Six months after Josh Dugar was convicted of child pornography, his family has not come close to acknowledging the fact that he is a predatory monster who deserves to be held captive for a very, very long time.
If anything, it seems Josh’s loved ones are more convinced of his innocence than ever before.
We have new evidence of Dugar’s confusion this week, thanks to the family’s letter to the court before Josh’s sentencing, which is scheduled for May 25.
One of the most traumatic out-of-touch appeals comes to us from people other than Josh’s mother.
In a lengthy letter to the judge, Michelle Dugar wrote that she hoped “a fair and just sentence would be imposed.”
(We feel the same way, but our definition of “fair and equitable” is probably very different from Michelle’s.)
“Joshua has a tender heart and is sympathetic to others,” wrote Dugar Matripati.
“If someone is having a hard time, he is one of the first to encourage them or try to help them.
From there, Michelle completely misses the point, making no mention of Josh’s offense and instead boasts about how good he is with the money.
“Joshua has always been a positive and enthusiastic person,” he wrote.
“He is financially savvy – saving money for the future and not going into debt. He is a good provider for his family, works hard and thinks of creative ways to support and care for his wife and children. He is also generous. And others in need. Shares his wealth with. “
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either.
During all these lessons about credit scores, they probably should have paused here and there to remind their kids not to be sexually abusive!
Michelle went on to tell the judge that Josh was an “organized and hardworking man” who “set a good example for himself to apply himself to his work and to many other responsibilities as husband and father.”
He said Josh and his seven children had “built castles, learned how to work on bicycles and other vehicles, camped, hiked, fished and played countless games and sports – together!”
Yes, the Dugars still do not understand the severity of Josh’s crime.
Either that, or they still deny that he committed the crime, which he did 100 percent.
Michelle, of course, was not alone in her attempt to convince the judge that Josh was just a misunderstood man.
Anna Dugar also wrote a letter to the hunter and she is as confusing as her mother-in-law.
“Joshua sees the best in people and is willing to walk by their side to help make their dreams come true,” he wrote.
“I ask that you consider reuniting us as a family soon.”
So yes, if you are one of those people who hoped that there was some truth in the rumors that Anna was finally considering divorcing Josh, then we hate to disappoint you.
An insider tells In Touch that Anna is frustrated with Josh, but has every intention of being by his side.
“Anna has endured a lot with Josh, but she really believes in him, his faith and his salvation. He thought he would turn his life around, a core belief he shares with Dugar and his religion, “the source said.
“Ultimately, Josh has failed him. He has completely turned his life around and the lives of their children. But he is not ready to move.”
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Anna aint for me either.
“Surprisingly, he didn’t throw the towel, not yet anyway,” the source added.
“Anna is not going to give up. She never wanted to let go of Josh, but she has been tested to the limit.”
We can only hope that the news that Josh is still surrounded by innocent people will persuade the judge to give a longer sentence.
