Prosecutors Reject James Holmes Guilty Plea
DENVER - Prosecutors say they aren't ready to accept an offer from Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes to plead guilty in exchange for avoiding the death penalty. In a court filing yesterday, prosecutors said the defense hasn't provided key details they need to consider a plea. They also said the disclosure of the offer was a publicity ploy by the defense that violated the judge's gag order. Defense lawyers said Wednesday that Holmes has told the District Attorney's Office he would plead guilty if prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.
