AURORA, Colo. – Attorneys asked the judge handling the Aurora shooting case to throw out evidence because of lack of police procedure, according to NBC News.

The attorneys for James Holmes, accused of killing 12 people in the shooting, said that evidence was taken from his home and car without a warrant at the time.

The Arapahoe County sheriff’s office defended their bomb unit’s procedure.

Karen Pearson, attorney for the department, sites that law enforcement has the right to perform imminent-peril searches without a warrant.

A bomb unit searched Holmes’ car where evidence led police to search of his home.
