Jessa Duggar has come forward and confessed that she is one of the five young girls molested by her older brother, Josh Duggar.

While she maintained what her brother did as a teen is “very wrong,” Jessa defended the 27-year-old.
“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.”
