JOSH Duggar's aunt Deanna prayed for "justice to be served" on the first day of the disgraced star's child pornography trial.
Former Counting On star Josh, 33, has pleaded not guilty to two child pornography counts, and his trial began this week for charges stemming from his April 2021 arrest.
Amid Josh's legal battle, Deanna – who is the sister of Josh's father Jim Bob – made her feelings clear about what she wants for the outcome.
She posted on her Instagram Stories, "Justice will be served. We are believing for it," alongside a prayer hands emoji.
Deanna also shared a quote on her feed that read, "We serve a just God. He will see to it that justice is served," and captioned it: "Amen and amen."
Her daughter Amy has been equally vocal about Josh's trial and said she hopes he gets the "ultimate sentence".
She wrote on Tuesday morning: "Today is a heavy day. This whole week will be. Next week will be too. Until justice is served."
She continued with a powerful prayer for the victims involved writing: "Vengeance is mine sayeth the lord, I will repay thee.
"Please pray for the victims, and for the truth to be revealed. Pray that the judge will give the ultimate sentence."

Josh has been accused of possessing sick images that were "the worst of the worst" that authorities had ever seen.
Homeland Security special agent Gerald Faulkner said in May that downloads made from a specific file were "in the top five of the worst of the worst that I've ever had to examine."
The ex reality star has been on home confinement and has been living with third-party custodians LaCount and Maria Reber, who are longtime friends of his parents Jim Bob and his wife Michelle.
FIRST DAY OF TRIAL
He was seen arriving at the courthouse on Tuesday with his wife Anna, holding hands as they entered the building.
On Sunday, Jim Bob, 56, repeatedly claimed in court he couldn't remember the details of Josh's past admissions that he had touched underage girls, who were called Jane Does 1 to 4, People reported.
In 2015, it emerged that Jim Bob had told police that Josh had confessed to touching minors in the family home between 2002 and 2003.
Josh admitted the molestation in a statement at the time on his Facebook page, however, he never faced charges.
The former reality star's estranged sister Jill and his brother Jedidiah will also be testifying as witnesses in the trial this week – but it is not known if it's for the prosecution or the defense.
It has been said that Josh's trial could last until December 3, and if found guilty, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
Amid all of the chaos, his wife Anna welcomed their seventh child, a daughter they named Madyson.
He has had unlimited access to his children with Anna present.
