Amy Duggar prays for the 'ultimate sentence' for Josh Duggar as disgraced star's child pornography trial begins

AMY Duggar spoke out about her hopes for the 'heavy day' as her cousin Josh Duggar's child pornography trial begins.

The Counting On alum has been vocal about her feelings towards the allegations against her cousin as she's separated herself from her famous family.

On Tuesday morning ahead of Josh's trial, Amy shared a few messages on her Instagram Stories reflecting on her desired outcome.

She wrote: "Today is a heavy day. This whole week will be. Next week will be too. Until justice is served."

She continued with a powerful prayer for the victims involved writing: "Vengeance is mine sayeth the lord, I will repay thee.

"Please pray for the victims, and for the truth to be revealed.

"Pray that the judge will give the ultimate sentence."

Back in April, Josh pleaded not guilty to two child pornography counts.

The 33-year-old was accused of possessing sick images of child pornography that were "the worst of the worst" that authorities had ever seen.

Homeland Security special agent Gerald Faulkner said in May that downloads made from a specific file were "in the top five of the worst of the worst that I've ever had to examine".

Josh's trial kicks off on November 30 and could last until December 3. If found guilty, he faces up to 20 years in prison.

As news of her cousin's actions came to light, Amy made it clear that she did not want anything to do with her conservative Christian family.


Amy recently admitted she sought out "calm" ever since news of Josh being brought up on charges of “knowingly possessing material that contained images of child pornography,” including “of minors under the age of 12.”

The separation has been important for Amy’s mental health as she continues working to “let the toxic go” in her life.

Back in September the TLC star talked about needing a break amid the scandal while taking a relaxing trip to the lake with her husband Dillon King and their son Daxton.

She snapped a photo of her view at dusk captioning the post: "I just needed some calm…"

Just weeks before she re-shared an image of balloons on a brick background that read: "It's okay to cut off toxic family for your own wellbeing."

Showing her clear agreement, the 34-year-old added the caption: "Amen & Amen."

Others were quick to agree, as one wrote: "'Family over everything' doesn't apply to every family. Some of us are here to break generational curses, set boundaries, and stand up and do what's right for our own sanity, our children, and future generation."

Another agreed: "Deffffffs some of your fam. I know that’s right girl!!!"

One then added: "It's not only okay, it's NECESSARY for your physical and emotional well being."


The former reality star has been open about her non-disclosure agreement refraining her from talking much about her famous family. 

She previously told The Sun she was “devastated” by Josh's arrest. 

She said: “At the moment I have no comment to make. I’m kind of speechless, we just hope it’s not true. 

“I spoke with several of my cousins after we heard about the arrest. We’re in shock, but we don’t want to think the worst of someone, you want to think the best.

“If it is true it would absolutely devastate a lot of people.”
