CENTENNIAL, Colo. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Colorado movie theater shooting suspect James Holmes is now reportedly offering to plead guilty.
His lawyers made the offer in a motion filed Wednesday.
They're asking that Holmes would not get the death penalty in exchange for the guilty plea.
Prosecutors however have yet to accept the plea, as they may want to accept the death penalty.
They would likely consult with victims and their families before deciding whether to accept the offer.
