Former 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar has been causing a lot of waves and making a lot of headlines ever since it became public knowledge that he had molested at least five young girls when he was a teenager, four of whom were his own younger sisters, while they were asleep.

After Duggar’s parents became aware of their son’s depraved actions, they first kept the information to themselves and punished him at home. Eventually, though, in the year 2003, they learned that their son had continued to abuse more victims and they told Joseph Hutchens, who at the time was an Arkansas State Trooper.

Despite the fact that Hutchens was under obligation by law to report the child abuse committed by Josh Duggar, he simply gave him a “stern talking to” and said there was nothing else to be done. Duggar’s actions were kept secret. Later, Hutchens was convicted on unrelated child pornography charges and is currently serving time in prison.

In May 2015, In Touch magazine published an article that accused Josh Duggar of sexually abusing minors. They also published a police report that detailed the abuse, and the scandal became public knowledge. Duggar made a public statement in which he confirmed the child abuse allegations and apologized, saying “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.”

In the months that have followed, it also became public knowledge that Josh Duggar was a member of the infamous Ashley Madison dating website that promotes infidelity and has had extramarital affairs.

Duggar has also confirmed the truth of this and said “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this has became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”

Due to the statute of limitations laws, Josh Duggar has not been prosecuted for his crimes against the young girls who were his victims. He has essentially gotten away with it scot-free, with nothing but a damaged reputation.

However, it seems as though Duggar’s immoral and criminal actions continue to be uncovered, as he is now being sued by a porn star for alleged sexual assault.

The porn star, 28-year-old Danica Dillon — also known as Ashley Stamm-Northup — has claimed that after paying her $600 for lap dances, Josh Duggar then accompanied her to the Double Tree Hotel where they had consensual sex.

Afterwards, however, Dillon says that she was assaulted by Duggar and that although she was paid $1500 for the sex, she was left with both physical and emotional injuries that were”not part of any agreement and clearly exceeded the scope of consent.”

In her complaint against Josh Duggar, Dillon goes on to say that the incident repeated itself a second time when Duggar came to her and tried to apologize. He then arranged another private meeting with Dillon where he again abused her with “identical tortious(SIC) conduct.

Dillon states in the lawsuit that she is currently receiving treatment for severe anxiety and has been unable to work as a result of Josh Duggar’s alleged abuse against her. She is seeking $500,000 in damages from him.
