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.
THE WASHINGTON TIMES Would-be presidential assassin John W. Hinckley Jr. will have to wait to get his D.C. driver's license and take trips as long as one month to his parents' house, under a recent federal ruling.
He said the prosecution team did "an absolutely superb job."
Hinckley's relationships with women loom as a major area of concern regarding his release because he said he shot Mr. Reagan to impress actress Jodie Foster.
