The famously conservative Duggars seemed to be models of wholesome family life, but son Josh was hiding a dark past: He allegedly molested five young girls as a teen. Subscribe now for an inside look at the Duggars' dark family secrets, only in PEOPLE.

How much did Jessa (Duggar) Seewald's husband know of his brother-in-law's alleged molestation of five underage girls as a teen?

In her statement to PEOPLE, Josh Duggar's wife, Anna, claimed that she knew what her husband had done ever since she and her family "first visited the Duggar home," referring to the incidents of alleged sexual abuse as "teenage mistakes."

Was Ben Seewald given the same information? In an Instagram post that has recently resurfaced, Seewald, 19, thanks his parents for how they raised him and, at the same time, criticizes those parents "abusing their children, earning the condemnation of God."

Online Commenter Warned About Josh Duggar Molestation Accusations 8 Years Ago

Originally posted 05/24/2015 06:05PM

When allegations that 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar molested five young girls resurfaced this week, fans of the TLC reality show were shocked. To the millions of viewers who've tuned in each week, the Duggars personified family values, from their strict rules about modesty to their dedication to religion.

The illusion was shattered Thursday, when Josh, 27, admitted he "acted inexcusably" as a teenager. But rumors of the former Christian lobbyist's past are nothing new: They first surfaced online eight years ago. As Gawker's Defamer points out, a commenter called "Alice" recounted the allegations on a blog, ibiblio.org, in May 2007. Other sites such as FreeJinger.org have long cited Alice's comments.

Of the 2,460 people who live in Tontitown, Arkansas, none have made quite as many headlines as the 19-plus – and counting – in the Duggar family.

Since Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar invited cameras into their lives in 2008, viewers have seen the TLC stars through courtships, new additions and no shortage of controversy. Most recently, eldest son Josh Duggar spoke out in response to reports that he was once accused of molesting five underage girls as a teen.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably, for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," Josh, who resigned from his position at the Family Research Council as a result of the accusations becoming public, told PEOPLE in a statement. TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule amid the reports.
