John Hinckley Jr.: Reagan Shooter To Be Released (Video Of Assassination Attempt)

In what is surely a first in U.S. history, a would-be Presidential assassin is being released. John Hinckley Junior, who shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, will be released into his mother’s care next month.

Hinckley has spent the last 35 years in psychiatric care after being found not guilty by reason of insanity. But a new court order says that he no longer poses a threat to himself or anyone else. He’ll be required to live at his mother’s Williamsburg, Virginia home, and his release comes with a few other conditions:

  • He’ll have to undergo outpatient treatment at a Washington, D.C. hospital at least once a month.
  • He’ll have to find a job or take a volunteer position approved by his doctors.
  • He has to let his doctors know before going to any other private residence.

If he successfully completes what doctors are callingĀ “convalescent leave,” he could be entirely free from court control within a year. (USA Today)
