Josh Waring sues Orange County for $1.4M over jail phone calls

Josh Waring may become one of the richest inmates behind bars.

Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson’s son filed a claim for money or damages against Orange County, Calif., to the tune of $1.4 million, according to court documents obtained via The Blast.

He claimed in the filing that “between August 2016 and the present, at least 1,400 [of his jail] calls were intercepted, recorded and turned over to the investigating prosecution team thus violating a court order,” and now he wants $1,000 per alleged violation.

The Orange County Sheriff Office claimed that the recordings were a third-party company error, and law enforcement officers did not illegally listen to any of the calls.

Waring, 30, is currently behind bars on attempted murder charges stemming from a shooting in 2016. He maintained from the time of his arrest that he was wrongfully accused and that Bryan Goldstein, nicknamed Ace, is the real culprit.

He recently told Page Six that he wants to become a lawyer once he is acquitted of the charges.
