According to the American justice system, one is innocent until proven guilty. But that’s not how the court of public opinion – or social media – works. An outspoken family critic, Josh’s cousin Amy Duggar has come out and stated plainly what she think should happen now that both sides in his child pornography case have called their final witnesses.
Amy Duggar was happy to hear on December 9 that her cousin Josh Duggar was found guilty by a jury in his child pornography case. The 35-year-old said on Twitter that “justice has been served” immediately following Josh’s guilty verdict. The former reality star, 33, now faces up to 20 years in prison, as well as $250,000 in fines, with a sentencing date to come.
“May the daughters who were abused feel validated,” Amy said on Twitter. “You are truly beautiful and worthy of love. May there be intense counseling / healing. May there be wisdom for all those involved on how to move forward. Thank you Jesus. Justice has been served.”
This isn’t the first time Amy has cited the need for justice when it comes to her cousin, either. “Stop & PRAY today that there is justice for the CHILDREN,” wrote Josh’s outspoken relative on Instagram, when the trial kicked off on November 30. She also previously posted a cryptic message about cutting toxic family out of her life.
She said that she doesn’t regret sharing the message. “I 100% stand for that message,” she said. “I have created those boundaries in our life to protect Daxton [her two-year-old son] and to protect myself.”
