More bad news for former RHOC Lauri Peterson and her son Josh.
According to E! Online Josh is getting into even more trouble despite being locked up. The troubled son of a former housewife was recently charged with possession of contraband while in prison.
Reports state that Josh ‘“knowingly and unlawfully” had an alcoholic beverage called Pruno while in the men’s maximum security jail. The crime is considered a felony.’
He is currently in prison due to a previous incident that involved allegedly shooting a man and then fleeing the scene in a stolen car.
Lauri’s son has a long history of legal issues that include drug possession, attempted murder, theft, hit and run, battery and now the felony of possessing contraband while in prison. It’s clear that the root of all his issues is drug and alcohol abuse. This is truly sad as addiction is a disease and it’s clear that this addiction is what’s behind all of his issues.
While it’s not clear how he was able to get the contraband, Josh has been struggling for years with sobriety so unfortunately it’s not a surprise.
Lauri seems to have exhausted her options regarding her son. She and George have officially adopted Josh’s daughter as the girl’s mother also has substance abuse issues. Lauri has also spoken out in the past stating that she understands addiction is a disease and she views her son not as a bad person, but rather a sick person.
We last saw Lauri causing drama for Vicki Gunvalson on the Canadian ski slopes making some ugly accusations towards the OG. With all that she has going on in her personal life, I don’t think we will be seeing more of her on camera anytime soon.
