Jana, 31, was cited for colocando em perigo o bem-estar de um menor em setembro. 9, according to a court document obtained by PEOPLE last week. She pleaded not guilty to the charge and is scheduled to appear in court for a bench trial on Jan. 10.
No início desta semana, a 19 Crianças e contando alum said it “was a case of a child slipping out of the house when you turn your back for a moment.”
“Eu estava cuidando de babá alguns meses atrás quando uma das crianças saiu sozinha. Um transeunte que viu a criança chamou a polícia,” Jana escreveu no instagram terça. “Isso resultou em uma citação por escrito, bem como um acompanhamento com a Previdência da Criança que concluiu que foi um acidente e a criança saiu ilesa.”
Later that same day, Amy, 34, seemingly addressed Jana’s situation on Twitter, escrita, “I believe that if you are a parent you should watch your own children. It’s not right to always have someone else watching them for you.”
“OK let me clear something up,” Amy contínuo in a second tweet. “I’m not talking about loving good parents that work and provide for their families. I support that! Claro! I’m talking about people who rely on Aunt’s [sic] or friends or anyone that takes advantage of people. Just simply because they can.”
“Your kids even your older kids should not be your built in babysitter. Your kids no matter what their age is should be able to live a normal adolescent life. Helping out every once in a while is great but if you’re gonna have that many kids then be responsible for them,” Amy concluído.
The niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar previously spoke out in support of Jana when the reports of her citation first surfaced. “I will call out what is right and I will call out what is wrong. This couldn’t have been intentional,” Amy posted on her Instagram Story.
“Aposto que você estava exausto, estressado e apenas emocionalmente desgastado,” ela adicionou. “Assistir várias crianças é difícil! Bc há tantos deles e você só tem dois olhos!! It’s a very sad situation going on and my heart goes out to @janamduggar love you.”
“She’s without question one of the most amazing women I know and I’d trust her with my kids any day of the week,” Jessa, 29, added of Jana. “Do me a favor — give the girl a break, and all you perfect humans go back to living your lives.”
