Jailed Josh Duggar & wife Anna have made over 100 calls to each other while his sisters SNUB him after guilty verdict

January 11, 2022

JOSH Duggar and his wife, Anna, have made over 100 calls to each other while his sisters have snubbed him, as he remains in jail following his guilty verdict for child pornography.

Josh, 33, was found guilty of possessing and receiving child pornography on December 9 after a nearly two-week trial.


He was immediately handcuffed and taken into custody at Washington County Jail where he awaits his sentencing, as he faces up to 20 years in prison for each count. 

The Sun has been provided Josh’s video and call logs exclusively by The SoJo Files podcast. 

In the video log, Anna, 33, made 39 calls to her husband from December 12, 2021 to January 2, 2022. 

She reached him on Christmas Eve five times in calls lasting around 47 minutes total.

Anna, who shares seven children with Josh, made two calls on Christmas Day totaling around 27 minutes. 

She called him three times on New Year’s Eve for about 20 minutes and three times on New Year’s Day for over 40 minutes. 

Mom Michelle video chatted with him on January 2, 2022 for nearly six minutes.

As for phone calls, inmates can only make outgoing collect calls and cannot receive incoming ones, according to Washington County Jail. 

The Sun confirmed the phone numbers listed through public records. They were also confirmed by The SoJo Files.

Josh made 64 calls to Anna from December 10, 2021 to December 30, 2021, as some of the calls failed. 

He successfully called dad Jim Bob twice on December 26 and once on December 29. 

He spoke to his mom Michelle on December 14 for almost four minutes. 

Josh also had three successful calls with Michelle on December 21, one on December 22 and another on December 25. 

Josh called brother Jed twice before he picked up on the third try. 

They talked for over 16 minutes on December 21.

Other calls include to his younger brother Justin’s in-laws Robert and Hilary Spivey, family member David Waller and his lawyer Travis Story. 

SISTER DRAMA

Josh received no video calls and made no attempts to reach out to adult sisters Jana, Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy-Anna.

He currently appears on the outs from some of his sisters. 

In 2015, a 33-page Arkansas police report was released to the public, claiming dad Jim Bob confessed to local authorities that his eldest son Josh fondled the breasts and genitals of young girls while they were asleep in the Duggar family home years prior.

Josh’s younger sisters Jill, 30, and Jessa, 29, came forward as two of the alleged victims in an interview with Megyn Kelly, where they insisted they had forgiven Josh, who was never charged, for his sins.

In May 2017, Jill and Jessa sued the City of Springdale, police department employees and other Defendants for invasion of privacy and more, claiming releasing the records caused "extreme mental anguish and emotional distress.” 

Sisters Jinger, 27, and Joy-Anna, 24, are also suing, though they have not publicly come forward as victims of the alleged molestation. 

The Sun reported the sisters are considering a settlement before the trial set for later this year. 

ANNA'S PAIN

As The Sun also reported, Anna, is unable to see him in person until the sentencing in court, which has yet to be scheduled and is expected to take place four months from the verdict.

The only way for visits to take place currently is through video call or email, the Washington County Detention Center in Arkansas confirmed. 

Anna isn’t even allowed to be in the same building as Josh, as all visits through the jail lobby kiosk have been suspended because of Covid. 

Anna must communicate with Josh through website Jail ATM, which provides access via email and video call. 

Video calls are $0.25 per minute and emails are $5 per message. 

The website also allows loved ones to send money and gift packages, which include food products and beverage packets. 

The Sun previously reported Josh is not allowed conjugal visits with his wife. 

According to the Bureau of Federal Prisons website, conjugal visitation is "not permitted within any BOP facility.”

Arkansas is also not one of the states that allow conjugal visitation in non-federal prisons.

After Josh's sentencing, he will be transferred to federal prison for the crime.

FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM

Josh’s legal team filed an “unopposed motion for additional time to file post-trial motions” on January 5. 

The filing requested the court grant him an additional 10 days to file the post-trial motions, as the deadline is 30 days after the verdict. 

Common post-trial motions include a motion for a new trial and a motion for judgement acquittal. 

Josh's attorney vowed to appeal the sentencing after the verdict in a press conference. 

Josh was arrested and charged with possessing and receiving child pornography in April 2021. 

TRIAL

Many members of the Duggar family sat in on the trial, offering support to their fallen relative.

Siblings Jana, Jason, Joy-Anna, her husband Austin Forsyth, Justin, his wife Claire, Jessa, Jill, and her husband Derick Dillard, along with father Jim Bob, were all present at some point.

Though Josh didn’t cry after hearing the guilty verdict, Josh was “teary-eyed” and “solemn" when handcuffed, according to The Sun's reporter at the scene.

The ex-reality star was cuffed immediately and taken away.

He stopped to tell his wife Anna that he “loved” her on his way out.
