I read it. I have no idea what "LEO" is. JOsh went to a facilty for treatment - I don't know what any "stern talking to" has to do with it. And where did you hear that Josh was convicted of anything?

Listen, I'm not sticking up for these people - I think they are a bit nuts frankly. But I know far too many families that have dealt with this crap themselves - it happens. Way way way more often than anyone knows. Would I go back to my molester uncle and have him arrested rather that have had it handled (very well in fact) by my family?

Absolutely not.

LEO is Law Enforcement Officer and it was HE who was convicted of child porn. Hence many raised eyebrows here.

LEO= Law Enforcement Officer, ie; cop.

It's a mess and you would need to dig back in this thread to read a bunch of links that point out what a mess it was.

I find it bizarre as well that the one person JB tells about the molestation is into child porn to such a degree he is sent to prison for some 50 years, and this person is considered a friend??? How is a man into child porn going to help a teen engaging in molestation?

He was not sent a facility for treatment. He was sent to do construction work for a friend of Jim Bob's.

LEO = law enforcement officer

Josh was not convicted, the LEO that Jim Bob consulted (who gave the stern talking to) is the one that was later convicted of child porn

I am sorry you were molested but I am glad you are at peace with how it was handled. However, I do think it's important to note that without taking any legal action against your uncle he is/was much more likely to molest again... He likely would learn to do it outside family boundaries. That's why I always encourage someone to report a sexual predator because when you don't you're simply enabling them to prey upon someone else at a later date

That's one of the really pathetic things about this the idea that sending someone to do construction work somehow addresses molestation issues.

This story continues to get more sick and twisted. A news report came out today about the girls saying their brother is a good kisser. The Duggar Girls Learned to Kiss From Jim-Bob and Josh Not sure how reliable this story is. Could it have been a kiss on the cheek? Just kinda weird.

I wanna know how much TLC knew about this whole Scandal. Shocking that even Oprah was made aware and cancelled the Duggars interview.

I find it extremely bizarre and much more than an odd coincidence. Especially since the police report mentioned Jim Bob was going to send Josh to a formal treatment center but a LEO friend mentioned that in those centers people often learn other ways to commit offenses, which is why they opted to go the church/hard labor route... And come to find out a child molester was the one giving the "stern talking to" oh the irony.


Truthfully I doubt they knew the LEO was a pedo. If they did then THAT is sickening and even worse.

OMG I just had a thought-- what if Jim Bob DID know the LEO was a pedo and had the LEO talk to Josh sort of as a way to say "listen to him or else you'll wind up like him" kind of like on that show Scared Straight where the inmates tell the troubled youth visiting the prison to not wind up down their awful path.... OMG... That would make sense f you think about it
