“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson’s son is pleading for his $1 million bond to be lowered and for his trial for attempted murder be pushed back to allow him to prepare his defense.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Lauri’s son, Josh Waring, has filed an appeal in hopes of lowering his current bail of $1 million down to at least $500,000.
Waring has been behind bars in an Orange County jail since 2016. Waring was arrested following an incident outside a sober living home where he allegedly shot a man named Daniel Lopez, who survived the gunshot. He plead not guilty and the case has dragged on for years.
In his appeal, Waring claims his $1 million bail was set based on a series of mistakes. He believes the evidence shows he did not try to shoot Lopez. He claims the gunshot residue testing produced negative results.
