I have had countless requests for more information about the woman who was sitting to the left of the Joker, James Holmes, throughout his courtroom advisement. Her name is Tamara Brady, and she was randomly picked as Holmes’ assigned public defender. While suspects usually interact with their defenders during the judge’s address, Holmes sat completely silent — rolling his eyes and practically falling asleep…
Defense attorney Tamara Brady and state public defender Daniel King arrive for the first court appearance for mass shooting suspect James Homes at the Araphajoe County Courthouse in Centennial, Colorado, July 23, 2012.
This is not the only murderer Brady has defended, Josiah Sher was one of four men charged in the 2011 murders of an Aurora, Colorado couple, Amara Wells and Robert Rafferty.
