Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth say they agree with Josh Duggar being convicted on child pornography charges last week.
“Over this last year, as you can imagine, there have been a lot of unanswered questions in our minds regarding Josh,” a joint statement reads. “We were able to sit through the trial to hear the evidence for ourselves.”
“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,” they continued. “Our hearts break for all CSAM victims.”
Duggar was guilty of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.
Duggar was arrested and charged in April on federal charges of receipt and possession of child pornography. Prosecutors alleged that he downloaded material that depicted the sexual abuse of children under the age of 12. He faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000 for each count when he's sentenced.
