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.

So, does it shock you that Josh Duggar’s parents are now affected by his crimes in this way? Sound off in the comments section below, and come back to TV Shows Ace for more news about the Duggar family.

  1. Good let them pay..If they had gotten him proper treatment when he was young this might not have happened.

  2. It’s true maybe if he had gotten the help that he needed maybe all of this wouldn’t be happening, it serves Jim Bob and Michelle to have to finally pay for it,I feel sorry for Anna having to raise his kids by herself knowing when he gets out he can’t be around his kids without supervision

  3. I agree Jim Bob and Michelle should of gotten Josh some help all those years ago instead of sweeping it under the rug…now not only Anna has to pay for his sins….but also his beautiful children…it could scar his kids if they don’t get any help in understanding why their Dad was in prison….and why he can’t be alone with them when he gets released…so sorry for Anna and her children.

  4. Parents of Dugger adult children did a disservice with their lack of parenting skills.
    Especially with Josh. They swept his all his horrendous things he did to his sisters under the rud instead of getting him some qualified professional help.

  5. I do not feel sorry for them they knew what he was doing and did nothing for their daughters that were molested by him only protected the pedophile. Their so called beliefs are so outrageous. SHAME on you..arquetta
