Josh & Anna Smuggar: A Series of Unfortunate Events

Recommended Posts

- Tomorrow Josh will be released to the Reavers with close GPS monitoring. Restricted to this residence except for working, education, church, medical services, meeting with lawyers, court ordered obligation, or other activities approved IN ADVANCE by the probation office.

 

 

I doubt the two I highlighted will be an issue.

 

I feel bad for Mrs. Reavers. Not only will she be in t he house all day with someone she isn't comfortable with, she stated so in court to be used against her. 

 

So Anna can go to the Reavers home and she's fine supervision? God I hope the bond is too high to pay.

Also Mrs. Reaver said her daughter isn't cool with the situation. Which is understandable.

but it has to be where he is staying or in a court approved location - not the warehouse or the TTH it seems

Since he can't be around minor children, that's not many places the court can approve.

I think the ruling stated there could be no piano lessons given.  Aside from which what parent in their right mind is going to let their kid go to that house??

It seems the Reber's daughter gives lessons to a few students and they will relocate the lessons

How much $ did the Reevers get for babysitting Joshua? 
No way they are doing this for free.

All else aside, this seems terribly unfair to the Reavers. 

I doubt that Ms. Reaver gives those piano lessons for free - and I would also bet hands down that she already lost some of that income last year because of Covid. I realize that group tends to have a lot of Covid denialists, but at least initially I have to assume that at least some parents cancelled at least a few piano lessons - and of course if any of her students did come down with Covid, that also would have led to more cancelled piano lessons.

And now, of course, she can't have piano lessons in her house, so either she has to give up the piano lessons - presumably something she enjoys doing and something that brings in what I'm guessing is some much needed income, or she has to go to somewhere else - either the homes of her students or a church building, travel that digs into her free time.

I hope they're getting some sort of financial compensation for this, and not just prayers. 

Well they hope they are getting some compensation, but not guaranteed.  Remember JB is cheap and I'm sure he will twist it into payment of prayers or some other nonsense.

Also that poor daughter...so once again all the women have to make all the sacrifices for the men.

Probably to back-date some cold cases. It's very typical upon arrests for sexual crimes that the criminal has to give a DNA sample. The Central Park jogger case got solved this way.

I hope the Rebers have a big house because anna and the kids are probably going to be there a lot. Maybe the mother in law suite type set up has room for them all.....maybe it's a pole barn/warehouse...

I am sure JB called this "good sweet friend" he hasn;t seen for a few years because he works at the VA in some capacity and the prison chaplain ministry thing would sound good to a judge. Mr Revear has not done prison ministry since covid rules were put it place he said

If Josh can work I guess JB can stick him on a construction detail as long as no children are around.  They were nuts if they thought he would stay out of trouble being at a crappy car lot all day with time on his hands.

Mrs. Reaver Reber doesn't give the piano lessons. Their (I think adult) daughter gives the lessons at their house. Mrs. Reaver Reber testified that the daughter can give the lessons somewhere else. My reading of the recap of the testimony is, that the daughter gives "some" piano lessons there, not like it's a full time business.

Edited by Jeeves · Reason: It's "Reber" not "Reaver." Sigh.

How can any judge think this is ok??????? These children are in the same age range as the CP found on his divices!

It amazes me how little punishment these disgusting ass pigs get. Fuck Mr. Reavers for allowing Josh to stay there. Mrs. Reavers clearly did not want him there and yet....UGH!

From the judges decision:

"Seriousness of the danger Josh poses to the community: The court does not know. Josh has not been convicted of being a danger to anyone. There is no criminal history that suggests Josh has displayed a pattern of violence to anyone. But Josh's children, his sibling's children, and his minor brothers and sisters are all part of the community that need to be protected from him.

This is a very close call. The U.S. Attorney has not met its burden."

I thought in these specific types of cases, it was the defendant that needed to meet the burden of proof???

If only we knew how that phone call went between JB and Mr. Reavers. I really want to know. 

 

The wife was sandbagged and all but said 'I'm in a cult where I have to listen to my husband.' What the hell. It's one thing to grant Josh bond, but, to them? After that testimony? 

 

I'm assuming Josh has to give DNA for the very reason I really don't want to have to type out. But he's totally fine to be out. He's never harmed anyone, except the five girls he's admitted too. I'm not including the Ashley Madison woman because Josh has admitted to the others. FFS

"The court is mindful, however, that this conduct happened a long time ago. And it happened when Josh was a child. That fact, and that fact alone, are in Josh's favor. It is concerning to court that Josh has committed that he has an issue with pornography; that is different than child pornography. But what the court has heard is that prior to images being downloaded to Josh's computer, Covenant Eyes was installed which is a program that acts as a deterrent. The court has also heard testimony that Josh's wife may have been his accountability partner on that. The court is not making a determination on that, but it concerns the court."

 

And I don't understand this part either? He installed a partition to deliberately conceal his deliberate attempts to access images of the same ages as his sisters were -- and his children are. So why is she letting Anna be the supervisor when on unlimited child visits?

And obviously nobody -- Anna, JB and M -- pressured him to find himself a slate of jobs to contribute to the upkeep of his too-big family and have enough other things to do to distract him from his "porn addiction" that they all know about for at least some hours each day.

What a sacrifice for her husband though - he’s going to have to watch her wait on Josh, cook his meals, clean up after him, do his laundry, etc. That will be exhausting for him.

It sounds like he used Tor ( decently anonymous )  to download bit torrent files of the CSA ( not anonymous at all).  Bit Torrent is  just like a giant neon sign Pointing to the computer that is accessing the files. I would doubt that he paid anything for the images, but then I don’t know that world very well. Hathor? Thank God he thinks he’s so smart but is actually so stupid

Actually for Mrs Reaver's sake I hope this is the case.  I really don't think Josh even wants the kids, let alone Anna, around, but if she's fool enough to think he does at least Mrs Reaver won't be alone with the bastard.

I wonder if Jim Bob would be allowed to pay them, legally.  I don't see why not.  I don't think that would make them any more or less credible.  I  mean, those "crazy Reavers" are already straining credulity for me.  They'd seem more sensible and savvy if they were getting paid.

For our legal-minded friends:  would the Reavers be able to be charged with something if they didn't report Josh for breaking some rule?  Or if they didn't remove all of their weapons from the home (yikes)?  Or would that just revoke Josh's bond?

Kudos to the people who called that they'd ask an elder to be the third party guardian. Zella, do you know if the headship thing is widely known in the community? I read the summary and saw "headship says yes, so I say yes (please no!)" but someone who doesn't know that dynamic might assume an (understandable) reluctant consent. 

Realistically, you aren't going to find anyone to enthusiastically agree to babysit someone with these charges for months, so I hope the judge didn't mistake that for Mrs Reaver having no choice at all in the matter (as she likely didn't).
