Duggar fans and critics alike have been keeping up with Josh’s case, and some wonder if his father, Jim Bob, is involved in any way. You may know that Josh was arrested a couple of months ago for downloading and possessing child sexual abuse material. Right now, he’s staying with a legal guardian and must stay away from minors. However, his wife, Anna Duggar, may visit him and bring the kids as long as she supervises them.
Over the past few days, more information about the case has surfaced. This gives fans and critics a closer look at what’s going on. For now, we don’t know what’s true and what’s not. But some details involving Jim Bob have surfaced.
Jim Bob Duggar pinned Josh’s alleged crimes on someone else.
In a new Instagram post, Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball shares some interesting information. She says she received these details about Josh’s case from a source. Her post reads:
“When Josh was arrested, Jim Bob Duggar allegedly told people that An ex-con Josh hired, downloaded the content onto Josh’s computer. The source claims that Jim Bob was confident that Josh was innocent & that the felon is to blame.”
In her post, she adds, “However, this story just fell apart because the Feds released the search warrant & it’s not looking good for Josh.”
Could this tell us who Randy is?
As we’ve reported, the search warrant states that another employee, Randy, was at the car lot where Josh worked when an undercover Homeland Security investigator came by. The undercover HSI stopped by to determine whether Josh was there and if his electronics could download the content he allegedly accessed. They were able to track Josh down with the help of his IP address and due to him not using a VPN to block his location.
The search warrant was released and included Randy’s name. So, Duggar followers have been trying to figure out who Randy is. At this point, we don’t have an answer. But Randy was working at the car lot, and Jim Bob reportedly blamed someone working for Josh for these alleged crimes. So, he could be the same person. But, of course, we don’t know anything for sure yet.
But Josh’s trial is right around the corner, so hopefully, we will get more answers soon.
So, are you surprised that Jim Bob Duggar originally tried to blame someone else instead of Josh? What do you think will happen next? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
