Prosecutors in Holmes Case Get University Records
Arapahoe County District Court Judge William Sylvester’s ruling requires that confidential information be blacked out.
At a hearing last week, prosecutors argued they needed copies of some 100 pages of educational records subpoenaed from the University of Colorado Denver, where suspect James Holmes was a neuroscience doctoral candidate.
Prosecutors say the documents are needed to build a case that would establish a motive for the July 20 shooting that killed 12 people and injured 58 others.
Attorneys for the state say that Holmes made threats, failed a key exam and had been encouraged by professors to seek another line of work in the weeks prior to the shooting.
