The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan may soon get the most freedom he’s had since the 1981 shooting outside a Washington hotel.
A lawyer for John Hinckley Jr. is discussing a possible agreement with U.S. attorneys that would substantially reduce conditions imposed on him after his release from a mental hospital in 2016.
That’s according to discussions at a federal court hearing Wednesday.
Hinckley has been living full time with his mother and brother in a gated community in Williamsburg, Virginia.
A new risk assessment of Hinckley has been completed and doctors have recommended the reduced conditions.
