Earlier this month, we reported on a surprising development concerning convicted child sex predator Josh Duggar.
It seems that Josh has been thrown in solitary confinement after getting busted in a brazen violation of prison rules.
Duggar was caught with a cell phone that had apparently been snuck into prison on his behalf.
Needless to say, inmates aren’t supposed to be sending texts or downloading apps, and Josh’s breach of policy was met with swift retribution.
It now looks as though Josh will spend several months in solitary.
Not surprisingly, the situation has left many observers with a lot of questions.
And no one is demanding answers more loudly than Amy Duggar.
Amy is a cousin of Josh’s, but she has long been one of his most outspoken critics.
Earlier this week, Amy was joined by her mother, Deanna, for a video in which they attempted to get to the bottom of the latest Josh scandal.
“Hi, okay, so we just have a couple of questions to the jail that is holding Josh,” Amy said in the clip above.
“The prison,” her mother corrected.

“What was he looking at?” Deanna asked.
It’s unpleasant to contemplate, but it’s an important question.
After all, Josh is in prison for child pornography.
Josh’s arrest marked the beginning of the end of the Duggar’s media empire.
It is a troubling thought.

Many commenters on Amy’s post have jumped to the conclusion that she was subtly accusing Anna — and they’re probably correct.
“I watched Orange is the New Black. One commenter said that he knew what he did in order to obtain a cell phone …”.

“Pretty much anything illegal can be gotten in prison for the right amount of money on a commissary or something similar. It’s not that difficult,” another added.
Others were curious about the long-term consequences of Josh’s infraction.

It’s unlikely that the phone incident will lead to an longer sentence, but it could prevent Josh from meeting the “good behavior” requirements that would enable him to qualify for release in 2032.
Josh is currently appealing his sentence, and his attorneys were in court for a preliminary hearing next week.
So it’s possible that he’ll be a free man much earlier than expected — but thankfully, legal experts say the odds are not in Josh’s favor.
