Attorneys for Aurora movie theater shooter try to keep cameras out of the courtroom
James Holmes’ attorneys have asked a judge to deny media requests to allow cameras in the courtroom for their clients’ arraignment hearing March 12, at which time the Aurora movie theater shooter is expected to enter a plea.
In a court document made public on Monday his attorneys argue that “[g]ranting such requests would jeopardize Mr. Holmes’ constitutional rights to due process, a fair trial, to be presumed innocent, and to a fair and impartial jury.”
Holmes is charged with 166 felony counts in the July 20 shooting in Aurora during the midnight premier of The Dark Knight Rises that left 12 people dead and 70 people injured.
