ARKANSAS – Josh Duggar, one of the stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, has allegedly admitted to molesting minor girls when he was underage, myfox8.com reports.
In an exclusive statement made to People, Duggar said:
“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
Myfox8.com reports Josh has since resigned from his position with the Family Research Council after these allegations became public, according to People.
