After a delay of more than a month, the long-awaited sentence will be announced next week Josh Duggar After pleading guilty to taking and possessing child pornography in December.
In front of the judge Timothy L. Brooks Decides about 19 children and counting The fate of alum, people on both sides get to have their say by letter. We have already seen what the mother of one of his victims said – as well as his wife Anna Duggar And mother Michelle Dugar.
These last letters are now the opportunity for the prosecution to respond. If you haven’t seen it, Anna writes about her husband:
“Joshua is a hired father who happily throws a football with his sons, sings a new song that our daughters have learned on the piano, helps answer homework questions, or shakes off a falling cracker. He is a kind, loving, helpful, and caring father and husband তার his primary focus in life. My child and I depend on Joshua for financial, emotional and physical support. ”
Michelle also praised her son as a family man, writing:
“Besides, Joshua and his family have built castles, learned how to operate bicycles and other vehicles, camped, hiked, fished and played countless games and sports – together!”
Lady, the problem is not how she treats her own children (hopefully!), How she looks at other people’s children which makes her a threat to society!

But don’t listen We Have to say. See the brutal response of the prosecution in the family letter! They blasted Josh’s legal arguments for flexibility, according to documents obtained by the judge. The sun:
“To support his argument, Dugar relies on the claims of his wife, his mother and others that he is ‘deeply devoted’ to his faith and family.”
Are they just quoting here? Or are they referring to that sarcastic finger-quote thing? Hmmm. They continue:
He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture[s]”And this will enable her to make the most of the rest of her life and work hard to ensure that her children’s lives are affected as little as possible by her trafficking to CSAM.”
Oh man, that last little addition reminds me of “her trafficking in CSAM” or “child sexual abuse material”. It’s a shadow but, we mean… just facts. They are talking about protecting their families His Children from any consequences of what he did Others Children of man.
Prosecutors have also blasted his argument that he is being treated more harshly because of his reality TV background. They write:
“These demands only underscore the appropriateness of the government’s sentencing recommendations. In fact, his supportive family and the public face and privileged lifestyle make his criminal behavior even more astonishing. “
Yes! Although he is famous – and what he does is not exactly under the radar – he still goes through what he did. Not just CSAM, cheating with his wife! Remember that? Prosecutors do. They wrote:
“Despite gaining some level of fame through reality television as an adult, he is currently best known for his behavior, including his sexual inconsistencies and criminal sexual behavior outside of his family programs.”
The government has blown up letters from Duggar women, citing:
“More importantly, none of these letters are significantly related to his crime or his sexual orientation towards ex-girlfriends.”
It is true that in highlighting his good qualities, his family members do not feel that they are planning to give him any advice or whatever he may need. And isn’t that a problem in the first place? Her parents found out about the child’s immorality when she was very young – and Jim Bob Duger Did you choose to sweep it under the rug instead of really doing anything about it? Prosecutors argued that in this restrained environment, it was “impossible” that Josh “would receive the necessary treatment and accountability to prevent him from re-offending if he maintained this posture.”

“In fact, because of the apparent success of his blaming strategy with some people he wants to surround himself with after his release from prison, it’s not just impossible – it’s unimaginable.”
It’s hard to argue with that, considering how many times Josh was saved from the rod, so to speak, and only did worse and worse things.
His legal team responded to the prosecution’s recommendation for harsher punishments, writing:
“The punishment the government is seeking is excessive, utterly unreasonable, and unprecedented for the alleged crime for which Duggar stands to be sentenced in this court.”
They made it clear:
“Clearly, no one denies the extent to which real children are victims of child pornography – but the government’s focus on sentencing memoranda is clearly intended to provoke an emotional response in the hope that this court will impose an unnecessarily harsh sentence.” In this case. “
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. It is almost as if they think that a high profile offender should receive a really severe punishment in the hope that it may prevent more people from engaging in unimaginable bad behavior!
What do you think will happen to Josh ??
