'It Was an Innocent Mistake,' Jessa Duggar explained why Jana Duggar is facing legal action.

The Duggar family has been in the news recently for allegedly breaking the law.

Josh Duggar's trial started in late November 2021 and concluded in December 2021 with a guilty verdict.

Jana Duggar is now in the news after being charged with endangering a child.

So, what exactly is going on with Jana's child endangerment charge? Jessa Duggar shared more details on her Instagram Stories, claiming Jana made an "innocent mistake."

Jana Duggar is the oldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children.

She still lives with her parents at 31 years old (turning 32 in January 2022) and helps raise the young children who also live in the house.

She also enjoys gardening and assisting in the household.

Prior to Jana's child endangerment charge in 2021, fans of the Duggar family rarely heard of her harming or wrongdoing.

On September 9, 2021, Jana Duggar was charged with a misdemeanor for "endangering the welfare of a child," according to DailyMail.com.

Just one day after Josh Duggar's trial ended, the charges were made public.

Jana is said to have entered a plea deal after pleading not guilty to the charges.

She is expected to appear in court on January 10, 2022, and if convicted, she could face a sentence of 30 to 90 days in prison.

Jana Duggar is facing child endangerment charges, and Jessa Duggar took to Instagram Stories to explain what's going on.

"In the end, it was an unintentional error," Jessa wrote in her story.

"She was babysitting and one of the kids slipped out the door unnoticed, but everything turned out fine; it could've happened to anyone; the media is sensationalizing this because of our current family circumstances, and it irritates me tremendously."

Jana is "one of the most amazing women" Jessa knows, and she'd trust her to babysit her own children "any day of the week," she added.

"Perhaps Jana shouldn't have so many kids who aren't hers," one Reddit user suggested.

"She needs to go on a vacation and never return."

"I obviously don't know all the circumstances," another Reddit user wrote, "but I do know Jana is tasked with caring for too many kids without enough help รข from another adult."

Another commenter on Jessa's post said, "Welp. I'm honestly surprised that anyone addressed the situation."

Josh Duggar was found guilty of two counts of child sexual abuse material download and possession.

While Jessa Duggar has acknowledged Jana Duggar's charges, she has yet to make a public statement on Josh Duggar's trial and guilty verdict on her social media pages.

Despite this, her husband, Ben Seewald, spoke out.

On Twitter, he made a statement about the trial.

"We are heartbroken beyond words for the children who have been exploited and abused in child sexual abuse material, and we are grateful for our justice system's ability to punish such evils," Ben wrote.

"Our hearts break for Josh's family, and we beg you to keep them in your prayers as they go through unfathomable grief and pain."
