I wonder which of the Duggar family and friends will show up for the sentencing tomorrow.
Anyone know what time it's scheduled for?

Of course there are also other parents ( ahem — Anna) who will stay because they are desperately in lurve and put the abuser 1st. She’s the most frustrating type because despite her indoctrination she does have more options than many women.
I see no way that the molestations, then Ashley Madison, then the CSAM haven't set off red lights in Anna's head. I don't think she's the brightest, but a three-digit IQ isn't needed here. She has also been trained to be a loyal and submissive helpmeet and is in a position where persons of authority (JB and her father, as examples) support Josh. She has a young baby along with six other kids, probably desperately wants to avoid the media, and I imagine feels fairly safe with a roof, food, and other bills being reliably paid. I really don't see her budging, at least for a good while. She appears pretty adept at creating an emotional bubble for herself, with an A+ for suspending judgement and obeying her marriage vows.
I doubt Josh wants any more kids and would have been fine with no more than two. I suspect Anna views intimacy as reinforcement that he loves her and isn't straying, and also enjoys having lots of babies. If they're still together when he gets out - by which I mean he hasn't decided to leave her - then I'd expect them to let nature take it's course but no IVF, etc.
Hope someone supportive is staying with Anna and the kids. If Anna is stressed enough, which she should be, then the kids must be feeling it too.

This is when I haaaaaate being part of an international forum. I am sitting here at 8.50am Wednesday morning on the 25th and I think it is a perfectly fine time for the court to do its thing. Now I have to wait for Arkansas to catch up 😬
Yeah, it's still late afternoon on the 24th here (DC area). One night's sleep away from finding out that number. Still guessing 7.75 years. Depending on the time of the sentencing, perhaps you can stay up late?
