19 Kids & Counting and Counting On fans are worried about Anna and Josh Duggar’s kids’ future. On Wednesday, May 25, Josh received his sentence in his child pornography case. And now, fans are questioning what’s going to happen with the couple’s seven children. Keep reading for all of the details.
Josh Duggar is sentenced to 12.5 years behind bars.
Josh was arrested in the spring of 2021 for possessing and receiving child pornography. The eldest Duggar son was found guilty in December and was facing up to 20 years in prison. One of the charges was dropped because this content could not be possessed without receiving it as well.
Josh Duggar’s defense claimed that a five-year sentence was appropriate for the “wonderful husband and father.” However, the prosecution was pushing for a 20-year maximum sentence.
Fans show concern for the kids’ future.
On social media, in response to the news of his sentencing, fans are discussing what the kids’ future may hold. Many are curious about how old the kids will be when Josh is released from prison. They fear that he could harm his kids when he gets out.
One fan points out, “Ya know my first thought… when he gets out his youngest little girl will be 13. He won’t know her. She won’t be safe.”
Other Duggar fans agree, pointing out that the kids’ safety may be at risk when Josh is done serving his time.
Josh was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years behind bars. Right now, Mackynzie is 12, Michael is 10, Marcus is 8, Meredith is 6, Mason is 4, Maryella is 2, and Madyson is seven months. So, while some of his kids may move out of their home before he’s done his time, there’s still a good chance that several kids will still be home with him.
It’s unclear what the future holds for Anna and the kids. Fans are hopeful that she will leave Josh Duggar and protect her children. Several family members have urged her to do so. We’ll have to wait and see what happens over the next few years.
