Trouble is not over for the Duggars.

According to InTouch, if the non-family victim does file suit, the Duggars will likely “have to answer every question as they will not be able to invoke their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination because the criminal statute of limitations has expired.” This means Josh’s parents Jim Bob and Michelle could have to reveal what they knew about Josh’s behavior and when, and what—if any—safeguards they put in place to keep him from offending.

Per InTouch, legal experts believe the non-family victim “still has the right to sue under Arkansas Code Annotated Section 16-56-130, which allows for a civil action when a sexual abuse victim start to experience the effects of the abuse years later.”
