Jana Duggar breaks silence after she's charged with child endangerment & insists incident was just a 'scary accident’

JANA Duggar broke her silence with a message to her followers after she was charged with child endangerment.

The 31-year-old insisted it was all just a big, “scary accident."

Jana wrote on her Instagram Story on Tuesday: “I prefer a more private life, but I know my last name means that everything we do is open to public criticism and interest, especially during this time.”

She claimed: “The raw facts: I was babysitting a few months ago when one of the children wandered outside alone.

“A passerby who saw the child called the police.

“This resulted in a written citation, as well as a follow-up with child welfare who concluded that it was an accident and the child was unharmed.”

The Counting On alum continued: “They recognized it was a case of a child slipping out of the house when you turn your back for a moment.

“It all happened so quickly and was scary.

“I am grateful for law enforcement and those who protect and serve our community. I was certainly never arrested like some may have implied.”

“In the end I was just upset at myself that it had happened at all, but so thankful it all ended safely and that’s truly what mattered the most to me.”

Last week, The Sun confirmed that Jana was charged with endangering a child, just days after her brother Josh was found guilty on two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Jana was charged on September 10 and posted $430 bail.

Her next court date is on January 10, 2022 at 1:30 pm, a clerk confirmed to The Sun.

The 31-year-old note to her fans comes after her sister Jessa defended her on Monday by also trying to reveal why Jana was charged and demanding that fans gave her a "break."
