Court Art: The James Holmes Trial

I've always loved court art for some reason and after seeing some of today's preliminary hearing sketches for the James Holmes trial I thought I should start compiling them.

Which doesn't make me a sympathizer but the case is intriguing because he seems to be suffering from the same symptoms as Sirhan Sirhan after the RFK assassination.

Was/is he a mind-controlled CIA robot, as many believe Sirhan was, or just another nut job with a violent streak in him? It doesn't really matter for my cause here but I'd be interested in hearing him testify if the legal trust allows for it.

I believe that all of the sketches were done by Bill Robles and are copyrighted as such.
