The defendant in the Aurora theater shooting can be given “truth serum” if he pleads not guilty by reason of insanity, the judge in the case said Monday. The man, James E. Holmes, also could be given a polygraph examination as part of an evaluation to determine if he was legally insane at the time of the July 20 shootings, Judge William Sylvester said. The judge approved the use of a “narcoanalytic interview,” a decades-old process in which patients are given drugs to reduce their inhibitions. The prospect of such an interview alarmed defense lawyers, who filed documents opposing the technique. Mr. Holmes, 25, is scheduled to enter a plea on Tuesday to multiple counts of murder and attempted murder. He is charged with killing 12 people and wounding 70 at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

    He has already told inmates when he was locked up that he was not insane, and that he wanted to do it. I don't think he will get insanity plea if he is bragging about it to other inmates.
