February Hearing Date Set for John Hinckley, Jr.
A February 25 hearing will decide the fate of would-be presidential assassin John Hinckley, Jr. According to the Daily Press, lawyers will be arguing to give him more freedom. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity after his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. John Hinckley received additional conditional releases at a recent August hearing. The opposing lawyers have withdrawn the proposal for additional conditional release, citing Hinckley’s need for further medical attention.
