Former RHOC Lauri Peterson’s son Josh Waring has been in jail charged with three counts of attempted murder for quite some time. His bail is set at a million dollars. The local journalist seem certain he is innocent and being set up.
Lauri is apparently unable or unwilling to get him out of jail. He has yet to have a court date.
“I am horrified, sad, brokenhearted, disgusted and appalled by my son’s condition! This situation should have never been allowed to happened as Josh is SEP, which is that he is never allowed contact with anyone! He is in a module that everyone in it is protective custody for varying reasons and never allowed to have contact with each other or anyone, ” Lauri Peterson told Us Weekly earlier this month. This was after Josh had been attacked with razor blades resulting in multiple stitches to his face and twenty staples to his chest!
Tonight, a reader sent me a link to this site that you must read in it’s entirety. Here is a short excerpt. But really, click the link. You need to read the whole disgusting thing.
Deputies loathe Waring for multiple reasons, including he played the primary role in exposing OCSD’s latest scandal over their illegal surveillance of inmate communications with defense attorneys and helped lead a hunger strike to protest the continual mistreatment of other inmates.
He’s now the poster victim underscoring the depths of remorseless corruption at Sheriff Don Barnes’ 4,000-employee department with a billion-dollar annual budget.
In August, after hearing detailed reports that Waring had been beaten and psychologically tortured by deputies, I notified Barnes’ executive staff that reporters were watching. But instead of delivering jail safety with the self-proclaimed “utmost of integrity,” deputies may have responded by creating situations in which other inmates have gotten opportunities to attack Waring, which is quite a feat given he’s in a “total separation” section of protective custody.
Joel Garson, Waring’s attorney, says Barnes’ staff has “engaged in a scheme to severely injure or kill” Josh. According to Garson, officers retaliated against his client by concocting a lame excuse to move him for 10 days to the “HOLE,” a dark cell with a defective toilet and the smell of feces and urine. On another occasion, Josh was stripped, thrown in a cold cell, denied his seizure medicine and ignored for two days.
An OC local sent me the story. This is an excerpt from that email
At best the Orange county sheriffs can be brutal, and I think they are out for Josh because he uncovered their wiretapping of inmates. I somewhat feel sorry for Josh, because it seemed like he just fell by the wayside when his mom became involved and married George Peterson, she took both the younger and older daughter to live with them, but not Josh.There was a reporter for the OC weekly that even took Josh in the beginning, then he ended up living with George Petersons first wife, who was living with Dennis Rodman at the time, this was all documented in the OC weekly. I hope Josh survives this.
