Fans who watched the trial play out know that the presence of another person seemed to be at the bottom of the defense team’s arguments for Josh to go free. They seemed to take the line that certain aspects of the trial were not actually clarified. In other words, while a lot of evidence was presented, they found an avenue to pursue. That involves the fact that they believe the prosecution couldn’t prove someone else did not do the crime. Beyond all reasonable doubt, as far as they are concerned, was never proven.

Counting On alum Anna Duggar also strongly believes that her husband is innocent. However, the prosecution reacted with a damning statement to the appeal. While Josh’s team tried to blame Caleb Williams, the state claimed that he wasn’t even in the area when the crimes happened. Well, he seemed like the ideal person to blame as he previously racked up some charges for intimacy with an under-aged girl. Now, the defense team requested more time to look into their case. The latest appeal was filed completely unopposed.
