Aurora Shooting Suspect James Holmes Now Hopes To Plead Insanity!

james holmes insanity plea expected change aurora shootings dark knight

It's been almost ten months since James Holmes allegedly murdered 12 people in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater and injured another 70, but his trial is barely yet underway.

Months ago, we told you the supremely disturbed suspect entered a "not guilty" plea — perhaps in hope of escaping the death penalty — but now James' and his legal team are attempting to modify their defense.

James now plans to change his plea to not guilty by reason of insanity!

And it's looks like the judge might let him do it!

Judge Carlos Samour recently told the courts:

"Allowing Mr. Holmes to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity would be consistent with fairness and justice."

The prosecution isn't happy with this eleventh hour switcheroo — they maintain the defense hopes only to delay the proceedings.

District attorney Jacob Edson said:

"Our largest frustration is the amount of time it has taken to get to this point."

Hopefully justice is served quickly, allowing the victims' families and loved ones to find closure and continue healing!

    "Suspect"? Really? As if everyone on the planet, including him, doesn't know he did it. How is that suspect? Screw the legal jargon and call a spade a spade. "Aurora Murderer, James Holmes, Now Hopes To Plead Insanity!

    he plead guilty to avoid the death penalty not "not guilty" and yes he is certainly guilty and should spend the rest of his life in jail and hopefully be tortured there!
