Because every single person in that movie theater is potentially a victim, we could see (Holmes charged) with hundreds of counts.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Denver Criminal Defense Attorney Doug Richards was on FOX 31 news in Denver to talk about what can be expected for James Holmes’ appearance in court on July 30th. Holmes was accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 in a movie theater at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises on Friday, July 20th, according to CNN.com*. Richards has a unique perspective on criminal defense, as he was formerly a federal prosecutor. Richards has been contacted by several news stations directly because of his outstanding web presence developed with Authentic Web. One of his practice areas is Colorado gun crimes.
Because cameras were not allowed inside the courtroom, Richards was asked to give his thoughts on what could be expected from Holmes’ appearance in court that day. Richards predicted “we will see 12 first degree murder charges,” he goes on to say “because every single person in that theater is potentially a victim, we could see a charging document with hundreds of counts.” Holmes did end up being charged with 24 counts of first degree murder, 2 counts for each of the 12 people killed, and 116 counts of attempted murder in connection with the movie theater shooting, according to CNN.com*.
