Amy Duggar Reacts to End of Cousin Josh's Trial: Justice Must Be Served!

by at .  Updated at .

According to the American justice system, one is innocent until proven guilty.

But that's not how the court of public opinion - or social media - works.

An outspoken family critic, Josh's cousin Amy Duggar has come out and stated plainly what she think should happen now that both sides in his child pornography case have called their final witnesses.

Without putting too fine a point on it, Amy is hoping for justice - and leaving no doubt about what she believes would constitute that.

She thinks Josh Duggar should go to prison.

For a very long time.

On Tuesday, Duggar's defense team rested its case, prompting closing arguments to take place the following morning.

The jury was locked in deliberations all day Wednesday, as family members and outsides alike pondered the same thing:

Would Josh Duggar be found guilty and face decades in jail for allegedly downloading sexually graphic material of minors?

Or would be found not guilty, despite how bad the case looks for him?

After all, if the jurors found an inkling of reasonable doubt over whether or not he was actually responsible for the downloading of said material, it would be their civic duty to cut him loose.

For her part, Amy has a strong opinion.

"Stop & PRAY today that there is justice for the CHILDREN," wrote Josh's outspoken relative on Instagram.

She repeated a similar sentiment on her Twitter page, as you can see for yourself abovev.

Amy has been estranged from her more famous loved ones for years.

She generally kept quiet and generally wished the other Duggars well any time the subject was broached, however.

But then Josh got arrested in April on two counts of child pornography possession following a 2019 raid on his workplace.

Since then, Amy has taken every opportuniity available to blast the alleged pedophile on social media in response.

Josh Duggar is the Worst

EarlierĀ this week, for example, Amy compared Josh to a rabid dog - strongly implying that he should be put down.

Harsh ... but if he is indeed guilty of what he's accused of?

One can understand her visceral reaction, at least.

This isn't the first time Amy has cited the need for justice when it comes to her cousin, either.

"Today is a heavy day," the niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wrote on her Instagram Story when the trial kicked off on November 30.

She added at the time:

"This whole week will be. Next week will be too," Duggar said.

It will be difficult to be at peace, she said, "until justice is served."

In another message last week, Amy went off as follows:

"Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord, I will repay thee."

She added: "Please pray for the victims and for the truth to be revealed."

"Pray that the judge will give the ultimate sentence."

Would the jury see eye to eye with Amy on this?

UPDATE: It looks like Amy's hopes have been granted, asĀ Josh Duggar was found guilty on both counts by a jury this morning.

He will be sentenced at a later date.
