Josh Duggar's Trial: Duggar Siblings Make Their Feelings About Josh Clearly As More Family Statements Arrive
The Duggar family appears to be in a state of disarray.
After Josh Duggar's trial ended in a guilty verdict on December 9, public statements began to pour in, with Jill Dillard and Derick Dillard among the first to speak out.
Shortly after, the other Duggar siblings issued statements.
While each sibling had their own words to say, a number of them have made it clear that they are mostly negative about Josh Duggar.
Despite this, they appear to be rallying around Anna Duggar.
Derick and Jill Dillard have been some of the Duggar family's most vocal critics.
Derick was present throughout Josh Duggar's trial, and Jill also made an appearance near the end of the proceedings.
Josh and the Dillards don't appear to have a lot of love for each other.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar appear to be a source of contention for the famous couple.
Derick and Jill said in a statement that they were relieved that justice had been done and that they agreed with the jury's decision.
The couple also used the opportunity to criticize Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
They wrote that they had been duped for a long time and were grateful for the opportunity to hear the evidence for themselves.
Since 2017, Derick and Jill have had a tense relationship with Jim Bob and Michelle.
In their statement, Derick and Jill made it clear that they support Anna Duggar.
According to the US Sun's coverage of Josh Duggar's trial, Derick sat with Anna for the majority of the proceedings.
Joy-Anna Forsyth was a victim of Josh's abuse.
Her husband Austin Forsyth was present throughout the trial, even though she did not appear in court for the first few days of testimony.
Later, Joy-Anna joined him, and photos of the two entering and exiting the court show them looking emotional and exhausted.
The Forsyths released a statement shortly after Josh's guilty verdict was read.
The couple, who have two children together, said they agree with the decision and are glad they were able to hear the evidence firsthand.
They went on to express gratitude to law enforcement officers who work to protect children and prevent the spread of child sexual abuse materials.
According to Duggar family fans, Joy and Austin's closing statements were particularly interesting.
They concluded their statement by praying for "Anna and her children." Family members found the phrase "her children" to be particularly telling.
Josh appears to be completely erased from the couple's minds.
Anna Duggar recently gave birth to their seventh child with Josh Duggar, whom she married in 2008.
Madisyn Lily Duggar was born on October 23, a month before Josh's trial started.
Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo were not present when the verdict was read in Arkansas.
Former reality TV stars were watching events unfold from afar.
The couple issued a statement after the judge read the verdict.
They called Josh a "hypocrite" and offered support and prayers to Anna and her seven children in a lengthy statement.
With their two children, Jeremy and Jinger now live in Los Angeles.
They revamped their social media presence in the aftermath of Josh Duggar's arrest.
Most of their children's photos were quickly removed from their public feeds by the couple.
They didn't show up for the trial in Arkansas.
Another member of the Duggar family followed in their footsteps on social media.
Before Josh Duggar's trial, Josiah Duggar and his wife, Lauren Swanson, deleted the majority of their family photos from Instagram.
They've mostly disappeared and haven't spoken about Josh's arrest or conviction.
Josiah and Lauren, in fact, haven't been seen in a long time.
