Josh's Legal Dispute

This isn't the first time Josh Duggar deals with some legal issues. In the past, the Counting On star faced a molestation scandal, which involved his sisters, Jill and Jessa Duggar. They later stepped forward and broke their silence about the controversy.

A police report back in 2006 revealed that Josh was investigated as a teen for fondling five underage girls,  his two sisters included. In 2015, he admitted his "wrongdoing" and apologized for it. He was never charged.

In 2019, the car dealership where the Counting On star works was raided by Homeland Security in connection to an "ongoing federal investigation." Josh's current legal dispute prior to his latest arrest is a civil lawsuit filed against him for real estate fraud.
