The former 19 Kids and Counting star was found guilty of receiving and possessing child pornography in December 2021. He is currently serving out his sentence at Federal Correctional Facility Seagoville in Texas.
"Josh, I will not reach out to, honestly, because it's just so heartbreaking. I can't, I literally can't, and I don't want to," the mother-of-one — who shares 3-year-old son Daxton with her husband, Dillon — shared in a recent interview.
"I'll just be honest. ... His hand was stuck and found in the cookie jar with Ashley Madison," she continued, referring to the 2015 scandal when Josh was caught on a dating website for married people looking to have affair. "His hand was stuck in the cookie jar when the [abuse] stuff about the precious sisters [Jill and Jessa] came out. And his hand was stuck again in the cookie jar when the last scandal, it just took the cake."
"It's so filthy and so wrong and so evil, and I hate it," she heartbreakingly confessed. "It just hurts my heart so much. I'm not going to reach out. I am done with that. It's just so sad. So for me, I won't reach out."

"I've tried on Instagram, I've tried on Twitter. She wants nothing to do with it at all, and that's her decision," the former TLC star explained. "I understand she has a lot of kids, and I understand that she's in a very broken place, I'm sure."
"Honestly, it sucks," she continued. "It just sucks because I want to be there and I want to help, and it doesn't have to involve cameras or fame or anything. It's just family reaching out to family. Unfortunately, she doesn't see it."
"My husband [Dillon] and I actually were talking when all this first came out, and I said, 'Honey, we have room to welcome all of those kids and Anna into our home. We have bunk beds, we could do something really cool,'" she told the outlet. "And he was like, 'You're right ... We could.' He was like, 'Let's reach out and see what we can do.'"
"I offered it, and that's really all I can do is just hope and pray that she opens her eyes," Amy said. "That's all you can do."
Amy spoke with People about her respective feelings about contacting Josh and Anna.
