Jana Duggar looks solemn in first appearance at court for brother Josh's child pornography trial with father Jim Bob

A SOMBER Jana Duggar walked out of the courthouse today where her older brother Josh is on trial for child pornography.

The normally spotlight-shy sister made the rare public appearance on day five of the trial.


Jana, 31, wore a black dress that cut off at her knees, coupled with aplaid overcoat.

She walked next to her father, Jim Bob,  who was forced to testify last week.

According to a Sun reporter inside the courtroom, Jana seemed to be in better mood when around family members indoors, as she sat at next to Anna and Jason the entire time in the first row.

She seemed to be in decidedly high spirits laughing and mingling with family during breaks, including Josh, who would walk over to the row.

JANA'S LIFE

Jana still lives with her parents Jim Bob and Michelle as well as her younger siblings at the family's Arkansas compound.

She has been labeled Cinderella Duggar by fans, as she is the oldest unmarried sibling of the clan's 19 children.

The reality star was rumored to be dating 27-year-old pilot Stephen Wissmann after they spent Christmas together.

However Stephen sparked speculation that they had split in September after he was spotted dancing with "other girls" at a party.

JIM BOB APPEARS

Also on Tuesday, Jim Bob made his first appearance at court amidst his oldest son's trial.

Our reporter notes he sat next to Austin and remained expressionless, just listening to the the testimony and looking up when evidence was presented on screen.

The father of 19 looked miserable as he turned up to support Josh, who is facing two counts of child pornography stemming from his April 2021 arrest.

The fundamentalist looked determined as he arrived at the Arkansas courtroom, wearing a dark suit and obscuring his features with a blue face mask.

Also in attendance were Jim Bob's son Jed and his daughter Jill's husband Derick Dillard.

JOSH'S PROLEMS

Josh's trial began last Wednesday for child pornography charges stemming from his April 2021 arrest.

The 33-year-old, who has pleaded not guilty, has been accused of possessing sick images of child pornography, which have been described as some of "the worst of the worst" that authorities had ever seen.

He faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.
