In new letters revealing Josh Duggar''s life behind bars, his relatives are demanding that he be sentenced to a lenient sentence.
Nicole Burruss, a neighbor, spoke up about her stay in the Washington County Jail since the 19 Kids and Counting alum was detained in December after a guilty conviction. Josh was eventually sentenced to up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines on each count.
Nicole said that Josh had called and shared that a man was verbally harassing and abusive to him every time he passed his cell in solitary confinement. Josh was disgruntled by his remarks, but the man approached him to apologize, according to a letter obtained by The Sun.
Anna defended her husband in her letter, describing him as considerate, patient, willing to forgive, patient, and compassionate. She was sentenced to a just sentence, stating that she recognizes the dangers of this situation.
At the approaching sentence hearing on May 25, Timothy Burruss, a neighbor, wrote to the judge, pleading for mercy. He was characterized as a loving father and family member. She urged him to leave his wife and relatives as soon as possible.
