Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar covered up their son Josh's disturbing sex crimes for years— and the 19 Kids And Counting couple kept even more sick skeletons in their closet.
In August 2004, just a year after Josh was caught molesting his sisters in the family home, an Arkansas businessman set a hearing for a restraining order against seemingly harmless dad Jim Bob, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
According to Arkansas' Washington County Circuit Court documents obtained by Radar, James Penny and Wireless Technologies Corporation filed a motion for a temporary restraining order hearing on August 2, 2004.
The bad blood between the two men went back to 2003, when the ultra-Christian father of 19, now 49, sued Penny and Wireless Technologies Corporation for failing to vacate a building he owned in Springdale.
A judge ordered the defendants to move out by July 18, 2003.
Three months later, the judge ordered Wireless Technologies Corporation to pay Jim Bob $16,679.30 to honor their lease agreement.
The next August, Filtek Corp., the company for which Penny served as vice president, called for the hearing to obtain a restraining order against Jim Bob.
The motion was ultimately denied, and the Washington County Sheriff's Office was granted permission to sell items seized under a Writ of Execution.
