SOME SIBLINGS FOLLOW SUIT
While she was the only one to announce a social media break, it seems some of her other sisters have followed suit.
Jill, 30, has kept quiet on social media since early December, with her last post being a selfie and captioned: “So thankful for coffee from friends, walks in nature, food from family and friends and the many supportive messages and continued prayers.”
As for 29-year-old Jessa, her most recent post was on the final day of 2021, simply sharing a snap of her son Spurgeon holding a cookie.
However, some of the other Duggar sisters have been a bit more active, including Jinger, who has posted some photos of her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, as well as her various daily tasks.
HER BROTHER’S TRIAL
At the beginning of December, Joy-Anna’s brother Josh, 33, was found guilty of child pornography charges and taken into custody.
The son of father Jim Bob, 56, and mother Michelle, 55, had been arrested and charged back in April with receiving and possession of child pornography.
After the jury reached its verdict, the ex-TLC star could face up to about 20 years behind bars on each guilty count.
He is expected to be sentenced in about four months.
Josh’s lawyers have planned on appealing the case.
THEIR JOINT STATEMENT
After the guilty verdict, Joy-Anna and Austin shared a joint statement on social media.
The married couple wrote on their Instagram Stories: “Over this last year, as you can imagine, there have been a lot of unanswered questions in our minds regarding Josh.
“We were able to sit through the trial to hear the evidence for ourselves.”
They continued: “We agree with the judicial system’s verdict and we are thankful for the men and women who work tirelessly to protect children and help prevent child sexual abuse material.”
The duo – who previously attended the trial several times – concluded: “Our hearts break for all CSAM [child sexual abuse material] victims. We are praying for Anna and her children.”
Josh has seven children with his wife Anna, who supported him throughout the trial.
