A Virginia man who planned to kill employees at the D.C. headquarters of a conservative Christian organization last summer received mental health treatment for hallucinations months before he tried to storm the building and shot a security guard.
An Idaho man facing charges of attempting to assassinate President Obama was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation and held without bond at a preliminary hearing Monday in U.S. District Court in the District.
However, when Corkins was arrested after the shooting and questioned by police, Mr. Bos wrote that, "it was apparent the demons that led Mr. Corkins to seek treatment in San Francisco six months earlier had returned."
In court documents filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the District, Mr. Bos wrote that if Corkins "were unrepentant and unremorseful for his conduct, and not suffering from a mental illness at the time he committed the offenses, a severe sentence might indeed be warranted in this case."
