Although the judge ordered the police report destroyed, In Touch magazine, and a few other sites obtained the Offense Report under the Freedom of Information Act. The documents were obtained prior to the record being expunged. The report is heavily redacted to conceal the names of the victims, but it can be viewed on the In Touch website.
Judge Stacey Zimmerman’s motive for expunging Josh Duggar’s Offense Record is not clear. However, if her decision was motivated by a desire to make the story go away, it may have been a poor choice. With her past ties to Governor Huckabee proudly touted on her 2014 campaign web page, her decision to order police to destroy Josh Duggar’s Offense Record is bound to arouse suspicions surrounding her motives.
