Back in 2015, the world learned about it Josh Dagar harassed five young girlsfour of whom were his sisters.
Unfortunately, at the time, it seemed the girls ’parents were more concerned with taking revenge on the people who gave the information than protecting their daughters.
Probably at the will of the father, Jill, Jess, Ginger and Joy-Anna Dagar have sued against the Springdale, Arkansas Police Department, alleging that police officers violated their right to privacy by publishing a report of Josh’s arrest.
In February, after years of litigation, a judge ruled in favor of police, and the Daggar sisters’ lawsuit was dismissed.
Now, in a rather ironic twist, transcripts of the trial have been revealed, shedding light on the abuses that took place in the Dagarov home when the girls were growing up.
The most scandalous revelation comes to us thanks to Jill Daggar, who revealed that Jim Bob often swore at her.
“Unfortunately, I realized that he became quite controlling, scary and reactionary. He was kind of insulting,” Jill testified once.
“Our relationship is bad.”
She added that the situation had not improved, as being in Jim Bob’s presence these days was “not good for my mental health”, although she noted that she still hoped that the relationship could ever be “restored”.
“There are too many triggers and everything else that I had to process after being next to it,” Jill continued.
“It’s emotionally difficult and I don’t have the energy right now.”
She added that both of her parents “did not give her enough time and attention” to their children, which we believe is a natural consequence of the birth of 19 children.
Asked about Dress code Duggar and other draconian rules, Jill confirmed that both of her parents were “strict enough”.
It seems to us that they were unquite strictly, but we can understand why Jill may not have wanted to fry her parents too much.
The TLC show that made Duggars famous often highlighted how strict Jim Bob was with his daughters (his son, of course, found it much easier).
Jill did not offer specifics regarding Jim Bob’s verbal insults, but she was incredibly brave to make it public.
Jill severed ties with her parents back in 2019, and it seems she has had only limited contact with them over the years.
Around the same time, Jill’s husband, Derrick Dillard, accused Jim Bob of stealing millions from his children putting in your pocket your TLC earnings.
Needless to say, the last three years have not been very good for Jim Bob’s public image.
In addition to the allegations from Jill, Jim Bob’s eldest son, Josh Daggar was convicted of receiving and possessing child pornography.
He is currently locked up in an Arkansas jail awaiting sentencing.
Josh could receive up to 20 years in prison at a federal penitentiary.
Looking back, it’s hard to believe that the Daggars were once considered the healthiest family on television.
We are confident that future interviews and memoirs will bring even more revelations about the horrors experienced by Jim Bob’s daughters.
And Jill deserves respect for drawing attention to a situation that could have saved her younger sisters from such abuse.
