Jill said: “We’re very sad about the whole thing, it’s horrible. It’s all very sad.
Law student Derick added: “Obviously if there is anything there related to child pornography, we hope that justice is done.
“I don’t think anybody supports child pornography. We’re sad for Anna, put yourself in her situation and imagine how you would feel if that happened with your family member.
What did the judge say at Josh Duggar’s hearing?
Court testimony say that the girls in the photo and video material in Josh’s possession were between the ages of 5-10.
During Josh’s hearing on May 5, 2021, the judge overseeing Josh’s child porn charges said she was concerned for the children around him despite letting him go home on bail.
The judge said of her decision: “The court views these charges as very serious. It is a concern to have an agent testify that the file download found on a computer is some of the worst child abuse pornography in 1,000 cases, that concerns the court.

“The victims of your crime, if you committed it, concern the court. Children are involuntary victims of pornography. They’re subject to human trafficking. This weights against your release into the community.
She said the molestation scandal that was made public “concerns her,” because of the age of the victims and the children in the porn.
The judge added: “I am concerned images and ages are very close to the ages of your children and nephews and nieces and siblings children. I don’t know if you’re a danger.”
