James Holmes’ lawyers have spoken out about their client — and they’re asking for more time to evaluate his current mental state. Read on for more details!

James Holmes lawyers appear to be gearing up to plead insanity for their client who allegedly went on a shooting spree in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater, killing 12 people and injuring 58.

“We cannot begin to assess the nature and the depth of Mr. Holmes’ mental illness until we receive full disclosure,” Defense attorney Daniel King said in court on August 9 in front of multiple news outlets.

Daniel went on to say that James reportedly sought out Colorado psychiatrist, Lynne Fenton, and that an official hearing to evaluate their relationship will take place August 16.

The Dark Knight Rises shooter is currently facing 24 counts of murder and 116 counts of attempted murder on July 30.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do YOU think James will plead insanity? Weigh in below.

He is sooo creepy looking, i cringe when i see his face. He deserves to be thrown in with the rats and bats with no electricity and eat rotten leftovers.

I agree , I believe he is putting on the act as if he’s crazy . I believe he should be put on death row for a long time, then after years he should be exacuted .

I can’t even bring myself to read this article, but I can draw to conclusion already that this is a bunch of BS… I understand that to some people… defending freaks/scumbags like this is a job or a way to pay bills && that everyone has a right to trail…blah blah blah… but I can’t bring myself to understand how the people who defend these freaks look at themselves in the mirror every day && feel good about the person they see looking back. Or how they can potentially put someone like that back into society … putting innocent people in danger.. What if someone in their family became their client’s next victim ?
