Just hours after In Touch Weekly published a bombshell police report, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, that revealed Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar waited more than 16 months to report their son Josh, 27, for molesting several young girls — including his five-year-old sister — the couple sat down with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly about the incident.

Explaining his decision to not immediately report his child to authorities, the 49-year-old patriarch explained, “[As parents] you’re not mandatory reporters. The law allows for you to do what’s best for your child.”
Jim Bob also confirmed the victims included four of Josh’s sisters and a babysitter —alleging the young girls were unaware of what took place while they were sleeping.
