More family members are speaking out about the arrest of reality TV star Josh Duggar, who is out on bond awaiting trial on child porn charges. 

Duggar left jail on Thursday wearing an ankle monitor, which will be his new normal until his trial in July.

On Saturday night, Josh’s sister, Joy-Anna and her husband, Austin Forsyth, spoke out for the first time about Josh’s arrest.

‘The recent accusation brought against Josh sadden us to our core,’ they each wrote on their respective Instagram Stories.

‘We have not wanted to be hasty in making any statements while still trying to process the news ourselves.

We are especially heartbroken by the reality that there are children in the world being harmed and exploited.’

‘We ask for prayer for all those involved, and it is our continued prayer that the truth comes to light.’

The 33-year-old was released from Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Thursday, with photographs revealing that he was wearing the electronic device on his left leg. 

Duggar covered up the ankle monitor beneath blue jeans, and did not make a public statement as he was whisked away by his lawyer. 

The star will spend the next two months in home detention at a property belonging to family friends LaCount and Maria Reber.

He is scheduled to stand trial on July 6. 

The Rebers, who are a clean-cut Christian couple, told the court that they did not know Duggar well but that they are good friends with his father. 

Duggar will not be allowed to return home to his pregnant wife Anna and their six children. However, he will be allowed to spend time with his kids – as long as his wife is present. 

Duggar – who shot to fame on his family’s TV Show 19 Kids and Counting – was taken into custody last week after authorities claimed he kept a sickening trove of 200 child porn images on his computer. He has denied the allegations.

As part of his strict bail agreement, Duggar must remain with the Rebers at their home until his trial commences. 

He must have a probation officer’s permission to leave the couple’s home and can not access the internet.

During a hearing earlier this week, the Rebers assured the judge there was no WiFi at their residence, only a dial-up connection. 

Maria Reber testified: ‘We want to help the family and minister to them. My husband has made the decision and I’m here to support that decision.’  

On Friday, she was seen nailing ‘Private Property’ and  ‘No Trespassing Signs’ to the front of her property as press camp out awaiting a glimpse Duggar. 

The reality star was not seen walking around the grounds of the home and it did not appear his wife and children came to visit.
