Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth reportedly left courtroom quickly without speaking to other Duggars


Josh Duggar’s trial continued on December 2, 2021. In April 2021, federal agents arrested Josh on suspicion of downloading and obtaining child pornography. Josh has pleaded not guilty to the crimes and his trial began in late November 2021. So far, it appears many members of the Duggar family are attending, including Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna Duggar. A reporter also spotted Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, at trial – although they apparently left the courtroom quickly without speaking to other members of the Duggar family when they took a break.

All eyes remain on the Duggar family when it comes to Josh Duggar’s trial. A number of Duggars can also speak during the trial. The first member of Josh’s family to speak out in court was Jim Bob Duggar. On Monday, November 29, 2021, Jim Bob testified after the prosecution called him as a witness. Josh’s dad was asked several questions about the 2015 indecent assault scandal, and Jim Bob noted that he didn’t remember all of the details. He also said they tried to deal with the incident as a family before the media got wind of what happened.

Today, December 2, 2021, other members of the Duggar family are said to have appeared in the courtroom for the trial. Jill Duggar’s husband Derick Dillard was in attendance, according to The sun. Josh Duggar’s wife Anna Duggar was also in attendance. Surprisingly, Justin Duggar and his wife, Claire Spivey, were also in attendance on December 2. And Joy-Anna Duggar along with her husband, Austin Forsyth, were there.

Jill Duggar and Jed Duggar may also be called as witnesses in the case. Their names have been added to the list of potential witnesses.

Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth reportedly left courtroom in a hurry

It doesn’t look like Joy-Anna Duggar will be speaking at all in Josh Duggar’s trial – but she can be upset by whatever is happening to her family. According to a journalist from The sun attending the trial, Joy-Anna entered the courtroom wearing a black long-sleeved gown with Austin Forsyth by her side. A reporter for the publication noted that the couple looked deeply uncomfortable.

“They look really sorry,” the reporter noted.

Additionally, the report states that Joy-Anna and Austin quickly left the courtroom once the court rose for lunch. The couple also reportedly did not stop to speak to any of the other Duggars during the trial as they left. After the hearing was over, Austin reportedly spoke with Derick Dillard and Justin Duggar. Additionally, Joy-Anna was seen hugging Justin and his stepmom Hillary Spivey around 1 p.m. at the courthouse.

Josh Duggar trial news: latest events of December 2, 2021

The Sun reporter captured the day’s events. Matthew Waller, an employee of Josh Duggar at Wholesale Motorcars, testified on December 2, 2021. The prosecution then called Jeffrey Wofford to talk about Covenant Eyes, the accountability software downloaded to Josh’s computer. Wofford testified about Covenant Eyes, the program that should have alerted Anna Duggar to any suspicious behavior on Josh’s part until a sheet music was downloaded to the computer.

Homeland Security Special Agent Jeffrey Pryor was also reportedly called in to speak, as was Marshall Kennedy, a forensic computer evidence expert who worked with Homeland Security. Finally, James Fottrell, the director of the Department of Justice for the exploitation of children, testified.

It is not known whether members of the Duggar family seen in court on December 2, including Joy-Anna Duggar, will appear in court again.
