Josh is a deputy district attorney of Los Angeles, and Beth and Mick occasionally get involved with his cases.
Josh is introduced in the first episode No Such Thing as Vampires as Beth's boyfriend.
In episode eleven Love Lasts Forever, Josh begins prosecuting Chemma Tejada, the leader of the HEM gang. Josh and Beth are both threatened to get Josh to back off the case, but he decides to go forward with pressing charges when Beth encourages him. After a failed attempt on Beth's life, Josh is kidnapped by Tejada's men Bustos and Huerta. Beth and Mick pursue the kidnappers in a car, and Mick's vampire contact Logan Griffen traces Josh's phone allowing them to catch up with Josh and the kidnappers. Just as Beth and Mick are getting Josh out of the car, Huerta shoots Josh through the backseat. Despite Mick and Beth's attempts to save his life, Josh dies. As a final option, Beth asks Mick to turn Josh into a vampire, but Mick refuses, creating a rift as Beth blames him for not saving Josh.
