James Holmes will learn his punishment for 141 other crimes tied to this case in a hearing that begins Monday; these crimes include the charges for explosives planted in his apartment.Victims, families and the gunman will have another chance to address the court, similar to the other sentencing phase. The key difference is that there will be no jury in this hearing and the sentencing decisions will all be made by the judge.
They don't need to come to any understanding that they don't want to. Their opinion is valid just as much as the judge's.

Really? She really had to do this?! She already had her time in court to do this during the trial and she's going to do it again? So classless on the defense. Horrible.

These parents committed no crime. Leave them alone for Christ's sake.
by Face Ripper8/25/2015 10:47:11 PM
The parent's did not do this. She sounded sincere and it does have to hurt her, no one would ever want to go through her position just like they wouldn't want to go through the victim's positions. I don't find it in me to attack them because their son is vile animal. I hope they find some clarity in their lives just like I wish the same for the victims.
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 10:48:11 PM
The Judge sounds so surprised when JH says No to making a statment.
by LG8/25/2015 10:48:48 PM
I feel sorry for Mrs. Holmes, and I can see that she must believe that her Monster of a son is sick and not evil, but she needs to stop telling people that they need to understand it's not his fault. It is and she needs to accept it.
by TB8/25/2015 10:48:57 PM
JH chicken's out and refuses to make an ellocution statement
by CindyL8/25/2015 10:49:08 PM
I knew he wouldn't!! Of course he has no REMORSE for anything!!!
by Joey8/25/2015 10:49:41 PM
Ugh...lost the feed :(
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 10:52:08 PM
Oh the feed did NOT just do that!
by Sheila8/25/2015 10:52:36 PM
Really D7? You can't keep a feed going?
by viewer8/25/2015 10:52:47 PM
Channel 7 doesn't control the feed. :) They just carry it, the County runs the feed.
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 10:53:30 PM
switch to D31 they did not lose feed.
by viewer8/25/2015 10:54:10 PM
I think he'd like solitary. I don't see someone so arrogant and superior doing well in the General Population though.
by TB8/25/2015 10:55:52 PM
I'd want the exact opposite...gen pop. He'll love solitary.
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 10:56:45 PM
YES!! PREACH IT GB!!
by Kristle8/25/2015 10:57:48 PM
I think he should be released free and clear.
by Feedback Guy8/25/2015 10:59:02 PM
GB has done a great job of clarifying just how well-kept "that guy" will be for who knows how long.
by Keeter8/25/2015 11:01:42 PM
And your shill came through.
by JW8/25/2015 11:02:36 PM
I can't believe the Defense team has been sitting there looking bored to death all this time. A little professionalism and respect wouldn't have hurt them any.
by TB8/25/2015 11:03:55 PM
I absolutely believe the PT did their absolute best. Brauchler and his team have my utmost respect and gratitude.
by COMAMA8/25/2015 11:03:57 PM
it was a false plea bargain -- they wanted to get the deal and then plead NRGI and get out of jail free
by mandi8/25/2015 11:04:16 PM
I think Nelson is asleep
by Victoria8/25/2015 11:04:30 PM
HE HAS AFFECTED THOUSANDS WHO WILL BE CHANGED FOR ALL OF THEIR LIVES, BESIDES THE DEAD. THANK YOU DT FOR NO APPEAL. I PRAY THE JUDGE LISTENED AND HASNT MADE UP HIS MIND.
by suzanne m8/25/2015 11:05:08 PM
Of course they wouldn't file for appeal...token bs from the defense.
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 11:05:11 PM
Defense will not seek appeal
by Phil Tenser8/25/2015 11:05:30 PM
DT LIES. ALWAYS DO. IT'S THEIR JOB TO APPEAL!
by suzanne m8/25/2015 11:06:04 PM
There is no grounds for an appeal. He admitted to committing all of the counts against him.
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 11:06:43 PM
SMH.......oh yeah, King, that "helps" the survivors that JH won't appeal.........
by Kristle8/25/2015 11:06:54 PM
I am not a Brauchler fan. His showmanship is the equivalent to really bad acting. All the money he wasted to keep his name on the news. Worst DA ever for Arapahoe County. He enjoyed every minute of his charade. Just my honest opinion.
by Rick S8/25/2015 11:07:09 PM
As if an appeal would do anything - how ridiculous that dt has been.
by JW8/25/2015 11:07:48 PM
HE'S "MENTAL" REMEMBER... EVERY TIME THEY OBJECT, THEY HAVE SET UP THE RIGHT TO APPEAL. WE'RE NOT DUMB!
by suzanne m8/25/2015 11:07:49 PM
Can't the Holmes family hire a private attorney to handle the appeals? I guarantee you this ain't over no matter what King says.
by puglove8/25/2015 11:08:36 PM
Rick S - understand Braucleer acted in accordance to victim's wishes....someone had to give a d----about them.
by JW8/25/2015 11:09:05 PM
If there was a death penalty, yes, they set up for appeal. Since death penalty is off the table, they know they would never win an appeal to set him free because he admitted to all of his charges, mental illness or not. They cannot appeal for him to be placed in a hospital, the jury already threw out the insanity.
by Marsha Laurienti8/25/2015 11:09:43 PM
Maybe a better way to state it is that "the defense won't seek AN IMMEDIATE appeal". They may still appeal at a later date.
by Sherrie H.8/25/2015 11:09:47 PM
Why would the family appeal what do they have to gain?
by JW8/25/2015 11:10:04 PM
I think there are appeal attorneys just for that purpose.
by Tammy Garrison8/25/2015 11:10:24 PM
I can't imagine what possible good it would do to appeal.
by Sherrie H.8/25/2015 11:11:10 PM
Well, after paying Gur half a mil let's not keep the defense gravy train rolling.
