help for these issues.
Josh and his family allegedly believe he was framed. His wife, Anna Duggar, reportedly believes he’s not guilty and has no plans to leave him. However, he has already been found guilty by the jury and is preparing to spend up to 20 years behind bars.
As Josh Duggar’s sentencing approaches, court documents are coming out. The prosecution has filed a sentencing memo. And Josh’s defense has fired back, fighting against the maximum sentence mentioned. His defense believes that he’s a “wonderful father and husband.”
Therefore, they believe a five-year sentence is appropriate.
Now, the prosecution has stated they are doubtful that Josh would seek treatment for these behaviors.
Josh Duggar: Prosecution Doubts He Would Get Professional Help
In the sentencing memo, the prosecution on Josh Duggar’s case state that he is “an offender who has a history of s*xually abusing minors, who has not received any treatment or therapy for this conduct to speak of, who appears unlikely to ever seek out or meaningfully participate in treatment or therapy to address this conduct, and who continues to deny any responsibility for his past or present crimes.”
The memo also reads, “There is simply no indication that Duggar will ever take the steps necessary to change this pattern of behavior and address his predilection for minor females.”
“Given these circumstances, this Court should be particularly mindful in crafting its sentence of the likelihood that Duggar reoffends upon his release from incarceration and what his reoffending conduct will entail,” it continues.
Though Josh Duggar can no longer be punished for his prior molestations, they can be taken into consideration. This shows a pattern in his behavior. And as the prosecution mentions, he has not sought treatment for these actions.
