Amy Duggar has stated some very pointed issues about her cousin, Josh Duggar, through the years.
At one level, for instance, she trashed the convicted kid intercourse perpetrator as a psychopath.
Now, alternatively, in a brand new interview with The Sun, Amy relays one thing pointed to Josh as soon as stated to her.
Something very pointed and VERY disgusting.
Speaking to the aforementioned e-newsletter on the subject of a yr after her relative’s conviction, Amy hearkened again to a dialog she had with Josh a very long time in the past.
Josh admitted a few years again to molesting a lot of younger women when he used to be a teen — together with two of his sisters.
According to Amy in this new sit-down, she in reality requested Josh why he by no means attempted to touch her in a beside-the-point means.
“He said, ‘Because I knew you would’ve kicked my ass,” Amy now alleges.
In that second, Amy says she replied to Josh: “Correct. I would’ve kicked your ass.”
We can’t say for positive whether or not this alternate ever, in reality, transpired.
But, if it did, Amy’s research of Josh’s troubling answer is spot-on.
“I was shocked first of all that he cussed,” she advised The Sun.
“[But] it displays he knew who to focus on, individuals who had been weaker and who had been going to be too scared to mention anything else.
“And it’s so tousled, so screwed up – however, he knew that. I might’ve kicked his ass and it doesn’t have been a hidden factor.
“But it’s so sad and messed up that [the incidents] did happen.”
In the spring of 2015, In Touch Weekly revealed a police file from 9 years previous that detailed how the native Arkansas government had investigated whether or not or now not Josh molested 5 underage women.
The abuse used to be imagined to have taken position within the Duggar circle of relatives’ houses between 2002 and 2003 when Josh used to be between the ages of 12 and 15.
The sufferers had been between the ages of five and 11 — and two had been later recognized as Jill and Jesse Duggar, who talked brazenly to Megyn Kelly about what had come about with their brother.
After this knowledge used to be launched, Josh — who by no means confronted any prison repercussions for his movements — issued an observation that learns as follows:
Twelve years in the past, as a tender teen, I acted inexcusably for which I’m extraordinarily sorry and deeply apologetic about I harm others, together with my circle of relatives and shut pals.
I confessed this to my folks who took several steps to assist me to cope with the location.
We spoke with the government the place I confessed my wrongdoing and my folks organized for me and the ones suffering from my movements to obtain counseling.
In reaction to this confession, TLC canceled the Duggar fact display 19 Kids and Counting.
It then aired a by-product titled Counting On… up till closing yr when Josh was given arrested for downloading graphic photographs of minors.
The community then after all minimizes all ties with the circle of relatives as a complete.
In May, in the meantime, Josh used to be sentenced to over 12 years in federal jail because of the aforementioned kid intercourse offense.
