The disclosure was made in court documents released Friday. This comes after 9Wants to Know reported Holmes attempted suicide three times of the past week.
"Council for Mr. Holmes are extremely concerned about the well-being of their client and are currently being denied any information from the jail about his welfare," his attorneys Daniel King, Tamara Brady and Kristen Nelson wrote in their court motion.
The attorneys also requested the court consider imposing sanctions upon Undersheriff Dave Walcher and Lieutenant Verlin Crecelius. The attorneys say both men first refused to allow then to visit Holmes Thursday morning.
The motion says the attorneys were told they could see Holmes at 1 p.m. Thursday, but when they arrived at the jail they were told they could not meet with Holmes.
"Approximately 45 minutes later, counsel received a phone call from Undersheriff Walcher informing them once again that they would not be permitted to see Mr. Holmes and that he would provide no reason or explanation," the defense's court motion says.
Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson told the 9Wants to Know investigators that he feels it is not appropriate to comment at this time and he expects to have his say in court.
