Dark Knight Shooter James Holmes Has Judge Enter 'NOT GUILTY' Plea

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

james holmes not guilty plea

The shooter behind Aurora, Colorado's Dark Knight massacre let the judge do his work for him on Tuesday.

James Holmes wasn't ready to enter his plea by the judge's deadline, so the judge entered 'not guilty' by default.

However, the judge will allow James to enter a 'not guilty by reason of insanity' plea at a later date if he chooses.

As we've previously discussed, James is being charged for 142 crimes, including 24 first degree murders as well as 116 counts of attempted murder.

Once the jury makes their verdict, the judge will then decide if he is to face life in prison or a death sentence if the verdict is guilty… which, everyone is assuming it will be.

    It's really sad that a crime of this caliber could be swept under the rug with an insanity plea. This justice system thinks anyone who could pull off such an elaborate plan should be deemed insane and locked in a nice warm room?

    Re: Angela430 – I agree with you. (I dont mean to offend or upset anyone here) This is one of the few times the monster didnt take his own life, and I ignorantly hoped it would be a chance to see true justice, and closure for those involved.

    And the meds that turned him homicidal are STILL on the market…..

    He knew what he was doing was against the law, therefore, he cannot claim insanity. Hope he gets shanked in prison!!!

    Read Flicker by Theodore ruszak to understand what James Holmes studied and what it has to do with the Dark Knight and what happened to James Holmes, as a result.

    I think this man should be let free so he can kill the rest of the trashy society.

    Yes… Of course he doesn't remember what he did now after the electro shocks in Jail, right?!

    Re: Angela430 – I don't know if you read the whole story but the judge HAS to enter a plea of not guilty if the defendant is refusing to enter his own plea. You know, the whole innocent before proven guilty thing. And this will most likely go to a jury, so it's not the judicial systems fault if a jury of his (and your) peers decides he's "insane".

    Why have the records been closed so that no information on what holmes studied under DARPA funding, has been released to the public?

    Re: fid – Agreed, I read his attorney was not ready to enter a plea so the judge entered one for him, leaving options open at a later date. Too bad they no longer have the electric chair in Colorado. Old Sparky (for those of you who watched The Green Mile) would be about right.

    Look at his pupils. Does he even know where he is?
