Molestation Controversy of Josh

The 'ashes' they referred to are the 2015 revelation that Josh molested the young girls and has been unfaithful to his wife.

Jim Bob Duggar, the father of Josh, filed a case at the Arkansas State Police for molesting five underaged girls from 2002 to 2003, including his sister.

This has caused the cancellation of his TLC show and his resignation from the lobbying position on the conservative Family Research Council.

Josh reported after the allegation:

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends," Josh, 27, said in a statement posted Thursday on the family's Facebook page. "I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling."

To more results, The Oprah Winfrey Show cancels the Duggar family's appearance on her show after receiving a tip about Josh Duggar's molestation allegations.

Allegations of sexual assault, which is a lie

Pornographic actress Danica Dillon filed suit against Duggar in November 2015, claiming Duggar had "assaulted her to the point of causing her physical and emotional injuries."

According to Dillon, the incident occurred after she had provided $600 worth of lap dances to Duggar; she was seeking $500,000 in damages from Duggar.

In early 2016, after admitting that she lied about being with Duggar, Dillon was forced to dismiss the lawsuit and promised never to refile her suit again.
