The office that polices lawyers in the District of Columbia is investigating whether prominent lawyer Joseph E. diGenova violated ethics rules by falsely claiming he supervised the federal prosecution of John W. Hinckley Jr., who tried to assassinate President Reagan, sources said.
Prominent D.C. lawyer Joseph E. diGenova has billed himself as a battle-tested former prosecutor who supervised the high-profile prosecution of John W. Hinckley Jr., who tried to kill President Reagan. But Mr. diGenova had no role in the prosecution or the trial, according to court records and those who did prosecute the case.
On March 30, 1981, outside the Washington Hilton Hotel, John Hinckley Jr., described by a presidential assistant as "a kid from a good family in Colorado who just happened to be crazy," opened fire with a small handgun, wounding the president of the United States, his press secretary, a Secret Service agent and a D.C. police officer.
