Former ’19 Kids and Counting’ Star Josh Duggar Has Been Arrested in Arkansas
You probably know Josh Duggar from the TLC show “19 Kids and Counting,” the show about the family with 19 kids. Duggar, the oldest child in the family, was a part of the show from 2008 until 2015. The show has since been canceled, and Duggar has gotten attention for several scandles.
First, Duggar admitted to being guilty of molesting young girls, including his sisters Jill and Jessa, when he was a teenager. The reality TV star also admitted that he was addicted to porn and had cheated on his wife. He has since received counseling and apologized. He released a statement saying, “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.”
Years later, Duggar is still married and has a total of six children with another one on the way. This past Saturday, his wife, Anna Duggar, announced that she is pregnant with a baby girl.

Just days after the joyful video was posted on Instagram, Duggar has been arrested by Homeland Security. He was booked in a Washington County, Arkansas, jail on Thursday afternoon. The official records lists charges against him as “hold for other dept.” and there is nothing mentioned about bail.
Why do you think Duggar was arrested? How would you react if your husband were arrested while you were pregnant with your seventh child?
