Arkansas Judge Orders Josh Duggar’s Child Molestation Police Report Destroyed

According to the Associated Press, Arkansas police have destroyed the 2006 offense report for Josh Duggar, which detailed how the then-14-year-old had molested five girls, including his sisters, on the orders of Judge Stacy Zimmerman. “As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned, this report doesn’t exist,” Springdale’s police representative Scott Lewis told AP. Usually such records are kept indefinitely, but the Duggars are basically Arkansas royalty, and are involved with conservative state politics and have the support of former AK Governor Mike Huckabee. So into the incinerator their dirty little secret goes, I guess? (Thankfully, InTouch obtained a copy of the report before it was destroyed, which you can read here.)

In his Facebook post on Friday, Huckabee had the gall to write, “There was no consideration of the fact that the victims wanted this to be left in the past. Ultimately a judge had the information on file destroyed—not to protect Josh, but the innocent victims.” Give me a fucking break. As if anything has been done to protect the victims, who were molested by their brother and then told they had to forgive him and move on, because Jesus had. GTFO. [Gawker]
