Aurora Theater Shooting

James Holmes case: Defense drops sanction request over strange second mug shot

Attorneys for accused Aurora theater shooter James Holmes have answered the question we posed last week in this headline: "Should law enforcement be punished for releasing strange new mug shot?" The answer is no -- at least according to Holmes's lawyers, who were the ones asking for the punishment in the first place. They filed a notice yesterday that they're withdrawing their request after talking with the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department.
