Poor Lauri, she just can’t catch a break. She is going through so much.
The Real Housewives of Orange County, original cast member, Lauri Peterson has had a roller coaster ride with her son, Josh Waring. He was charged with several felony and misdemeanor charges, for attempted murder in the summer of 2016 after allegedly open firing on two people in Costa Mesa. According to Radar Online, he has now filed a motion to dismiss the attempted murder trial. According to Radar they are, “Claiming his Constitutional rights to a fair trial were violated after private phone calls were recorded and submitted to prosecutors without his consent, according to court documents.” The documents apparently claim that his calls were monitored and recorded by law enforcement and, “turned over to the investigating agency and eventually to the prosecutors in the case.”
If this is true, that means that it wouldn’t be a fair trial. Lauri, his mother, has been standing by his side throughout this. He said, “My mom knows I am innocent and she knows I am not perfect and I have a drug problem and I have had my faults and weaknesses. But she has also said, ‘you don’t understand, this isn’t him. If it was drugs there would be a 99 chance it’s true. But not this.’”
I think that as a parent, you stand by your children, no matter what. It’s admirable of Lauri. Plus she adopted his four year old daughter, so she is not only a good mom, but a great Grandma. These are some serious charges. I hope our justice system will pull through and determine the truth, whatever that may be. Sending good vibes to Lauri in the meantime!
What do you think of Lauri standing by her son and adopting her grandchild? Are you surprised that law enforcement was allegedly taping private phone calls? How do you think this case will play out?
