UPDATE! Josh Warning did show up today to accept his plea deal. He pled guilty to six counts: (1) assault with a firearm, (2) evading a peace officer, (3) 2 counts of assault, (4)hit-and-run with property damage, (5) battery. He should be leaving any moment now if he has not already. Not sure if it was an Alford plea, or if it even matters with his record.
Former RHOC Lauri Peterson’s son, Josh Waring’s court date for the attempted murder of Daniel Lopez in 2016 is coming up next Tuesday, March 10, 2020. Josh has been incarcerated for nearly four years. During the entire time he has been adamant about his innocence. Josh has claimed that Lopez told the officer that Josh was not the person who shot him. He faces life in prison.
According to Josh Waring, he was there at the scene but was not involved in the shooting which took place outside of a sober home of some sort. There was allegedly a drug deal going on according to one Tamara Tattles source. Josh has repeatedly stated and another man on the scene, Bryan Goldstein was the shooter. Josh is claiming the entire event is being falsely portrayed by the police because Bryan is a confidential informant. He has insisted that Goldstein has even killed someone since the 2016 incident.
Is Josh’s Nightmare Finally Over?
In addition, Josh’s year in jail, despite not having a fair trial have been extremely harsh. He has suffered many serious injuries at the hands of other prisoners who he claims were paid by corrupt government officials. Recently, after another severe beating he was transferred to another jail for protection. However, he has been in solitary confinement for the entire stay according to Tamara Tattles sources close to Josh.
Late this afternoon, I was told by a source who is not close to Josh, but someone who feels he is guilty that Josh Waring will be pleading guilty tomorrow. This seemed unlikely to me. Josh has been begging for a trial for years to prove his innocence. He has been hoping for testimony from Goldstein but that doesn’t appear to be happening. He would have to have immunity from the prosecuting attorney in order to clear his name. That does not seem to be in the cards based on information from both sides.
TAMARA TATTLES EXCLUSIVE SOURCE IS SAYING that he will plead guilty tomorrow and take a plea deal for time served. He should be released tomorrow and his very long nightmare will be over. I hope that this is correct. We will know for sure tomorrow.
