Lauri Peterson’s Son Josh Waring Attempted Murder Charges Dropped Then Refiled!

The OC Register has reported that attempted murder charges against Josh Waring, son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson were dropped on Friday—but then immediately refiled– after it was determined his right to a speedy preliminary hearing had been violated. Waring once again faces three counts of attempted murder.

The publication reported that during the hearing, Peterson, “sat quietly in the courtroom taking notes.”

As previously reported, Waring was charged with attempted murder after allegedly opening fire on two people in Costa Mesa and then leading cops on a wild car chase on June 20, 2016.

Prosecutors charge that Waring allegedly shot and wounded a man in the melee — and also that two other people, a man and a woman, were standing nearby but were not hit (causing prosecutors to file the two additional attempted-murder charges against him), the Register noted.

According to court reports, Waring’s public defender repeatedly requested delays for the preliminary hearing over Waring’s objections in the attempted murder case, and a judge initially denied Waring’s requests to represent himself.

Waring was appointed a new lawyer, Joel Garson, who filed a request to have the charges dropped over a violation of his civil rights. Prosecutors did not contest the motion and immediately refiled the case after a judge agreed to dismiss the charges on Friday, reports Radar Online.

Earlier this month, Josh's wife Hannah filed for divorce on Monday, September 25 — while she was behind bars for second-degree robbery — at an Orange County courthouse, citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents obtained by Us Weekly.

The couple, who separated in March 2015, are parents to 4-year-old daughter Kennedy. In the papers, Hannah indicated that Peterson adopted and has legal custody of their daughter.
