JOSH Duggar’s wife, Anna, is being forced to testify in his legal war after he was accused of purchasing land illegally, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
Josh, 32, was sued in April 2019 by a man named Carl Echols who claimed his cousin sold him a five-acre property in 2006 for $17,500.
Carl claimed Josh purchased the land 10 years later for $1,000, even though he had been paying property taxes and even lived on the land.
Now, Arkansas court papers reveal Josh’s wife, Anna, 31, has been deposed, meaning she will testify in the case on Wednesday, March 25.
Josh has also been called to testify on Wednesday.
Josh has been dropped as a Defendant from the case, though his company, ALB Investments, is still being sued.
A trial in the case has been set for April 2020.
Blog Life is Not All Pickles and Hairspray was the first to report on the deposition.
This is the latest hardship for Josh’s long-suffering wife.
A police report published in 2015 revealed he was accused of molesting five minor females in the family home as a teen between 2002 and 2003.
Josh’s younger siblings Jill, 28, and Jessa, 27, came forward as victims.
The scandal led to the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting.
Only months later, Josh was busted on the adultery website Ashley Madison.
He admitted to cheating on his wife and to being addicted to porn.
Josh checked into a Christian rehab center and the two went to marriage counseling.
Anna said on an episode of Counting On in 2015: “It was definitely a hard thing and it is such a betrayal for a spouse to go through what we’re rocking through. It was hard to realize it was such a public thing.
“That loyalty was broken. How could this happen in our marriage? Josh was my first love. He’s my one and only. My only hope was to cling to my faith.”
But they have worked past the betrayal, as they welcomed their sixth child, Maryella Hope, in November 2019.
