Judge Orders Dental Care For Lauri Peterson’s Son Josh Waring!

On Friday, a judge ordered Santa Ana police to take Josh Waring, son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson, from jail to a dentist in Yorba Linda next week for dental care that has been held up over a dispute between the city and county on who would pay the $4,000 bill, reports the Orange County Register.

Waring filed a number of grievances including that he was not receiving the correct dosage of anti-addiction prescription medication and required dental care for an exposed nerve and needs five crowns.

Waring petitioned for dental care, which has been held up over whether the city or county should pay the bill. However, Orange County Superior Court Judge Jonathan ruled that Waring “is suffering from legitimate and painful dental issues,” so the defendant must be taken to a dentist in Yorba Linda on Tuesday, and for follow-up visits to fit him for the crowns.

Josh was moved from the Orange County Main jail facility to a smaller facility at the Santa Ana Police Department after being attacked by another inmate. Josh and his attorney Joel Garson asked for the transfer because they claimed he had been targeted by other inmates and harassed by deputies who work in the jail.

Santa Ana jail officials sought to evict Waring and return him to the Orange County Jail system, but Orange County Superior Court Judge Jonathan Fish denied the request. Santa Ana officials had argued they had a right to do it based on its contract with the county.

However, Waring argued that he knew nothing about those terms and that he feared going back to the county’s jail, saying he might be attacked again by an inmate or targeted for abuse by sheriff’s deputies.

Waring is also part of a federal class-action lawsuit alleging a variety of issues at the county jails. Waring’s case also brought to light a scandal involving the improper recording of phone calls between attorneys and their clients from the jails.

Waring has been behind bars since 2016. 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. Waring was eventually captured and charged with three counts of attempted murder and several other felony and misdemeanor charges.

Waring and Peterson insist he’s innocent of the charges. His bail is set for more than $1 million.
