An explosive In Touch Weekly story in 2015 revealed that Josh’s father Jim Bob had reported to the Arkansas State Police that his son had molested five young girls on multiple occasions when he was 14 and 15.
He reportedly touched their breasts and genitals while they were asleep in their rooms.
According to a police report of the incident, four of the five underage girls were his sisters, and Jim Bob allegedly learned of it when Josh confessed to him in 2002.

Josh was allegedly disciplined at home, but the sexual abuse continued into the following year with multiple additional incidents, some of which now happened when his sisters and a babysitter were awake.
Jim again waited to alert authorities, instead raising the matter with his church elders first.
Josh was sent to spent three months in 2003 at the Institute in Basic Life Principles Training Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, according to People.
The institute’s founder, Bill Gothard, was accused of sexually harassing or assaulting 34 women in 2014 and resigned shortly afterward.
After Josh returned, his father took him to see an Arkansas state trooper, at which point he allegedly confessed to the molestations.

Despite being a mandated reporter who is legally required to alert Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline to instances of sexual abuse, the trooper took no official action and only gave Josh a ‘stern talk.’
After the police report on Josh’s potential misconduct was reported, one of the victims, who may have still been a minor at the time, asked an Arkansas judge to destroy the original police report and any remaining public records related to it.
The victim’s identity has never been revealed, but it may have been one of Josh’s own sisters who successfully had the report and all related documents destroyed.
After the initial reporting, Josh resigned his position at the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated as an anti-gay hate group.
In 2015, Josh was found to have created an account on the site Ashley Madison, which facilitates affairs, primarily for married men.
Porn star Danica Dillon also sued Josh in November 2015 for assaulting her during previously consensual sex at a Philadelphia strip club that year. She later chose to have the suit dismissed.
