Government: Reagan shooter release ‘premature’
Question of the Day
Government attorneys say a proposal to let the man who attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan leave a mental hospital on weeks-long visits to his mother’s home and ultimately live there is “premature and ill conceived.”
John Hinckley has spent the past three decades largely confined to a Washington mental hospital after being found not guilty by reason of insanity in Reagan’s 1981 shooting. Over the years, however, he has been permitted more and more time outside the facility.
In 2009, a judge granted him a dozen 10-day visits to his mother’s home outside Washington.
Prosecutors wrote Friday in a court document that they oppose a hospital proposal to increase the visits to 17 and 24 days and ultimately let him live full-time at the home.
