Reality Star Jim Bob Duggar Turned Son Josh In To Police for ‘Inappropriate Touching’ of a Minor: Sources
Multiple sources told In Touch Weekly that ’19 Kids and Counting’ star Jim Bob Duggar turned his son in to the police for “inappropriate touching” of a minor when the younger Duggar was 17.
The magazine reports that sources who saw the police report back in 2005 say that Jim Bob called the Arkansas State Police Department after he found Josh leaving an unidentified young girl’s bedroom and learning that ‘something inappropriate happened.’
A source told the magazine that, “I saw and read the report and it clearly stated that Jim Bob brought his son Josh into the Arkansas State Police and spoke with a state trooper about Josh’s alleged inappropriate touching with a minor.”
Duggar was never prosecuted.
The magazine reached out to Sgt. Darrell Hignite who reportedly investigated the incident but he said, he “can’t comment or discuss [this case] because of the sensitive nature and because it involved a juvenile.”
Another source told the magazine that “a technicality prevented any further action. That’s been the biggest regret in all of this.”
Josh Duggar has not replied to the accusations.
