Jessa Duggar has identified herself as one of the five victims molested by her brother Josh.
While the pregnant 22-year-old knows what her brother, 27, did was “very wrong,” she spoke out in his defense during an interview with The Kelly File’s Megyn Kelly for Fox News.

“I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying,” the 19 Kids and Counting star explained.
“I’m like, ‘That is so overboard and a lie really.’ I mean people get mad at me for saying that but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”
Her 24-year-old sister Jill has also self-identified herself as a victim.
During the interview, the 49-year-old Duggar patriarch confirmed it was four of his sisters and a babysitter that the father-of-three inappropriately touched as a teen.
