James Holmes' family stands by their son -- this according to the family's lawyer.

The lawyer spoke moments ago during a new conference in San Diego -- and when asked if James' family supports him, the lawyer replied, "Yes, they do. He's their son."

The Holmes' family lawyer addressed the media to clarify a recent ABC report, in which James' mother Arlene allegedly identified her son as the mass murderer, saying, "You have the right person."

The lawyer read a statement on Arlene's behalf -- claiming Arlene had replied "You have the right person" in reference to herself ... when the reporter asked if she was Arlene Holmes, mother of James Holmes.

Arlene's statement continues, "At this time, we will not be discussing James and his relationship to the family."

As for the original report -- ABC News says it stands by its story.

You are contradicting yourself. His family is speaking out, but the next sentence they won't be present. How about just posting a representative of the family will read a statement and that's it. Sheesh.

I was "awoken" not "awakend"
You'd think a lawyer would know basic grammar.

The speaker should finish what she's eating, before going to the mic. Very distracting mouth action.

The shooter's punishment should be spending the rest of his life in a cell with his parents attorney. Her voice is torture.

If under the new medical laws a child can stay on a parents insurance until 26, why shouldn't parents be financially responsible until the child is 26?

This attorney's voice makes me want to be deaf.

wtf is wrong with her mouth? Looks like the same sh*t that happens to Courtney Stodden's mouth in interviews. Probably too much old man semen.

WHAT WAS THE POINT OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE IF SHE IS NOT GOING TO COMMENT ON THE PERTINENT QUESTIONS?
