We’re just a week away from the long-awaited Josh Dugar sentencing hearing, and some members of Josh’s inner circle are trying their best to ensure his lightest possible punishment.
Josh’s wife, Anna Dugar, wrote a letter to the judge requesting that her husband be “reunited” with his family as soon as possible.
Josh’s mother, Michelle Dugar, insisted that her son was a good man who had just made a mistake.
Several Dugar friends and neighbors also wrote appeals, urging the judge to go against the convicted sex offender.
Needless to say, it’s amazing that Josh Hick has so many supporters around the corner, especially since some of them truly believe he’s innocent.
Letters written on his behalf tell us a lot about Josh’s relationship with his loved ones.
But there is a long list of people who have chosen not to write to the judge.
According to the UK tabloid The Sun, Michelle and Anai are the only close family members of Josh who wrote the letter on her behalf.
This means, of course, that Josh’s father, Jim Bob, did not help in the effort to secure a light sentence for his son.
And that means none of Josh’s 18 siblings can be bothered to write to the judge.
In a way, it’s not terribly surprising.
After all, when Josh molested five girls, four of them were his sisters.
This means that his early victim (which we know) will not want him back on the road.
But several of Josh’s brothers and sisters appeared in court to support him during the trial, and it was widely believed that they would remain loyal to his cause at the sentencing stage.
It is enough to make one think that they only showed up to maintain appearance and that they are actually aware of the truth about their parents’ older child.
The letters that were written were as confusing and out of touch as one might expect.
“Joshua has worked hard for me and our (now) seven children. But the happiest time of the day so far has been when Dad comes home from work, and his cheerful voice fills the house, “Anna wrote.
“Hey friends! How’s it going? What did you learn at school today?” Usually the conversation starts with greeting each of our children.
“Joshua is a hired father who happily throws a football with his sons, listens to a new song our girls have learned on the piano, helps answer homework questions, or shakes hands with cracked crackers,” Anna continued.
“She is a kind, loving, helpful, and caring parent and husband তার her primary focus in life. My kids and I rely on Joshua for financial, emotional and physical support. Many more rely on Joshua. “
“I urge you to consider reuniting us as a family soon. I understand the importance of this, however, I respectfully say that you will consider this letter when determining a fair punishment, “he concluded, without mentioning Josh’s guilt.
“Joshua is a loving and patient man, trying to be a blessing and provide for his family! He and his wife and children spend quality time together learning life skills and going on family trips, “wrote Michelle Dugar.
“Besides, Joshua and his family have built castles, learned how to operate bicycles and other vehicles, camped, hiked, fished and played countless games and sports – together!”
Michelle adds that Josh has “friends and family who love and support him to the best of his ability to succeed as a husband, father and business owner and both now and in the future!”
“As I look forward to his return, I am ready to extend my continued love and encouragement to Joshua and his family and their future success – together!” He said in conclusion.
“We request that he be reunited with his wife and family in a timely manner.”
Josh is scheduled to be sentenced on May 25.
