John Hinckley, man who shot US President Ronald Reagan, granted unconditional release

Would-be presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr., has been granted unconditional release in June 2022 by a federal judge.

Hinckley wounded President Ronald Reagan and three others outside Washington D.C. hotel in a failed assassination attempt in 1981.

A federal judge ruled on Monday September 27 that the man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan four decades ago, can be freed from all remaining restrictions next year if he continues to follow rules and remains mentally stable.

Hinckley was found not guilty by insanity for the 1981 shooting that left Reagan with a chest injury. His press secretary, James Brady?, was paralyzed, while a Secret Service agent, and cop were also shot. He was committed to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in D.C. after the verdict, where he lived until 2016 when a federal judge signed off on his release, with restrictions.
