AceShowbiz - Amy Duggar has shown her support to Jana Duggar after she was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor. Taking to her social media platform, the former "Counting On" star insisted that she will "call out what is right."
On Saturday, December 11, the 35-year-old made use of her Instagram Story to defend Jana. Along with a trio of pink heart GIF stickers, she wrote, "I will call out what is right and I will call out what is wrong."
"This couldn't have been intentional. Thank God the child was OK and found!" Amy continued. She went on to add a supportive message to her cousin that read, "I bet you were exhausted, stressed and just emotionally worn out. Watching multiple kids is hard!"
Amy added, "Bc there's so many of them and you only have two eyes!!" She then concluded her post as saying, "It's a very sad situation going on and my heart goes out to @janamduggar love you."
Jana, the oldest daughter of TLC's defunct reality television show "19 Kids and Counting", was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor in Arkansas on September 9, according to the Elm Springs District County Clerk. Circumstances surrounding the charges are still unclear, but she has entered a not-guilty plea and is due to return to court on January 10, 2022.
Jana's legal troubles came to light just one day after an Arkansas jury found her older brother, Josh Duggar, guilty of one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Josh faces up to 20 years of imprisonment and up to $250,000 in fines. He is scheduled to be sentenced at a later date.
Following the guilty verdict, Josh's attorneys said in a statement, "We appreciate the jury's lengthy deliberations." The 33-year-old reality star's legal team added, "We respect the jury's verdict, and we intend to appeal."
In the meantime, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar issued a statement on their family's website that read, "This entire ordeal has been very grievous. Today, God's grace, through the love and prayers of so many, has sustained us." They went on saying, "Our hearts and prayers are with anyone who has ever been harmed through CSAM [Child Sexual Abuse Material]."
"As parents, we will never stop praying for Joshua, and loving him, as we do all of our children," the couple added. "In each of life's circumstances, we place our trust in God. He is our source of strength and refuge. Thank you for your prayers."
Amy also spoke out about Josh's guilty verdict, writing via Twitter, "May the juror's and Judge Brooks seek healing / counseling from all that was exposed to them. May the children grow up with real Godly men as father figures who will guide and protect them." She continued, "May the people who were once in disbelief have their eyes opened for the first time."
"May the daughters who were abused feel validated. You are truly beautiful and worthy of love. May there be intense counseling / healing. May there be wisdom for all those involved on how to move forward," Amy shared in a separate post. "Justice has been served."
