Jana Duggar accused of endangering the well-being of a minor
ELM SPRINGS, Ark. (KNWA / KFTA) – Jana Duggar, 31, has been charged with third degree endangering the well-being of a minor, according to a court file in Elm Springs, Arkansas.
Duggar, the former reality TV star and younger sister of recently convicted Joshua Duggar, was cited for misdemeanor on September 9. She was released on $ 430 bail.
The court document did not contain further details of the investigation.
She has pleaded not guilty and her court date is January 10, 2022.
News of Jana Duggar’s indictment comes a day after her older brother was convicted of receiving child pornography and possession of child pornography.
Duggar, 33, faces up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $ 250,000 on each count.
Judge Timothy Brooks has announced sentencing in about four months. Duggar was taken into custody after the verdict was announced.
The two Duggar siblings starred in TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” which hasn’t aired since 2015.
TLC pulled the reality show in 2015 on charges that Duggar assaulted four of his sisters and a babysitter. In 2015, Duggar publicly apologized for his porn addiction and cheating on his wife, calling himself “the greatest hypocrite of all time.”
Duggar’s trial unfolded as his father, Jim Bob Duggar, ran in a special election for a vacant seat in the Northwestern Arkansas State Senate. Jim Bob Duggar has also featured prominently on the TLC show and previously served at Arkansas House.
Jim Bob Duggar is one of four Republicans seeking the party nomination. Early voting began on Tuesday, December 7, and the primary is set for December 14.
