In an exclusive interview with US Sun, Mary Murphy, a close friend of the Duggar family, has revealed that Josh's wife Anna is being blamed for his sick crimes. Josh, 41 was arrested for his child ponography charges in April 2021, and was sentenced to 151 months in prison in May.

Mary is a second-generation survivor of the Duggar family's religious sect, IBLP, which she considers a cult. Mary, who hosts the podcast 'Out of the Shadows with Mary Murphy', told The US Sun, “One aspect of the cult culture centers on the responsibility of females to meet the husband’s every single sexual need to prevent him from having affairs, sexually abusing children and watching pornography."

“If the husband does any or all those things, they blame the wife in a large part. Like, ‘Oh, if you met his needs he wouldn’t have done this.’ They’re going to blame Anna. The pornography goes back to Anna. The wife is not fulfilling his needs so he turned to pornography, poor him. The wife needs to do what she’s supposed to do and meet his needs. It’s not logical,” she added.

She continued, “I’m not surprised Anna is supporting him because that’s what she is being told, it’s her responsibility. Growing up in this culture, she’s turning that responsibility inward on herself and blaming herself. I’m not surprised she hasn’t left. We were taught, pressured and brainwashed to believe that as women and wives, the number one purpose is to support her husband and make him successful with no exceptions. The husband is number one.”

Josh was sentenced to 12 years behind bars with no possibility of parole in May for receiving and possessing child pornography, according to RadarOnline.com. Upon his release, Josh will be on probation for an additional 20 years. After requesting several extensions, he filed an appeal in October.
