Josh Waring who is the son of ex-Real Housewives of Orange County’ Lauri Peterson is out of jail from his attempted murder charge, after a plea deal.
According to the report by TMZ, the court documents obtained by them showed Josh Waring pled guilty on Friday to felony counts of assault with a firearm, evading a peace officer, 2 counts of assault, hit-and-run with property damage and battery.
The report also added that Waring’s attorney, Joel Garson, said that Josh Waring will get time served and be released later today.
Josh Waring has been locked up for nearly 4 years while waiting for his trial since his July 2016 arrest when he was accused of shooting a man outside a sober living home. He initially pled not guilty.
He was ambushed back in October 2019 at the Orange County jail in Santa Ana and brutally assaulted by another inmate wielding razors wrapped in towels.
Josh Waring as reported by TMZ, suffered deep gashes to his chest and face. Waring’s lawyer believed the attack could have been retaliation against Josh for filing a federal lawsuit against Orange County and its Sheriff’s Department for violating his civil rights.
He was transferred to another jail shortly after the attack, but now he’s walking free.
