There was a video of the couple at Top Golf with some friends, and they appeared to be enjoying their time away. After a very heavy month so far, Austin and Joy-Anna likely needed time to regroup and have some peace and fun with friends.

Austin Forsyth attended Josh Duggar trial daily

Josh Duggar was found guilty of receipt and possession of child pornography on December 9. His trial began on December 1 and went until closing arguments finished on December 8. It took the jury less than 24 hours to deliberate before finding him guilty on both charges.

Austin Forsyth attended the trial from the beginning, sitting in the back for most of the testimony as some of the other Duggar family members surrounded Anna Duggar in the front row. He listened to the prosecution and defense testimony, including when Bobye Holt testified about what happened to Josh’s four sisters (including Joy-Anna Duggar) and a family friend.

Joy-Anna showed up for a few days, and she was caught looking distraught. It was a lot of information to take in, and both she and Austin wanted to hear the facts for themselves.

When they released their statement, Joy-Anna and Austin made it a point to say they agreed with the verdict. They also said, “Anna and her children,” with no mention of Josh. It was clear where they stand, and it will be interesting to see how the couple moves forward with the Duggar family in general.

They have kept busy with their two little ones, Gideon and Evelyn Mae. Joy-Anna often spends time outside with the kids and occasionally visits Austin on job sites. She is good about keeping her followers updated on what’s happening in her life. They appear to be going back to a more normal life following Josh’s trial, and that’s a good thing.
