Story of the crime
In March 2002, Josh Duggar had confessed to his parents that he had, on multiple occasions, touched breasts and genital region of his sisters while they were sleeping. However, the girls were not known to the abuse that had happened to them. During that time Duggar was disciplined at home.
But in March 2003, Jim Bob became aware of additional incidents which included touching a babysitter; cornering one of the sisters in the laundry room - Jim realized that he had to involve the elders of the Church, now. Duggar was sent for counseling and physical labor under the church's leadership.
It was not until 2006 that Jim Bob reported this incident to the Arkansas State Police. No official action was taken against Josh then but he was given a stern talk.
He had only canceled the subscription in May 2015 after the molestation allegations were made public.
