Sisters Ginger, Jessa, Jana and Jennifer ventured publicly together for the first time since their disgraced older brother Josh Duggar sentenced to 12 years and seven months in federal prison for child pornography.

After Josh sentenced in May, Jill and Derrick, 33, spoke with a statement that read: ‘The Bible clearly states that God exerts justice and vengeance through the Governing Authorities. People believe that Josh should have got a bigger punishment and still less people believe that he should have got a lighter punishment, God has taken his vengeance for his unspeakable criminal activity today.

The couple claimed

As of now, [Josh] has yet to be held accountable to the extent necessary to bring about a change in his dangerous patterns of behavior, and appears to have spent more than a decade in federal prison, and is still on probation, Josh has any potential for rehabilitation to such an extent that he can safely live again in society.’

The statement continued: ‘Hopefully Josh can actually start treatment and start working towards a lifestyle where he is less likely to have a repeat offence. If nothing else, the notoriety of this case has contributed to the deterrence of potential offenders and will help protect children by reducing the demand for child pornography.

We continue to love him and we will be there for him in whatever way we can.’

The soon-to- mom also revealed that ‘issues’ with her family had sent her for counseling, and that she has had limited contact with Jim Bob over the years.

During an early psychological opinion by Robert Wynne he said

I saw a new side to my husband and I began to make decisions that were best for our family, but not in their best interest.’ Unfortunately, I realized that he had become quite controlling, fearful and reactionary . He used to abuse. Our relations are not good. It has become quite poisonous.
