Federal prosecutors are pushing to keep John Hinckley, the man who tried to kill President Ronald Reagan from getting more freedom.
U.S. attorneys filed a motion Friday asking the court to deny Hinckley request for expanded privileges.
Hinckley is staying at St. Elizabeth’s mental health hospital in D.C. He wants to live with his mother in the Kingsmill neighborhood in Williamsburg VA. As of now he only has visitation rights.
Hinckley also wants to have more time out alone in public.
Last week, Colonial Behavioral Health, which oversees his care, decided not to take part in St. Elizabeth’s treatment plan. The plan involved Hinckley being assigned to social groups at Colonial.
St. Elizabeth’s is working on finding an alternative treatment.
