The deeply religious Duggar family (as in the 19 Kids and Counting Duggars) were the victims of an extortion attempt several months back. On Thursday a judge sentenced Teresa Hunt to four months of house arrest for attempting the crime.
According to a report from RadarOnline, Hunt claimed that the Duggar’s cousin, Amy Duggar, was having an illicit affair with singer James Garrett. It turns out a grudge Hunt held over a payment dispute for professional photography she did for Garrett triggered the senseless criminal act.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are the parents of nineteen children and the grandparents of a granddaughter and a grandson. They live highly moral lives as does their extended family including cousin Amy Duggar. Hunt very clearly knew her allegations could wreak havoc for the entire Duggar family, but what she didn’t understand was their strong faith in God and in one another. The Duggar’s knew Amy didn’t do what Hunt claimed. James Garrett even came to her defense with a series of photos that showed the only relationship the two shared was a musical one.
Do you think Teresa Hunt’s sentence is harsh enough for the crime she tried committing? After an attempt at extorting $10,000 from the Duggars and Discovery Communications—the company that owns the TLC network on which 19 Kids and Counting appears—it seems she’s been let off the hook very easily.

Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue, oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. what will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives or fall among the slain. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his governament and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.
Isaiah 9: 6-7
I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.
“At the time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out an meet him!’ Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, g to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins whi were ready wnet in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’ But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’ Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”
No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. ” I tell you the truth,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
