According to the latest in Josh Duggar news, he and his lawyers headed to court after four motions were filed in an attempt to get the case dismissed. The courts didn’t dismiss the case, though.

The latest Josh Duggar news brings Anna Duggar into the picture. Josh Duggar’s wife went to court with Josh for the four motions filed. And recent reports suggest Anna is still very much on Josh’s side despite the courts denying the defense’s motions.

“Anna is convinced Josh will be a free man soon and be able to raise their kids,” a source exclusively told The Sun. “She should be worried she’s going to be alone with seven children, but she isn’t. “She also doesn’t seem to care what anyone says, or if people think she’s crazy. Anna is standing by Josh.”

The source also noted that the longer the case continues, the more confident Anna feels about Josh’s innocence. “The family is so religious they are told it’s a sin to lie, so Anna believes everything Josh says,” the source added. “The longer it drags on, the more convinced she is this will all blow over.”
