Josh was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. He grew up with his older brother William (who is holding him in this picture) and his younger brother Luther. For a while, Josh and his family also lived in Adams County. Josh's parents split up not long before he was arrested.
Josh has over two thousand supporters from all over the world. People from the U.S., Mexico, England, Germany, Puerto Rico, France, Indonesia, Brazil, Malaysia, Ghana, and several other countries have been following Josh's life for the past couple of years. United they stand for his freedom.
