Jill Dillard reacted in an official statement to the incarceration of her brother. In her statement, she spoke about how it was the first time that Josh had been held accountable.

However, he talked about the sentence being “below [the] median.”

Josh Duggar might go to Seagoville prison in Texas and the prison does have a rehab facility. Still, it’s not really a doddle in the park. There, inmates are expected to work. Additionally, communications are restricted and visitors are limited. Of course, he will, potentially not be held in the general population given the nature of his crimes. Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports suggest that his wife Anna still believes in his complete innocence. However, it will be many years before he gets to be a dad to their seven children again.
