The district attorney said even if the judge allowed prosecutors to look at the contents of James Holmes' notebook, the ruling would likely have been appealed, and the D.A. doesn't want to delay the trial.
Also, if Holmes pursues an insanity defense, the suspect would have to waive privilege, and prosecutors would gain access to the notebook.
The source article shows a photo of Holmes without his "orange-red" hair... but I won't include it cause it creeps me out.
If the defense does intend to plead innocent (by reason of insanity), I can't help but wonder what the community's reaction will be? Granted that insanity is considered a circumstance beyond the control of the accused... but it will be a bitter pill to swallow for all the grieving family members.
