The family and certain members of their religious community knew about the attacks that occurred from 2002-2003, but did not immediately alert authorities.
The report notes that rather than be tried by law enforcement, Jim Bob instead "met with the elders of [his] church and told them what was going on." Josh was reportedly sent to a "Christian Program" where he would supposedly undergo "hard physical work and counseling." However, as was also uncovered in the police reports, Michelle Duggar later admitted to police that he had merely been sent to stay with a family friend to help him with his construction business.
When, at the age of 45, the Michelle Duggar announced that the family would soon welcome baby number 20, the clan was all smiles. What stirred up controversy surrounding this sad event was the family's decision to name, photograph, and have a full funeral service for the would-be twentieth Duggar.
One of the photos, along with a letter to her lost child read by Michelle is available here.

In their press release statement the network stated they were "especially concerned for the victims in this situation, including the Duggar family." In light of criticism that the network continued to air new episodes of for over a year after the scandal was unearthed, and was seemingly using the molestation case as a ratings booster, TLC worked with "victims' rights and advocacy organizations" to produce a 60 minute documentary about victims of abuse.

Gothard himself has been accused of a slew of improper sexual advances on young girls, but that's not where the creepiness ends.Instead, as Michelle wrote in her blog, the inspiration came from the Bible. They named their first son Joshua (of biblical fame), and things took off from there. John was another biblical name, and wanting to name the girl twin Ana, after a family member, the parents decided to add a J in front (Jana) "for honor." They stuck with the custom into perpetuity, stating that they didn't want any future kids to be jealous that they weren't part of the J tradition.and the Duggars have seen their way clear to reestablishing their high ratings relationship without involving the admitted sexual predator, Joshua Duggar.The curriculum itself has an entire section on what to do when an older male child sexually abuses a younger child of the same family (! Another article reported on one such "lesson," which guides parents on what to do if they discover that "an older brother was guilty of sexually abusing younger ones in his family." When the older brother had "repented," he's asked a series of questions — including "What teaching could have been given to family appears to match up exactly with the controversial "Quiverfull" movement of Christianity, which has ties with the Duggars' ministry, the family has stated that they do not consider themselves as part of that group.The Quiverfull name comes from Psalm 127 which compares one's children to an archer's quiver full of arrows.
