Josh Duggar’s sister Jinger Vuolo says she’s ‘disturbed’ by his child porn charges


Josh Duggar‘s younger sister, Jinger Vuolo, has broken her silence over his child pornography charges.

The 33-year-old former TLC star was arrested and is now facing federal charges of receiving and possessing child porn. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Friday in Arkansas.

Jinger, 27, and her husband Jeremy Vuolo, 33, reacted swiftly to Duggar’s charges after they were made public Friday.

“We are disturbed to hear of the charges against Josh. While this case must go through the legal system, we want to make it clear that we absolutely condemn any form of child abuse and fully support the authorities and judicial process in their pursuit of justice,” the couple wrote in a statement shared to Instagram.

“We appreciate your continued prayers for our family at this time.

They added: “We love Josh and Anna and continue to pray for their family.”
