Judge in Holmes case needs to do his job properly

Apr 16, 2013 - William Borwegen, Riverton


In your newspaper on Tuesday, April 2, on page 2, there was an article about the prosecutors asking for the death penalty for killer James Holmes.

The presiding judge, William B. Sylvestor, stated that he does not have the time to preside over this "so called" drawn-out matter.

My question is, what is this judge being paid for, with public funds, that he cannot properly do his job?

Why is this case being drawn out when it is a cut-and-dried case that this individual has committed this dastardly crime?
