Kaeleigh Holt dated Josh Dugar when the couple was 14 years old.
He was present at the Dugar family’s 2006 TLC special, 16 children and moving inside (Its forerunner 19 children and counting) And his name made social media rounds a few months ago as his mother, Bobby Holt, testified in December at the sexual assault trial of Josh Dugar.
Bobby Holt testified during the trial.
And the testimony he gave was of a disgusting nature to Josh, as Bobby recalled the time when Duger confessed to him that he had molested his sisters as a teenager.
That brought us back to last week, when Josh Dugar was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison for illegally downloading graphic photos of minors on his work computer.
In response to this result, Kylie Holt went on Instagram and shared some thoughts about what she thought was the “final piece of the puzzle”.
“My biggest concern goes to all the victims,” Holt wrote.
“While for us it may be a bit off for everyone outside, it’s going to be a long life for them, for Josh’s kids.”
Kailig says he realized that Josh and Anna Dugar’s daughter, McKinsey, was 12 years and seven months old, which is “exactly what.” [Josh’s] There was punishment. “
He described it as “strangely significant”.
“He’ll be gone for half of his life,” Kelig wrote, adding:
“These kids don’t deserve this kind of fatherhood and it’s going to be a lifelong therapy for them, and I hope they get it.”
According to Bobby Holt, his daughter is preparing to marry Josh one day – until the family finds out about Josh’s immorality scandal and pulls out of the deal.
That’s pretty bullet Kaeleigh Dodge, huh?
“I encourage you when you stop and think about this punishment today – or year after year – that you will think about children and victims and pray for them, because it will be long lasting for them,” he said last week. Done.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“It’s a very, very difficult day. [A] It’s a very, very hard day for them. “
Along with Holt, other members of Josh’s family spoke in terms of his punishment.
For example, Jill Dillard and her husband Derrick posted a response on their website:
The last few weeks and months have been emotionally difficult. Yesterday was another of those difficult days. We are not happy or disappointed by the sentence, but we are grateful that it is over.
The Bible clearly states that God accepts justice and retribution through the ruling authority.
Although some believe that Josh should have received a greater punishment and still fewer people believe that he should have received a lighter punishment, God has avenged him today for his unspeakable criminal activity.
This message ends:
To date, he has not yet been held accountable for much of his dangerous behavior.
It’s unfortunate, but it looks like he could spend more than a decade in federal prison, and for some more experiments, Josh has the potential to be rehabilitated so he can live safely in society again.
Hopefully, Josh can actually start treatment and start working towards a lifestyle where he is less likely to re-offend.
If nothing else, the notoriety of this case will hopefully contribute to the prevention of potential offenders and help protect children by reducing the demand for CSAM.
We continue to love Josh and his family and will be there for them as much as we can.
Elsewhere, Jason Dugar opens with a sentence:
In my opinion, Judge Timothy L. Brooks was justified in his ruling that Josh was given a sentence that would be considered moderate to low for the crime he committed.
My heart goes out to my brother for the choices he has made, his actions do not reflect that of a Christian believer and have undoubtedly insulted the name of my Lord and Savior!
Joshua’s poor decisions have profoundly affected the people around him, especially his wife, seven children, and our family as a whole.
Jason summed up his statement by saying that he could not give back to any relative completely:
By saying this, I will never stop loving my brother, no matter what he does, just as my Savior forgave me, so I forgave my brother for his wrongdoing!
My prayer is that God will use this situation to make him truly humble and make a real difference in his life!
