Karrer confirms the grade report he wrote for the defendant
Karrer says defendant had eight A's and 2 B's
Karrer read notes to the Holmes family. One says the defendant set up Net Zero on his computer
@caz: They never give us a schedule like that, but usually lunch starts between noon and 1230
Karrer said the defendant was the first child to beat him in a foot race. "I am sure he was pleased with himself"
@Me: It was a lot more extensive than that. The building was gutted
They're going to take a lunch break now
Prosecution now making their objection about the parent's letters
Prosecution says Arlene Holmes wrote about trying to understand mental illness
Prosecution says Arlene's letters include that she prays for the victims, and says she knows defendant didn't "choose this"
Prosecution argues that it is not appropriate to discuss mental health and also that most of the letters (44 from Arlene and 4 from Bob) are all objectionable. Judge Samour asks for a chance to read them over the lunch break
Brauchler says he also has other objections to lodge
Judge will read the letters over lunch
Higgs says she anticipates Bob Holmes testifying first, so she'll have time to get the court a copy of the letters from the mother
Judge is handed copy of the letters from the father
Brauchler says the defense appears to plan to introduce 100+ documents including photos and he argues they are cumulative in nature... like photos of every basketball team the defendant played on
