Jana Duggar Pleads Guilty to Child Endangerment Charge, Settles Outside of Court

Jana Duggar’s charge of endangering the welfare of a child has been adjudicated, Fox News can exclusively report.

Jana, 31, was charged with the misdemeanor in September, court documents revealed. On Tuesday, an official at the district court in Elm Springs, Arkansas confirmed to Fox News Digital the case has been settled.

Documents obtained by Fox News Digital shows the star pleaded guilty on Dec. 15 following her initial not guilty plea. She was ordered to pay an $880 fine. An attorney for Jana did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

News of Jana’s charge came to light in December, just one day after her older brother, Josh Duggar, was convicted on two counts of receiving and possessing child pornography. Jana broke her silence on the charge last month, explaining that one of the children she was babysitting escaped outdoors alone. She described it as an “accident.”
