9 month ago

Judge Paul L. Friedman allowed John Hinckley to live outside his mother's house in Virginia. The man accused of shooting and wounding President Ronald Reagan and three other people outside a Washington hotel in 1981.

The 63-year-old can now move out the house where he lived since 2016 with his ninety-year-old mother, to live within 75 miles of Williamsburg city after the approval of his doctors.

The judge's decision was under several conditions: he can not own a gun, consume drugs or alcohol. He also shouldn't try to contact his victims families, or be there where are former and current U.S. presidents, vice presidents and members of Congress.

Hinckley's attorney said that he will request even more independence in the future. His next court date is scheduled for June.
