When Josh Duggar betrayed his wife and family by turning from child molester to adult film addict, he walked into a whole new world of hurt. Josh apparently figured that because sex for money is what adult film stars do, he could have his way, whatever way he wanted, when he convinced one to meet him in a hotel room.
Danica Dillon, whose real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup, admits to consenting to sex with Duggar and that he paid her $1500 for her “time.” The agreement came after Duggar spent a reported $600 in lap dances at a strip club Dillon was being showcased at. What happened next will land Duggar in court facing a $500K lawsuit for assault and battery and mental duress.
According to Dillon, Josh Duggar is a monster. She says he “assaulted her to the point of physical and emotional injuries.” She says a psychiatrist is treating her for “severe anxiety.” She alleges that Duggar was so rough with her that she felt as though she was being raped, but admits that the sex was “consensual.” she also says that Duggar apologized a month later, assuring her that he had just gotten caught up in the moment and convincing her to give it another shot.

He then allegedly repeated the behavior, assaulting her again. Dillon has already retained counsel and a lawsuit has been filed. According to People Magazine:
Marc J. Frumer, Dillon’s attorney, tells PEOPLE that he expects the case to be resolved in nine to 18 months, though he notes the discovery process may be delayed because Duggar is in rehab and may not have a lawyer yet.
As for his client consenting to have sex with Duggar, ‘while sex may be consensual, an assault and battery is clearly beyond the scope of any consent,’ he says. Dillon, he adds, ‘is seeking justice for herself.’
Dillon will have many skeptics and certainly her profession and the fact that she consented to relations with Duggar not once but twice will make this an uphill battle for her. Her opponent is certainly not squeaky clean, and since civil court has a different set of rules for evidence than criminal court, Josh Duggar’s history of assault on children will be fair play.
It will definitely be interesting to see how it plays out. Danica Dillon may be considered by many to be “immoral.” Her choice of careers may even bring her credibility into question, but the bottom line is, she’s a human being. Consenting to sex wasn’t consent to abuse her.
