Are Josh Duggar’s parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, now left footing the bill for his crimes? The eldest Duggar child has to pay a $50,100 fine as part of the punishment for his crimes. And it looks like his parents may be affected by that. Keep reading to get all of the details.
In May, Josh was sentenced to 151 months (about 12-and-a-half years) behind bars. The former 19 Kids & Counting star was convicted on child pornography charges back in December. He’s now serving his time in the Federal Correctional Institute in Seagoville, Texas. Along with his 151-month sentence, the Duggar son must pay a lump sum.
Josh Duggar receives a $50,100 bill.
The Sun has confirmed that at the time of his sentencing in May, Josh was ordered to pay $50,100 “immediately.”
At the time of his sentencing, it was mentioned that “any unpaid financial penalty shall be paid by the defendant during his term of imprisonment at a rate of up to 50% of the defendant’s available funds, in accordance with the Inmate Financial Responsibility Program.”
However, it now looks like Josh Duggar’s parents may be responsible for this hefty bill.
How does this affect Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar?
According to Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball, a lien was placed on Jim Bob and Michelle’s property. In a new YouTube video, she explains that this was done because Josh Duggar was living in a warehouse with his wife, Anna, and their seven kids, on his parents’ property. Though he didn’t live in their home, it looks like their addresses may be the same.
Katie says, “The Federal Government placed a $50k lien on Jim Bob & Michelle’s home because that is Josh’s address.”
In a disclaimer, she also notes that she doesn’t know whether this was done intentionally. She writes, “I’m just posting what was placed. That’s it. If the Feds did this wrong, the Duggars will have to take care of it.”
Also in her video, Katie explains that the Duggar family is very adamant about not having any debt. So, she believes that Jim Bob will be pretty unhappy about the lien on his home. The Duggar family’s show highlighted many of their frugal habits.
