Bizarre motion filed in Aurora theater shooting suspect James Holmes case

By Jeremy Jojola

A bizarre motion filed in the James Holmes case declares the suspect innocent and calls for the court to release the defendant to her custody. 9Wants to Know picked up a copy of the motion at the Arapahoe County Justice Center while checking up on the status of the case.

9NEWS Legal Analyst Scott Robinson says high-profile cases sometimes receive strange motions. “People who are motivated to inject themselves in high-profile cases will do so,” Robinson said.

“Holmes is an innocent man. James Holmes must be released to me ASAP. This is a huge conspiracy,” the motion reads. “I am the Allison Ernst who came to court bald with a red dress.” The one-page motion references other conspiracies, including a new world order and the death of Michael Jackson.

On Aug. 9, a bald woman who was wearing a red dress was ejected from the courtroom during a hearing regarding the unsealing of court records. The woman, later identified as Allison Michelle Ernst, stood up in the middle of the hearing and claimed to have new evidence in the case. The Ernst motion was denied after Judge William Sylvester signed an order saying she “has no standing to intervene.”
