Josh Waring, the son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson has reached a plea deal and is set to be released from prison. Waring was on trial for several counts including attempted murder from a July 2016 shooting.

However he pleaded guilty on Friday to several felony counts including assault with a firearm, evading a police officer, 2 counts of assault, hit-and-run with property damage and battery according to TMZ.

Josh's attorney, Joel Garson, told the outlet that his client will get time served thus will be released on Friday.

Waring has been behind bars for four years. During his prison sentence, he was attacked by another inmate in October 2019. Josh suffered injuries to his face and chest, getting 20 stitches.

In June 2018, Waring also alleged a sheriff’s deputy opened fire with a pepper ball gun in the unit where Waring was housed.

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.
